    Chef Corey’s cooking experience was so much fun, chef takes his time to explain all details of the dish from prep to finish A++


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I love to learn out about my students, Level of Culinary knowledge, how comfortable they are in the Kitchen and Kitchen Goals. This helps me better serve everyone in a class enviroment 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I've been in culinary for more than 20 years. My joy was infused by my parents, Teachers and passion that i have for food. 

My best teacher was Gordon Ramsey 

How did you get started teaching?

After going on MasterChef in 2016, people began to reach out for cooking demos. After i saw how much fun I was having as a teacher the rest was easy. On big stages from the Taste of Chicago, South Beach Food and Wine to Wholefoods Supermarkets and Le Creuset, to inside your home i love what I do and so will you.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students from the ages of 12yrs old up to 100yrs old (Garden Club in Evanston Il) bless their hearts 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure the teacher is fun and has somewhat of kitchen humor. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What is the biggest goal they are looking to accomplish from the class.
