My name is Russ Kranich, I’m the Director of Operations at Marriott Vacation Worldwide Corporation. My name is Christa Ruvolo, and I’m a graduate of the Escoffier Online culinary program. I graduated this January, 2014, and I am thrilled. At the Vacation Club, I manage two outlets. I manage a poolside bar and grill as well as a snack bar and I have a staff of twenty, an assistant manager, couple of supervisors, and a really talented team of cooks. Well, I’ve always been really interested in food and I was looking to increase my education and learn a lot more about technique and things like that. So, I was looking for a culinary school that I could manage with my full-time job. For a manager like Christa to have an education in the culinary background is imperative.
There’s so many things I learned in the program that I’m able to bring to my job right now: the safety and sanitation, again, is just so key, it’s critical to every operation. But, just some recipes; we’re able to create our own sauces and dressings. We’ve created some wonderful salads with topping on hamburgers, different sauces for the hamburgers or chicken sandwich. It’s also brought me a different level of leadership to my team. They have a lot more respect for someone with my credentials now and I’m able to lead them a lot better in the kitchen.
The passion that she has, and you know that’s contagious. That rubs off on everybody she’s around, including myself. And so, we’re very thrilled that she had taken the program and gave it 100% effort and came back and she has proven to us that it was definitely worthwhile. When I started the program, I was really doing it on my own. But, I shared that with my boss and more and more he started to see the effects, really, on my performance at work. I was bringing a lot more to the table and he was so positive and encouraging. I’m very supportive of online education and I think particularly in the culinary field. That makes a lot of sense that the chefs and the operators can do the training at their convenience, and, and not the convenience of the facilitator. So, I think that is, really, a big advantage.
Christa has done a lot of this work on her own time and obviously showing her great passion for the training. One of the outstanding skills that I’ve seen come from the program with Christa is her ability to share the kitchen math with our team. One of the most important things was the kitchen math, as well as the safety and sanitation aspects. Having a mastery of that was really important. The Escoffier name was one of the key reasons I really looked into the program. Obviously, he’s a world-renowned, famous chef and, you know, the father of modern cuisine, really, so that held a lot of weight for me. The Escoffier name on a resume definitely jumps off the page. To me, that’s someone who has a great passion about what they do. Having that on my resume really puts me in a different echelon. I would totally recommend this program to all kinds of people. If you’re disinterested as a home cook and want to get better at it, I would recommend it. But, as far as being in the business, it’s, it’s stellar. My name is Christa Ruvolo, and I’m a graduate of the Escoffier Culinary Online Academy.
“I joined Escoffier Online as I have been wanting to take a culinary course (for career advancement) for a while now and have been searching for one that fit in with my career/lifestyle.”
“Escoffier Online fit that bill. I have been working as a cook/sous chef/chef on yachts for the past four years and this industry does not allow time for a regular brick and mortar school. I also found, when looking for jobs, more and more employers want employees who are Culinary Trained. I was so excited to find Escoffier Online and to be able to work within the confines of my schedule. The Chef Mentors were fantastic with their feedback and the presentations were thorough. It was really nice to be able to go back to particular presentations for reference as I did on a few occasions.”
