March 7th, 2009
Congratulations to CIC student Joe Branton, who brought home the Peoples' Choice Award from the Almost Famous Chef Competition! It was held by Nestles Waters at the Napa Valley branch of the Culinary Institute of America.

In February, Branton won the the Southeastern Regional division competition, which made him eligible to go to the finals. Keeping it true to home, Joe had created a dish of Pork Two Ways with Carolina Gold Risotto and Brussels Sprouts.

Culinary Department Head Michael Carmel and Chef Instructor Scott Stefanelli accompanied Branton to the competition. Thanks to Chef Stefanelli for the pictures above.
