Stratford Chefs School, Class of 2015 | Manager at The Scone Witch (Ottawa)

“The experience and knowledge of the Chef Instructors surpasses any other course or program I’ve looked at. The level of knowledge learned by graduates of SCS is also far superior then any other graduate students I’ve seen first hand that apply for a job at my business. As an older student I had doubts but SCS gave me the support and determination to finish the program. Turns out it was the best decision of my life! Thank You SCS!!”
