He's been working in the kitchen for more than 15 years, but chef Joey Bruneau once considered pursuing a career in art. He even received a full scholarship to attend the Art Institute of Phoenix, where he would have studied design.

The idea of having a desk job didn't appeal to Bruneau, so he chose a career in the kitchen.

"So, I guess, food is my art now," Bruneau says.
