Student Wins Two Medals at Culinary World Cup

Pastry ArtCIA junior Jiyong Park recently competed at the Culinary World Cup in Luxembourg representing her native South Korea and came home with some hardware. Participating in two individual categories—pastry art and pastry showpiece—she earned silver medals in each. Ms. Park was not competing against other students, but rather pastry professionals from around the world.

In addition to her two individual medals, Park assisted her national team in the team competition, helping South Korea take home silver and bronze medals. She says competing is just a fun hobby for her, although she may want to judge competitions in the future. After earning her bachelor's degree in the CIA's new applied food studies major, Park plans to travel all around the world, then return home to Daejeon—South Korea's fifth-largest city—to write and teach.
