Ashley Lawson

Graduated May 2017

“I am truly happy and grateful for attending the Culinary Tech Center. Not only has it provided me with the proper knowledge, skills and certifications that I was seeking to obtain. But I also gained the self confidence in my cooking and in starting my own catering business. My teachers became my mentors guiding me through difficult times, providing me with great advice and sharing their wisdom. I love the small class settings which enabled me to have a lot of one on one attention. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. Overall, being a student at this school was a great experience. I created life long memories and relationships that I will never forget.”

Shaina Quinones

Graduated May 2017

“The program has given me a great work ethic and a lot of skills that I’ve been able to use working in a professional restaurant kitchen. I’m really grateful for my chef instructors’ guidance and all of the instruction I got while studying here. I have been working at Combina in Soho for the past five months—I actually helped them open the restaurant. They serve Spanish-Israeli tapas, and I love my job there.”
