On Nov. 2nd, four CIC students tried out for the San Pellegrino Almost Famous Competition: Will D’Erasmo, Mitchell Cooper, Shamona Dunmeyer, and Michael Wilhite. Will was the winner of the competition. Michael was the runner up and first alternate. Chef Instructor Joe Branton (in the photo above left), a former San Pellegrino Almost Famous Competition People's Choice Winner was also in attendance and acted as one of the Chef Judges for the competition. The next step for Will is to compete in the SouthEast Regional on January 27 and 28th at the Art Institute of Atlanta. The finals are in Napa in February.
