Dearborn native Mei Lin, a Schoolcraft College graduate who grew up cooking alongside her father in the family’s Chinese restaurant on Michigan Avenue, Kong Kow, won Bravo TV’s coveted “Top Chef” title Wednesday night and the show’s $125,000 prize.

Elated at her victory, she said at the end of the show, “My parents are definitely going to be really proud of me. Michael Voltaggio (her mentor and former employer) is going to be really proud of me.
