On Feb. 25, KCC student chef Sean Uyehara competed in the Regional Young Chef Rôtisseur competition at The Mill House Restaurant on Maui. Hosted by Chambellan Chris Speere, Uyehara managed to take the win with a three-course meal (appetizer, main course, and dessert), using the ingredients of a mystery basket that was given to him.
Uyehara’s interest in culinary sparked when he began working at a restaurant straight out of Kailua High School. At first, he worked in the front of the house, however, after observing the work that people did in the back of the restaurant, he noticed how fun it was, which led to his decision to enroll in KCC’s culinary arts program.
