Today in St. Louis’ Post-Dispatch:
Parkway Central senior Brett Eisen was named national high school chef of the year Saturday night in Miami.
Eisen, 18, beat out nine other finalists in the entrée division of the competition. His recipe, oven-roasted sea bass with citrus-scented Israeli couscous, had been chosen from among hundreds of entries in an annual competition sponsored by Johnson & Wales University, a four-year college that specializes in culinary arts and nutrition.
Eisen receives a full scholarship to Johnson & Wales, renewable for four years. He plans to enroll in the university’s Denver campus in the fall.
Let’s hope he decides to return home after J&W and follow in the footsteps of some of our local greats!!!
