SWEET REWARD FOR LUCKY LA CULINARY STUDENT'S HONEY RECIPE

Among tears of joy and a cheering crowd, a panel of Los Angeles-area food experts, chefs and restaurateurs named Monica Miranda of Los Angeles the winner of the National Honey Board's (NHB) inaugural "Sweet & Savory" Scholarship Contest.

Three finalists were chosen from all eligible entries received.

Specifically designed to support U.S. Latino culinary students with their studies, the Contest was held at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College (LATTC). Miranda's Bacon-wrapped Water Chestnuts with Honey, a honey-inspired family appetizer, garnered the highest marks possible from the judges in the competition, earning her the $3,000 scholarship for her 1 st Place finish.
