Another year, another win for Kendall College School of Culinary Arts. For the second straight year, a Kendall student has won the S.Pellegrino "Almost Famous" student cooking competition. It's also Kendall's fourth win in this national competition.
The competition was held March 11 in Napa Valley, Calif., and Jennifer Kim, 28, took home the prize for her chard-rolled duck roulade. With the win, Kim receives $13,000 and a yearlong paid apprenticeship with the chef-judge of her choice.
Among the judges: Gary Danko (Restaurant Gary Danko, San Francisco), Bob Hurley (Hurley's Restaurant & Bar, Napa Valley). Jean Joho (Everest), Susur Lee (Lee, Toronto and Shang, NYC), Tony Mantuano (Spiaggia) Michel Richard (Citronelle and Central, both inWashington, DC) and Eric Ripert (Le Bernardin, NYC). Not bad.
Congrats to Kim, and Kendall.
