After winning MasterChef Canada, Beccy Stables is moving west.
 
The 19-year-old Sherwood Park teenager and her family will be opening Bec Catering in Kelowna. Stables told MIX 107 her focus is nature-inspired creations, with a goal of un-Americanizing Canadian cuisine.
 
"(My dream) is to cook, recipe development and get my name out there," said Stables.
 
Family members, including her mom, dad, sister and niece will be making the trek to help run the business.
 
"Everyone's life is going to change in my family," added Stables.
 
Stables spent about half of her life in Grimbsby, UK. After a downturn in the local economy, her family moved to Sherwood Park about 10 years ago. Her dad was involved in the trades and was most recently a tile-setter. Stables helped with the job before MasterChef Canada's opportunity.
 
The family has connections in the Kelowna-area and has visited multiple times.
 
Even though she is off to pursue her dream, Stables admits she will miss the prairies.
 
"Alberta in general, a lot of support, they love hometown people. Thank you," said Stables.
 
The $100,000 grand prize from the reality show will help start up the business. Some of the dishes will be similar to what she made in the MasterChef finale.
 
Stables leaves for Kelowna this week.
