I am the Executive Sous Chef for a Country Club in North Carolina. I help manage a staff of 12 with a fantastic Exectutive Chef who is very supportive in my certifications, schooling, etc.
I have an associates degree in culinary technolgy and have been cooking all my life and professionally for over 15 years. I love it, love making and eating food
As far as my choice of what I like to cook, French and Asian quisine would have to be my favorite. My style of cooking leans towards fusion. Fusing American, French and Asian mostly, and other tricks or ideas I've picked up from my training with some great chefs.
Anyone else like to share some info about themselves? I;d like to meet a few of you, if you dont mind.
Personally, I'm an avid amateur who put her first family meal on the table at age 9. I made my first pot of chicken soup at age 12, which was when I felt comfortable lifting an 8 quart stock pot. I bake a little and love to eat. My taste buds are precious to me!
Professionally I am a 29-year veteran public school teacher. Every day I face six classes of middle schoolers and coax them into caring about becoming strong readers. I love to travel, read and hang out at Chef Talk.
Great to meet you too. I'm honored to meet a teacher. Of all the teachers I've had the pleasure to learn under, my 7th grade english teacher was the most inspiring. He tought us to do what we love, which for me was cooking. :chef:
