Aries Do and Larry Colbert, students in the Associate of Arts in Culinary Arts program at non-profit The Art Institute of Atlanta, have won the honor to participate in the Meal Through the Arts, a culinary competition to support No Kid Hungry in its fight to end childhood hunger.

Aries Do Larry Colbert

Colbert’s Braised Duck with Mixed Vegetables and Creamy Mashed Potatoes was selected as a regional winner in the Entrée category of the competition while Do’s Caramelized Onion Duck Rillette was selected as a regional winner in the Canapé category of the competition. Both will join 11 peers from Art Institutes locations across the country (on April 12 at the Stave Room in Atlanta) to cook for a panel of celebrity judges and a live audience at the Meal Through the Arts event. 

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

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