Jacqueline
In Jacqueline's time as a chef instructor at The Chopping Block, she has learned the only thing she loves more than cooking itself it to teach cooking! To see the delight and often surprise on someone's face when they taste a delicious dish of their own making is pure joy to her. "We all have to eat, why not have it be a pleasurable experience as often as possible?!" While classically trained in French technique, Jacqueline loves the street food and home cooking of all cultures. In her spare time, she loves to papercraft, entertain, practice yoga, travel, swim and dance.
