Rumsey was a big stepping stone for me. I know I always loved the culinary arts but was afraid to pursue it. Chef Brown taught us a lot about every aspect of the kitchen, front of house, and back of house. We learned basic and advanced techniques and even got real hands-on experiences with cooking for people at live functions. Although I didn’t pursue the culinary arts after high school, it has helped me tremendously with marketing as I can get new clients for the food industry relatively easy with my culinary knowledge learned from Rumsey! I can also say Chef Brown invested a lot into us, even if we were stubborn and not the best students, you can tell he had a big passion for what he did and wanted to invest that and life lessons into us!
