Oregon State chef wins silver at competition (1)
Jay Perry knew he wanted to be a chef at a young age.
"When I was 18, I saw the chef at a hotel I was in," said Perry, chef at Oregon State University Marketplace West Dining Center. "The chef was 34 years old, and back then all chefs wore all white. Just that look that respect when he walked through the kitchen, I said to myself, 'That's what I'm going to be.'"
