I Was A Teenage Sous Chef...

Yeah, another competition announcement.

No one ever said "make 'em be sauciers and line cooks and such." Still, the International Culinary School at the Art Institute of Dallas is encouraging mamas of high school seniors to push their kids into the service industry...

Actually, the institute hosts a round in this year's Best Teen Chef Competition on March 14, with finalists moving on to the 'championship' in Charlotte this May. The eventual best chef earns full tuition at one of the 30 plus Art Institute-based professional culinary schools.

Enter by February 6. Full details available here. Sixteen hour days and work on almost every holiday await the winner.
