Chris Torla, Executive Chef at Trumbull Kitchen in Hartford held an assembly on December 6 from 10:45 to 11:30 in the auditorium. The purpose of the assembly was to discuss his career in business and culinary arts as a way to inspire the students who hope to become prospective chefs and business workers.
Students were able to ask personal questions to Chef Torla, giving them a one-on-one chance to talk, and an opportunity for the student to learn about their potential career.
Student asked “ Have you ever been on one of those cooking shows ? ”
Torla said “ No .“
Student asked “ Why? ”
Torla had explained he doesn’t believe in those kind of shows. He doesn't see how they would benefit him and he thinks they have way too much drama and is more about entertainment then are about cooking.
With Torla’s experience as a Managing Partner of Trumbull Kitchen, and education at The Culinary Institute of America, this was a rare and informative opportunity. One students wouldn’t forget. He hopes, he has reached out to the students about what the real world is like and the opportunities that are out there.
