Award-winning cook and Newhall resident Merry Graham is on another lucky streak, having just returned from Portland, where she met Chef Lisa Schroeder from Mother’s Bistro and Bar – a trip arranged by the Turkey Federation.

As noted in this recent article, Graham is one of the finalists in the Aetna Healthy Food Fight contest and would love to be the fan favorite, but she needs popular votes – as easy as a couple of clicks – to win the fan favorite title. Along with the title, Graham gets $10,000 to give to a charitable organization that addresses the problem of world hunger. She has selected the Whole Kids Foundation, which helps kids make healthy choices and guides them to follow a healthy lifestyle.
