Follow Rochester-born chef Irma Cádiz as she competes on a new cooking show.

The Great American Recipe is a new eight-part cooking competition that seeks to celebrate the diversity of American cuisine. The series features home cooks from all corners of the country and gives them a platform to showcase their unique dishes as they compete to win the search for "The Great American Recipe." The show is hosted by Alejandra Ramos and judged by Leah Cohen, Tiffany Derry and Graham Elliot.

Contestant Irma Cádiz hails from Rochester, where she grew up eating Dominican and Puerto Rican food. The multicultural environment in which she grew up exposed her to a wide range of cuisines, which developed into a passion for cooking later in life. The Great American Recipe premieres on Friday, June 24, 2022 at 9 p.m. on WXXI-TV.
