We are proud to announce that Justin Yap, a May Culinary Arts graduate, represented SUNY Broome in the National American Culinary Federation’s “Student Chef of the Year” competition. Yap competed against the best student chefs from across the country, each vying for the National Title. For months prior to the competition, Justin studied and practiced with incredible dedication. His hard work paid off and he was awarded a silver medal.
During the fierce competition, Yap was required to prepare an amuse bouche, as well as an entrée that had to be made using a bone-in pork loin.
Stay tuned to learn more about what Justin presented to the judges and about his journey to the national competition!
Congratulations, Justin! We are all so happy for you!
