Financial Opportunities for Culinary Arts Student

Financial aid for colleges are not always easy to retrieve. Some many not make all the requirements while others just can’t afford to go to school. That is why The Art Institutes are helping the future culinary students of America to follow their interests in culinary arts. The Art Institutes International Culinary Schools Best Teen Chef Scholarships will be given to those who compete and succeed in winning the cook-offs.

In order to compete, the person must be in their fourth year of high school or has just graduated (ages 16 or over). A recipe with title, ingredients list, instructions, servings, and ideas of presentation must be present as well as an essay between 500 and 1,000 words. A picture of the  dish may be included, but isn’t required. “Today the culinary industry requires chefs with both creative passion and solid technical skills,” says Chef Michael Nenes, Assistant Vice President of Culinary Arts for The International Culinary Schools at The Art
Institutes. “The International Culinary Schools at The Art Institutes nurture creative inspiration as well as solid classical technique.”

Meet the Handmade Pan Pizza from Dominos

Why does it seem like pan pizza is the hottest thing in the pizza market right now? Why is it that this delicious pizza specialty comprises one in every five pizzas sold in the U.S. today? Most importantly, why has Domino’s Pizza, the recognized leader in pizza delivery, not yet gotten into the pan pizza game?

Finally, at least one of those questions can be answered. Domino’s Introduces Handmade Pan Pizza, and it couldn’t come at a better time. The crispy golden crust, the great buttery taste, Domino’s perfect mix of quality toppings and savory sauce – you shouldn’t expect anything less.

With a truly great pan pizza, however, nothing tops freshness. That’s why Domino’s will ensure that its pan pizzas are never frozen and always home-made. With its new campaign unveiling Domino’s grand entrance into the pan pizza market, it also ensures these delicious treats are accessible. The Handmade Pan Pizzas will be available at all of Domino’s nearly 5,000 U.S. stores, and, for a limited time, you can get a medium, two-topping Homemade Pan Pizza for $7.99.

Domino’s is proud to present a New Pizza offers fresh alternative to frozen dough, and eager to win yet more acclaim in pizza dominance.

The Worst Cooks In America: A Platform to Improve Your Cooking Skills

With a lot of reality shows going on air , one of them has actually caught my attention. “The Food Network’s Worst Cooks In America”.  I think the reason for its popularity is purely its  concept, where you will find the so-called “disasters” in the kitchen transform themselves into more than a competent cook using the guidance of some of the best chefs in US.

The first season of the reality show was aired in 2010, where 12 participants (or the recruits, as they put it in the show) took part in the cooking boot camp, which lasted for a period of 6 weeks. Anne Burrell and Beau MacMillan were the two mentors, who trained 6 contestants each. Rachel Coleman, Eddie Chang, Rebecca Hooper, Sophia Gettys, Kelly LoCascio and Hamed Hamad were the recruits of the Red Team mentored by Anne. Jennifer Cross, Jennifer Vecchio, Marque Hernandez, Susie Shoman, David Summey and Wilhelmina Josephine were mentored by Beau in the Blue Team. After 6 weeks of a hard fought contest, Rachel from Anne’s team was declared the winner, after she impressed the restaurant critics by making a wonderful 3-course meal.
