Stratford Chefs School, Class of 2003 | Owner-Chef, El Cactus Taco Shop, Stratford
The Stratford Chefs School provides the training to create world-class chefs who are comfortable working in any kitchen environment. Its immersive, approachable, interactive curriculum provided me with the tools and confidence that I needed early on in my career to make the transition from the school setting to the workforce. Perhaps most important to me are the lasting friendships that were made, the ongoing support from the SCS community, and exciting collaborations with other alumni.
Our unique program model is method-based, hands-on, experiential, work-integrated learning, safely adapted to Covid-19 protocols.
