March 1, 2018 – West Bend, WI – Foodies in West Bend and Washington County will want to tune into the Food Network tonight at 9 p.m. as Crista Luedtke, who hails from West Bend, will be competing against Bobby Flay on the show Beat Bobby Flay.
Luedtke grew up in West Bend, went to St. Frances Cabrini School, and was the first girl on the Little League team coached by John Rozek.
A movie, Empire on Main Street, was even made about Luedtke’s career in the food industry and how she grew to be the force behind Boon Hotels in Guernville, California. (see preview below). Tonight she will put her talents on the line as she takes on master chef Bobby Flay.
On a side note: If the name ‘Luedtke’ sounds familiar, Crista is the daughter of local Shorewest real estate agent Al Luedtke.
