CHIPPEWA COUNTY, Wisc. (WLAX) — A Chippewa County man was named the winner of a nationwide cooking contest Friday.

Blake Sykora won the Great Griddle-Off hosted by Blackstone, a company that makes griddles. He beat more than 180 other entries to win the Golden Spatula.

“I was shocked. I was speechless,” he said. “Just overwhelmed because I know to get to the point that I was at this wasn’t just me winning. Through this entire thing, it wasn’t my competition, yes, I created the entry–this was for this community.”

Sykora’s recipe for Wisconsin Cheesesteak was selected by judges to make the top 32. After that, people voted online for the overall winner.

As the winner of the Golden Spatula, Sykora’s recipe will go in a cookbook. He will also get to cook with a Blackstone chef.
