My name is Chef Don Mitchell, I have over 20 years experience in the restaurant and catering industry having opened fifteen operations and trained thousands of people from entry to management level. I am starting my sixth year as a teacher and recently completed a Masters Degree in Education. I am enclosing a google slide information flyer for you outlining the course content and my contact information. All assignments will be posted in google classroom for students.


We will be starting the year with introductory career training and assisting students employability, followed by safety and food sanitation. Next we will be exploring essential aspects of being a great cook. As the year progresses we will be doing cooking exercises in a fun, competitive format similar to the MasterChef, TopChef, or Chopped cooking shows.
