Kraft Names 'Chefs of Grey Poupon'

Kraft Foodservice has chosen its 2010 "Chefs of Grey Poupon" -- chefs who "embody the spirit of culinary creativity and accomplishment" and use the mustard brand in many of their successful signature creations.

This year's winners are Shannon Johnson, director of culinary, Applebee's; Joshua Linton, executive chef, Aja & the Dana Hotel and Spa, Chicago; and Michael Siry, culinary director, branded restaurants, Big Daddy's City Crab and Duke's, New York City.

The three will judge this year's Grey Poupon-sponsored student culinary competition/scholarship program, to be held May 6 at the Viking Cooking School and Culinary Shop in Glenview, Ill. The winner will receive a $20,000 culinary school scholarship from the brand, and second- through fourth-place winners will receive scholarships ranging from $5,000 to $2,000.

This is the fifth year for the brand's chef selection/student competition program.--Karlene Lukovitz
