Hello!!! My name is Tameka. I have been cooking since the age of 12. I have been cooking professionally for six years. I graduated from Le Cordon Bleu culinary school, and have made it my business to get my hands in any and all venues as far as culinary is concerned. I like to take my time with my students and speak with them to help them customize a learning plan that fits them, so that they will be able to acheive all thier culinary goals. I like to try different approaches to learning such as being very hands on, as well as giving literature for my students to read, and keep as a reference.
I love what I do!!! I have such a deep passion for all things food. I love to read about, watch different shows, talk about, and explore. Every culture has their own unique spin on food, and I want to learn, and know more about it. I have worked in many restaurants, bed and breakfasts, catering, and personal and private chef. I find that as an insturctor, not only do I get the opportunity to welcome someone into the world of culinary, but I also get to learn more too. I find joy, in watching my students learn, and conquer any fears, or trepidation they may have towards food.
Chef Tameka took her time and worked with me at my level and pace. She explained everything to me, and made sure I was comfortable with each process before we moved forward. Once finished she made me recipies that way I was able to keep practicing on my own. I really enjoyed the classes, and loved the fact that she traveled to my home. I will certainly call her again!
I like to have a conversation with a potential student. I try to find out what it is they are actually looking to get out of taking cooking classes. Is this just for fun? Are they considering working in the field? I also find out what if any is their baseline, do they know how to chop, slice, and so on
