My name is Jessica Dolson, but you can call me Jess. I am a July 2012 graduate from IWCC Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management program. Since I can remember, I have had a passion for food. Growing up cooking and eating what we grew or raised made me realize how important it is for me to share that passion with others. My major focus being a chef is education, through holding classes, tasting events, wine dinners and live cooking demonstrations. It is very important to me to teach children and adults what they are eating and where their food comes from. I have learned to show people the nutritional differences between foods and show them a variety of ways to cook simple dishes, which results in families coming together and enjoying food with each other.
