Student Spotlight: Elizabeth Ryback

Elizabeth Ryback photoElizabeth is a recent Graduate of Escoffier Online International Culinary Academy and completed the Culinary Arts Program in just one month! We hope you enjoy her story!

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. Funnily enough the day I finished the course my work permit for my new job came through!

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.

Thanks Escoffier Online.
