WHAT OUR STUDENTS HAVE TO SAY...

"The past ten months have been amazing. I had the opportunity to eat incredible food, visit wonderful places, and make relationships that will last a lifetime. Thinking back to when I first arrived it’s crazy to see how much I’ve changed and grown as a person. This opportunity has opened so many doors, both professionally and personally. Throughout my journey I learned not only about gastronomy, but I also learned many life lessons that helped shaped my mentality about everything."

Aarón’s mother, Zarela Martinez, a strong Latina chef, has been mentoring Yan and has truly taken Yan under her wing.
