Jose's Story

My passion is cooking.

Cooking happens to be a big part of my families culture and I've taken part in helping every now and then throughout my life. My mom and grandma happen to be very good at cooking and I've wanted to get as good as them when it comes to cooking since I enjoy food a lot. I've been taught that you have to be able to cook in order to make living on your own. I cannot eat fast food for the rest of my life, so being able to cook will help me a lot.

A Note from Ms. Blalock, Jose's Teacher

Jose is a great candidate for the Sur La Table Teen Cooking Program, for he already exemplifies the fundamental level of discipline and interests needed to ensure the most out of the experience. The fact that he is pursuing this passion on his own, outside of school, is within itself a challenging tasks. Jose possesses a combination of ambition and resourcefulness, which would allow him to handle the level of rigor the Sur La Table Teen Cooking Program will require. Through this opportunity, Jose will be able to put his skill with the necessary knowledge to truly get the most out of the culinary arts. We will come to understand and appreciate what it means to work hard, set priorities while holding himself accountable to the expectations set by the program. Jose will come out an even better leader for he will have a vision and grown passion for his place in the culinary arts. The confidence that this builds will allow him to lead others and to support them with their passions.

My experience

Attending the "Sur La table" cooking class was a great way to hone my skills as a cook. I learned new skills to use in the kitchen and i was able to add that to how I do things at home and teach my mom things here and there . I appreciate those who helped me along the way .
