Cheyan's Story

My passion is cooking.

I discovered my passion for cooking when I realized that food isn't just food, food is art and the plate is a canvas. It's something that you create and people can enjoy. Cooking is something I enjoy and I wish to pursue it as a career when I'm older because I know that I can succeed in this.

Sur La Table Teen Cooking Program will help me to pursue my passion by teaching me new skills that will make my cooking better. It will also help me learn to adapt in a kitchen environment and be around people who share the same passions I do.

A Note from Ms. Roncaioli, Cheyan's Counselor

Cheyan has mentioned a strong desire to cook and make this part of her lifestyle! I am hopeful that this program will give her motivation she needs to pursue culinary education after graduation.
