Great story. Good luck to him.

My only question would be why he chose the Art Institute's culinary program when the Culinary Institue of America is the premier school?

I'd sure like to know what he is cooking - then get the recipe. Nice to see a young man with goals. Best of luck to you.

"Dortch will compete against 33 other young chefs from across the United States for the Best Teen Chef title. The winner receives a full scholarship to The International Culinary School and the chance to be an "Intern for a Day" at the Food Network kitchens in New York.

The Art Institute created the Best Teen Competition in 2000 to encourage and recognize young culinary talent."
