My Food Safety Tutor was created unexpectedly through a series of events.
I had been a chef in NYC, NJ, and Las Vegas NV for over 2 decades when a hip surgery removed me from the kitchen. With an unwavering passion for the culinary and hospitality industry, I changed careers and became a culinary educator. In teaching the fundamentals of culinary arts, I placed a strong influence on food safety for our future chefs. I became a certified Servsafe Manager instructor and proctor, and an instructor/proctor for the National Registry to enable my students to master food safety, achieve their Food Protection Manager certification and become more employable. As my students entered the industry, the companies they worked for began asking for my assistance with food safety training for their chefs as well as their line employees. Recognizing the need, I began offering live classes and on-site instruction in the Las Vegas area.
With my experience as a chef, I understood the time constraints of a chef/manager, and how difficult it is to attend an all day class. I began looking for ways to provide a better solution. I began to educate myself on current trends in food safety by reading, studying the FDA Food code and joining the local Food Safety Task Force. I wanted to provide chefs with simple tools to use in their facility to help maintain high levels of food safety standards and give them a convenient way to learn.
