On July 24, 2016, two teams of student chefs from The Art Institute of California—Sacramento, a campus of Argosy University, faced-off at the California State Fair Culinary School Challenge.
Brandon Ott and Chang Yang competed against Brian Hughes and Mary Records. All students are working toward an Associate of Science in Culinary Arts from The Art Institute of California—Sacramento. Each team was given a mystery ingredient and asked to prepare a 3-course meal in front of a live fair audience and a panel of qualified judges.
The mystery ingredient was pineapple and team Brandon and Chang took home the victory. They prepared a seared steak with pasta entrée, fried tofu with dipping sauce appetizer, and blueberry peach cobbler for dessert.
Congratulations Brandon, Chang, Brian, Mary, and the entire school’s culinary program for a great show at the California State Fair.

Russ Williams, media art instructor at The Art Institute of
Phoenix, recently directed a sold out musical called "This Moment In Time.”
The event was sponsored by the Holliday Charitable Foundation to raise funds for a variety of charities that help orphaned or disadvantaged children. The evening's activities included a silent auction, a raffle, and the stage play.
Williams served as an early consultant on the script and later agreed to stage and direct the play. The event raised more than $12,000, which was benefitted the following charities: Compassion International, The Shrine of St. Joseph and NPH USA (operates the orphanages in Mexico and South America), and Phoenix Center for the Arts.
