Hello everyone! On Thursday, May 31st, we celebrated graduation for our most recent group of students to finish the program. For as long as I’ve been here, graduation day never gets old. For the instructors, it’s a chance to see everything come full-circle for all of the students we’ve guided through the program, which is a very rewarding feeling.
Chef Joshua Herbert will be joining the Classic Cooking team as a professional chef/instructor. Chef Hebert will be working with Chef Pascal in the Practical Series and their pending wine classes series.
Congratulations to all, seems like a great fit.
