Rebecca Kahn

John D. says, “I discovered a passion for cooking and was even inspired to apply for culinary school!” He is now learning the skills required to become a professional chef and embark on a new career.

Karen P. claimed “The best part about the course was not just the knowledge and skills I gained, but all the new friends I made in class. It was so much fun!”

Bob J. reported that he went home and made the jambalaya recipe taught in class. “My friends said it was the best dish I ever made!”
