"Every year I win the cook-off contest under a different identity." He teases. "Or I judge it. Either way, it can be very fun. And I'm especially amused about how they never learned the difference."

"Of course, I limit myself to that particular contest. Anyone who eats well at a cook-off gets rewarded. And cooks can be surprisingly generous in defeat, as it turns out."
