I first met Chef Houman and Chef Rebecca. The two of them were extremely professional and first taught knife skills and professionalism in the kitchen. Almost immediately we began to cook and although I had experience in F&B the two of them taught me much more than I could have expected. Chef Greg taught us a lot of his secrets from his past restaurant and was one of the funniest people I remember.
These people were also mentors and worked with me when I had questions after I graduated. Laurie the owner was professional and made the environment fun. I enjoyed the facilities as well as the field trips. There was a big sense of community when we learned about local farms, etc. This program was well worth it. The amount of knowledge I gained in the time I was there was surprising. It really prepared me for my career in F&B and with Hilton and Hyatt F&B operations. I would recommend this school to anyone!
