Aspiring Young Artist Chefs Made Exquisite Chocolate Arts.

The Creative Hands of Aspiring Young Chefs 

Aspiring Young Artist Chefs Made Exquisite Chocolate Arts.

The amazing Tierra Pacifica Charter School students rocked the kitchen one last time. Today, in our 4th/last class they made Artisan Chocolates with Organic Herbs, Flowers & Fleur de Sel which they loved and promised to make for the Valentine's Day. These enthusiastic foodies and creative young chefs' beautiful teamwork and collaboration was simply amazing. Click here for their beautiful testimonials.  

Thank you Bengie, the amazing aspiring young chef students and the Tierra Pacifica Charter School for the wonderful opportunity to share my love and passion for vegan-vegetarian-Mediterranean cooking with you.

My Amazing Creative Students: Love your wonderful thank you card, it is sitting beautifully in my office.

Aspiring Young Chefs Heartwarming Testimonials.

Such a beautiful time cooking with Tierra Pacifica Charter School Young Aspiring Chefs and enthusiastic foodies. Over the period of 4 weeks they beautifully collaborated, took turns chopping veggies, sautéing, seasoning, plating, setting up the table, enjoying the foods they made and cleaning up afterward, the most amazing students I have ever had. They rocked in our culinary class adventures:

Class 1 – Moroccan Couscous Salad with Lavender Lemon Tahini Dressing  
Class 2 – Pear Lavender Parfait  
Class 3 – Tangy Veggie Wrap with Yogurt Ginger Dressing 
Class 4 – Artisan Chocolates with Organic Herbs, Flowers & Fleur de Sel  

And below is a list of most heartwarming testimonials they gifted me with along with:
