For those of you that have been following Emma Frisch, PEAKS Founder and prior Executive Director, you know that her time on the Food Network has come to end. Emma made it through thousands of applicants, through a rigorous casting process and then made it to the FINAL SIX of the competition! We at PEAKS are so proud of Emma and all that she has done to shine a light on the Finger Lakes Region as a source for local, farm-to-fork freshness! You can still vote for Emma as FAN FAVORITE, and show her your support!
