Selecting a winner in this tight race is particularly challenging, as the cornbread and polenta both speak to judges Ali Landry and Allrecipes' Allstar Jamie Yost's Southern roots, along with Allrecipes' Alli Shircliff. All judges agreed that the love each cook put in their dish came shining through.
