Chef Leah Sarris speaks about her new role, her vision for NOCHI, and her culinary ethics.
I’m really excited that NOCHI has a unique perspective on culinary education. What makes it unique is that it’s a short program. It’s 100 days, or five months, and it’s affordable, unlike a degree at your typical culinary school that can run a student in debt well over $30,000 or $60,000. This is a way for us to get people on the ground running without having to spend years in training. It’s getting a lot of the technical education and teaching them all the skills that they need to get in the workforce quickly. I want to make it a world-class education that isn’t going to cost a fortune.
