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 Hani Ali— Executive Chef/CASA Mentor

“Being a product of an apprenticeship (externship) program I cannot say enough about it. 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 with (and know) the real pressures of the culinary industry.”
