Michael Wallace, a student in the Associate of Arts in Culinary Arts program at The Art Institute of Washington, a branch of The Art Institute of Atlanta, competed against 11 other Art Institutes students in ‘The Meal’ Through the Arts, a culinary competition to support No Kid Hungry in its fight to end childhood hunger.

Wallace’s Pan Seared Duck Breast with Beet and Carrot Gnocchi was selected as a regional winner in the Entrée category of the competition that took place on April 12. Wallace did not place as a final winner, however his experience was rewarding, he said.

The event was hosted by actor Jaleel White and judged by Executive Chef Ito Fuyuhiko, Chef Jamika Pesso, and Certified Master Chef Daryl L. Shular.

The winning student from each of four categories (canapés, salads, entrées, and desserts) earned a $5,000 tuition scholarship to support their culinary education. Their winning recipes will be offered as an exclusive four-course meal to be served at Art Institutes student-run restaurants across the country the week of May 14 – 18, 2018. For every meal purchased during that time, The Art Institutes will make a donation to No Kid Hungry
