A few words from Scott

“I’ve crossed paths with a lot of people who share a passion for food culture, but they hesitate to take that first step in pursuing their culinary dreams. What the Sur La Table Online Culinary Institute offers is a remarkable capability to provide rich, interactive and hands-on culinary education that is affordable and completely online. The ability to learn at your own pace from anywhere in the country as long as you’re in a kitchen is an opportunity unlike any other. The Sur La Table Online Culinary Institute is providing the tools and opportunity for anyone to pursue their passions - that’s extremely powerful, and I love being a part of it.”
