Student Spotlight – Jolene Wilson

Meet Jolene who is a Pastry Arts student with Escoffier Online International Culinary Academy. We hope you enjoy hearing her story!

Jolene Wilson photoHi my name is Jolene Wilson, I’m a pastry lover and a student of Escoffier Online. I am currently enrolled in the pastry program, seeking out a dream of being a pastry chef. The funny thing with dreams is if you don’t answer them they just keep knocking at your door. I answered my dreams with enrolling in Escoffier Online because life is too short.

My passion for baking happened young being fascinated with what you could do with just a few simple ingredients. Little treasures would come out of the oven with heavenly smells. Fast forward 25 years to present, where I am armed with my great grandmother’s recipes and a clear vision of my dreams. After the program I plan to open a cupcakery that is focused on the simple things in life. Following in Escoffier footsteps I plan to make as many products that go into the cakes as possible. With my team we will lovingly make butter, extracts, and a few sprinkles here and there.  Keeping with our simple vision we will also use local fruits and produce as well as have a green foot print on the earth.

If culinary is your dream start answering it with Escoffier. The program has helped me to feel successful in baking as well as be surrounded with chefs and knowledge. Chef mentors are there to help you work through ideas and become fearless in the kitchen.
