Chef Joseph Friel— Executive Chef/CASA Mentor

“As a mentor apprentice (extern) prodigy myself, I can’t say enough about this approach to culinary education.  It’s the sink-or-swim mentality that gives young chefs the opportunity to achieve their goals in a much more efficient manner.”

Chef Hany Ali— Executive Chef/CASA Mentor

“Being a product of an apprenticeship (externship) program, I cannot say enough about it and believe it’s the best way to go. On-the-job experience is invaluable. You can’t be great chef until you’ve done the job for a while in a real kitchen and know the real pressures of the culinary industry.”
