Stratford Chefs School, Class of 2016 | Chef Instructor and Chef's Assistant at Dish Cooking Studio and Lucy Waverman for Globe and Mail

“The information taught at SCS takes choices from a matter of opinion and habit to being researched and thought out. I find that my voice and style as a Chef are respected because my SCS education has given me such a stable foundation that is well respected throughout the industry. Courses such as Commodities and Gastronomy have provided me with the inspiration to aim for a Masters Degree in Food Studies. Without these courses, I would not have experienced such great stepping stones toward research in food and culture.”
