Disabled Man Beats the Odds to Become a Chef

CYPRESS, Calif. (KTLA) — A man who lost the use of one of his arms has beaten the odds to become a world class chef.

Cooking in a professional kitchen can be difficult with the use of both arms, let alone one, but Colt Munchoff has managed to follow his dream.

He also started a foundation to help other physically disabled people with limited range of motion to develop adaptive cooking techniques.

Munchoff says the purpose of the Foundation is to teach increased skills and greater independence.
