After my experience at Escoffier, I noticed a huge change in my business. I’m making more things from scratch instead of just buying them pre-bottled, using even the remains of vegetables and meats to blend and make marinades and stock. I also really love the routine factor of culinary school. I use that same model now on the food truck and our days run better and orders are going out a lot faster.”**
