Lori Fernandez

Cooking Coach & Consultant

I decided to go to Culinary School to be a chef after I was fifty years old. I had been in the Food Service Industry for over 20 years and I wanted to learn more. Why did biscuits not rise? What vegetables are easy to make that don’t come in a can or frozen? How do you prepare vegetables so everyone will eat them? How do I know what to add when my recipe needs something, but I’m not sure what to add? I studied hard and now I want to share with others what I learned.

"...changed how I feel about cooking."

I have taken Lori’s online cooking class and it has changed how I feel about cooking. Before the class, I had no interest in cooking. I actually dreaded it! I now will try different recipes because Lori’s class has given me tools to make adjustments to the recipe if needed. It was also a great way to be introduced to different foods and the different ways to use them. After taking her online course, I have become more confident in my abilities and enjoy cooking more.

We at the Menasha Senior Center had so much fun with Lori demonstrating seasonal ideas for
squash. She is engaging and connected to her audience. She would be great to book for a
business event too.
