Sharone Hakman

Monday, November 7th, 2011

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to chat with Sharone Hakman, finalist of Master Chef Season 1.  Feeling busy and overwhelmed he somehow found the energy to give me the low down on his life leading up MC and what he has been up to since then.

Sharone was born and raised in LA.  He learned to cook from his grandma, who follows traditional cooking tecniques and cooks with love.  At 85 years young she still hosts Friday dinners for the family.  From morning until night she is feeding people.

Sharone married his high school sweetheart and landed a VIP at a private bank.  Being successful in “life” wasnt enought for Sharone, there was still something missing.  Fortunalty he married a strong woman who supported his every decision, so when he approached her about moving to Rhome for six months to cook in a restaraunt.  Right before they moved in 2009, Sharone and his wife had a beautiful baby boy, Luca.  Four days later Sharone left for Mater Chef!

On  a whim Sharone tried out for MC, knowing nothing about it!  He of course made it onto the show challenging his way to the top to the finals!!  Capturing the attention of the one and only, Gordon Rhamsy with his BBQ sauce.  Unfortunalty Sharone did not win  Master Chef, however he is still on top starting his own BBQ sauce company!

Sharone Hakman will be cooking for Cleveland At the Fabulous Food Show which takes place at the I-X Center November 11-13.  He will be featuring comfort food that will make your NEO winter warm and cozy!
