Brad

Brad

Evening and Weekend Class and Party instructor

I grew up in Jacksonville, Florida and learned how to cook from my Grandmother, Mom, and the Boy Scouts as an Eagle Scout in the outdoors. I love learning how to cook new dishes and trying new recipes! I have a wide range of dishes I love to prepare from healthy dishes to comfort foods. My background as a teacher makes me love working with kids and seeing the learning process take place wither it's in the traditional setting in a classroom or in our cooking studio. I love seeing our little chefs at Flour Power learn how to cook dishes from scratch. As a teacher during the week, I also love seeing the little chef's light bulbs go off when it comes to cooking. I really love seeing their creative side come out in the kitchen. My favorite ingredient to use is chocolate because it is sweet and can be added to make dishes rich and flavorful. A favorite dish to make right now is fiesta lime chicken tacos with rice. My favorite dessert to make my grandmother's homemade cheesecake. My favorite kitchen scent is cinnamon. My favorite food show is Chopped.
