Jeremy Levy is 10 years old and lives in Hunt Valley, MD with his parents and little sister Jamie. Jeremy has been attending chili cook-offs with his dad Matt since birth. In 2016 he got the opportunity to cook in his 1st chili cook-off at the New England Regional Youth division. Not wanting to use his dad’s recipe we looked online and chose world champion Jerry Buma’s recipe, Booma Revenge. He had a great time competing with his friends who he plays with at every chili cook-off. He then worked diligently on developing his own recipe. Jeremy chooses his chili powders considering their color, smell, and name. His first success was placing 5th at the 2016 World Championship in Reno, NV. Jeremy continued to play with different powders, practicing at home and fine-tuned his spice mix. He was successful in 2017 winning the New England Regional and then followed up by winning the 2017 World Championship Traditional Red Youth Division!
