L'Academie graduate wins Chaine des Rotisseurs regional competition

Seth Brady, a 2007 graduate of L'Academie de Cuisine and a cook at Vinoteca, took first place in the Chaine des Rotisseurs Mid-Atlantic regional Les Jeune Commis competition at L'Academie in Gaithersburg, Md., on March 8. Brady and five other young cooks were given a market basket and four hours to create a three-course meal.

Brady's preparation of Rockfish with Oyster Beurre Fondue, Roasted Leg of Lamb with Dijon jus, Pommes Purée and Roasted Tomato and Braised Pineapple with Pound Sweet Creme Fraiche secured him a spot to compete in the National Finals to be held June 11 to 14 in Scottsdale, Ariz.
