Culinary student Laurie Borden was the recipient of the TigerChef.com November 2016 Scholarship award based on her application detailing the reason she chose to pursue a career in the food industry.

TigerChef.com, leading online supplier of restaurant equipment and catering supplies, has just announced the winner of its November 2016 Scholarship. The winner is culinary student Laurie Borden, currently enrolled in The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY.

Applicants were tasked with writing an essay detailing what inspired them to choose an educational path in the food industry. Laurie's essay clearly showed her love for cooking.

"It was very exciting to read," said Jay Stefans, CEO of TigerChef.com. "Laurie's enthusiasm in pursuing a career in the culinary industry was refreshing and inspiring!"

Laurie was first introduced to cooking at a culinary summer camp when she was still in middle school. With the thought of "why not continue cooking?" she decided to attend a high school with an academy for culinary arts where she learned all the basics and got to further develop her culinary skill and knowledge. When a recruiter for The Culinary Institute of America came to her class, Laurie was mesmerized by the options that a formal culinary education presented and knew she had found her calling.

"When I found out that I could spend the rest of my life around food as a profession I knew that is what I have to do," Laurie writes. Now she is a Culinary Arts freshman student at CIA and planning to stay for bachelor’s in Culinary Science. "I love every day here, learning about food on a daily basis is the most exciting and fun experience."

We are so happy to help Laurie work on fulfilling her dream to become a great chef and we wish her much success on her path to a wonderful career!
