SCS Favourites: 20 of the Best Stratford Chefs School Recipes You Can Cook at Home!
Summer JL Baird
Stratford Chefs School, Class of 1998 | Owner, The Hintonburg Public House, Ottawa
“The Stratford Chefs School provided me with the tools needed to excel in the restaurant industry. The small-scale class sizes and hands-on approach attributed to my accomplishments today. Not only did I gain a solid foundation of culinary skills, but also the discipline and knowledge required to open and run my own restaurants. From the budget and design to creating quality food and drink, the courses cover everything you need to get started and the clout and connections to get you where you want to go.
The students are fortunate to work alongside world-renowned chefs and professionals who are active in the industry. I feel this ‘real life’ exposure compliments the training and is rare to find. SCS is the perfect recipe for success in the industry and why so many graduates go on to have such exciting and impressive careers.”
