Meet Michael. As the Culinary Director of Walt Disney World Resorts, he has the role of overseeing all dining experiences. Always on the search to discover talent, Michael reflects on how well Escoffier prepares students for their professional experiences.

Meet Shari. As a digital community manager for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, she wanted to attend culinary school but couldn’t swing a ground campus due to her full-time job. Wanting more experience in the culinary arts so she could enhance her career, the online program was the perfect way to get the education she desired to enrich her profession.

Meet Holden. This executive chef and Escoffier graduate turned to Escoffier Schools to fine-tune the skills he acquired growing up in restaurants. Now that he owns his own restaurant, he hires fellow Escoffier graduates because he knows they’re hard working, efficient and, most of all, passionate.

Meet Stacey. This pastry arts graduate got hired off her externship at Sway, one of the Austin areas hottest restaurants. See how she took her training at Escoffier Schools and turned it into a lucrative career as a sous chef.

This is Jennifer. As Executive Chef of Corner Restaurant-JW Marriott Austin, she only hires chefs she knows can handle the high-quality and high-quantity demands of her establishment. That’s why she turned to Escoffier to help with her staffing needs.

This is Lance. After spending years in the military, Lance set out to pursue his true professional passion: cooking. Working his way up to executive chef, he turned to the online program to fine-tune the skills he’d spent a lifetime accruing. Hear how it changed the way he looked at his menu and business.
