Featured Player: Cory Brown
Challenge dynamo Cory Brown from Eagan, MN, is a fixture atop our Clam Leaderboard. Recently, he turned his attention to the Neverending Tomato Challenge, baking fresella, an Italian street snack. “Decided to make the bread myself,” he told us. He also took on the salmorejo, a mouthwatering Andulusian variant of gazpacho, bringing it along for a Purist’s Picnic.
When we decided to make the teams geographically-based, it was a major loss for the Golden Monarchs, who had grown used to Brown’s Challenge prowess. He’s become known around the app for incorporating his family into his pursuits, taking along three kids for an Open Swim, and collaborating with his wife to create a fire pillow that could hold over a thousand cherry pits (see below, from 9 Cherries). He just turned in his oven-barbecued chicken recipe as his Gourmand’s Gift, and we can’t wait to try it. Keep it up, Cory!
