Season 3 of Great Chocolate Showdown premiered on Food Network Canada on 1 March 2022. Like old times, 10 new home bakers were chosen to go head-to-head in the chocolate-based challenges as they temper, melt and swirl their way to a hopeful $50,000 grand prize and the chocolate crown. Connie Kazan who we are discussing in this ‘Connie Kazan Bio’ is among them.
Now, find out who Connie Kazan is as she awaits to prove herself and carve out her own space of a stay-home-mom in the big, bad world of baking.
Connie Kazan On Great Chocolate Showdown
For Connie Kazan, a proud Muslim woman, going on Great Chocolate Showdown was bigger than the trophy and impressing judges Anna Olson, Cynthia Stroud, and Steve Hodge. Wearing the scarf (hijab) she was more of representing Muslim women in the world, just showing that they too can take things to another level. Representing Dearborn, her hometown, she was already feeling like a winner before even the cooking challenge started.
With that being said, Connie (of course) is also representing Wayne County, alongside Bri Brown of Detroit, on this season of the Canadian cooking competition television series that is themed around chocolate baking and confections.
The competition, nonetheless, was no piece of cake especially because Connie does not specialize in chocolate.

My mom is always and forever be big my biggest supporter. She is the reason why I am who I am today. I grow my whole life in a bakery and was never deprived. We fought, argued, and always had our differences. The day I became a mom, I looked at my mom and said I love you for everything you ever did for me. She’s the reason why I’m here today. I would have had my children if it wasn’t for her. I love you Mama, Julia, Jackie, and Summer. Happy Mother’s Day!!!”, Connie said of her mom and sisters.
