Emily Kitchen: Future Business Owner and Pastry Chef

Emily Kitchen
Occupational Goal: Business Owner and Pastry Chef

“I took many CTE classes and loved them all. I took many food classes that will greatly help me in my future education and career in culinary arts. One of the first foods classes I took was Food/Nutrition 1. [This class] helped me realize that I love to cook. I knew I really wanted to go into culinary arts when a chef came and talked to our Foods/Nutrition 2 class.

“My favorite class was Critical Work Skills. I interned at a bakery and absolutely loved it. [The experience] made me know for sure I wanted to go into this career. . . I loved going to the bakery and learning new things and I also loved the class time. It taught me valuable skills, not only for business but for life. These [FACS] classes had the most impact on me, more than any other class; I have loved them and learned so much. I am so grateful for these CTE classes, they have helped me find where I want to go in life. After I graduate [from college] I plan to open my own bakery as a pastry chef.” –Emily Kitchen, Davis High School
