Food Network Host Ben Vaughn

Chef Ben Vaughn, consultant, chef and host of Food Network's Health Inspectors, recently stopped by Culinard, the Culinary Institute of Virginia College in Birmingham, to speak with students and alumni as part of his culinary school speaking tour.

"I see a lot of myself in culinary students because [cooking] is a career that accepts all kinds of people," Vaughn says. "It requires your attention, the ability to show up on time and to work really, really hard and repeat that day after day."
