KENAI- A Seward girl's passion for cooking landed her a dinner at the White House, where she met the president and first lady.
 
Nine-year-old Rowan Bean attended the 2013 Healthy Lunchtime Challenge Kid's State Dinner. She was chosen as Alaska's winner in the recipe challenge contest.
 
Her winning recipe was for Alaska rockfish and spot prawn ceviche with mango.
 
She developed the recipe with her father, Erik Slater, a chef for two of the seasonal lodges in Seward.
 
Rowan says the best part of the trip to Washington, D.C., was meeting first lady Michelle Obama. President Barack Obama was an unexpected visitor to the luncheon, and Slater says he took the time to talk to every person in the room.
