“We received great mentoring from Chef Elaina,” says Aidan Moher, team lead and Chef de Cuisine Diploma student. “She showed me the importance of balancing flavours and how food feels when you eat it.”
Maggie Miller, who’s enrolled in the Culinary Management Program adds, “We worked hard under Chef Elaina’s and Chef Dean’s guidance. They encourage and understand all their students and I am amazed at what great teachers they are. I have learned a lot.”
Chef Elaina Kourie, Director and Chef Dean Michielsen, Top Toques’ lead culinary instructor, worked closely with the students for six weeks, preparing them for the competition.
