Stratford Chefs School, Class of 2015

“The Support a Student Chef award changed the path of my career and education; without it I would not have been able to complete my second year and graduate. I used the money towards my tuition at the Stratford Chef School. My experience at the Stratford Chef School has landed me a position in a Two-Star Michelin restaurant in Chicago, and I plan on returning to Canada to open a restaurant in the future.”
