Jamie McFadden, a 1988 graduate of Monroeville High School, is living a lifelong dream.
He currently is executive chef and founder of Cuisiniers, a restaurant located in Winter Park, Fla.
McFadden credits his parents, Dorothy and Jim McFadden of North Monroeville, with getting him interested in being a chef.
"We also got to vacation in different parts of the country and visiting good restaurants was the highlight of the vacation," he said.
McFadden graduated from the International Culinary College in Baltimore and the La Varenne Cooking School in Burgundy, France.
