Luis drubbed his ten culinary competitors with a triumphant herb-scented seared venison tenderloin. We interviewed Luis before he headed out west. Now he returns home with $13,000 in prize money and a year-long paid apprenticeship with a participating chef. Plus he is officially the 2010 S. Pellegrino Almost Famous Chef.
"I think winning is awesome, but I didn't come here to win, I came here to learn, and it's been a great learning experience," said Luis. "Ultimately you compete with yourself and I think I did very well."
