CHICAGO— Excellent news for prospective culinary school students: Chef Rick Bayless announced that starting in 2016, his Frontera scholarship — which sends students of Mexican-American heritage to Chicago's Kendall College School of Culinary Art — will now be awarded every year instead of bi-yearly. To make up for the 2015 gap, there are two recipients of the 2014 scholarship. [EaterWire]
