SOUTHERN MISS GC CULINARY ARTS STUDENT WINS GOLD AT COMPETITION

LONG BEACH - Patrick Buras, a culinary arts student at The University of Southern Mississippi's Culinary Arts Academy (CAA), has turned banana bread pudding into gold.

Buras, of Gulfport, was among gold medal winners during the Seventh Annual Culinary Classic held at the Grand Casino's Bay View Hotel in Biloxi.

His banana bread pudding with dark rum sauce earned him first place in the student dessert category of the culinary competition.

"Patrick is a hard worker and I am proud of him," said Chef Pam Lewis, lead instructor at the CAA.

The Culinary Classic is sponsored by the Mississippi Gulf Coast Chapter of the American Culinary Federation (MGCACF). The competition was started to showcase culinary talent in the Coast area. This year's event helped raise money for the Humane Society of South Mississippi.
