Bronze winners for culinary competition

By Sgt. Erica VinyardMarch 17, 2010

Staff Sgt. Brian Chiles and Spec. Kenneth Killingbeck, food service specialists with 529th Regimental Support Company, 4th Battalion, 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard), both earned a bronze medal in the 'centerpiece category' for their 'Fantasia'-inspired sculptures at the 35th Annual Army Culinary Arts Competition in Fort Lee, Va. 
The talented cooks' hard work paid off after working for about 230 hours on their sculptures.
"This was my second year earning bronze in that category and the first for Killingbeck," said Chiles. "It was a great learning experience, getting critiqued by civilian chefs, now knowing what I can do better for next year's competition. We showcased the Old Guard as a small unit but with immense skills." 
The competition is the largest in the country and endorsed by the American Culinary Federation.
