The second season of the Real Women of Philadelphia cooking competition is in full swing!
Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese and Southern Cooking Queen Paula Deen have announced many of the finalists in the second annual Real Women of Philadelphia cooking competition. The quest to crown four fantastic female cooks heats up as they prepare for Savannah.
Members of the site have self-produced short videos showcasing how they use Philly in their favorite dishes, created their own site profiles, uploaded pictures, and written articles. Throughout the competition the community of women has supported each other as they discovered recipes, built friendships and shared their experiences.
The 16 finalists chosen will travel to Savannah for a full week of exciting events as they have the opportunity to meet Paula Deen in person and compete in a cook-off on June 28 and attend the 2nd Annual Real Women of Philadelphia Live Event on June 30 for the chance to be crowned the winner in their cooking category.
The four winners will each receive a talent contract worth $25,000, star in their own cooking videos, contribute to a cookbook featuring the community's favorite cream cheese recipes from the season, and host the Real Women of Philadelphia community for the rest of the year.
