Beth Royals

Henrico County resident Beth Royals is the 2014 $1 million Pillsbury Bake-off winner. Thirteen years ago, Royals, a mother of two, spotted a cooking-with-kids contest, entered and got hooked. She has competed several times in the Pillsbury Bake-Off and participated in the Local Flavors of America Cook-off at The Inn at Little Washington. Her thrill there: meeting judge and chef Sara Moulton. "I love baking and cooking and sharing it with people," Royals says.
