To the Stars...

Satisfaction for us is to see our students go out and excel in what they have been taught. And nothing is quite as exciting for for someone in the food industry as a James Beard Awards (Oscars for the food folks if you will). We have seen many grads win nominations over the years, and this year we offer our congratulations to the following alumni, whose hard work and talent have landed them a place on this coveted list (some more than once).
