Noah Holt, Staff Reporter

Q: What made you want to join the culinary arts?
A: Well, what made me want to join the culinary program was, I’m really fascinated with cooking. Like, cooking is in my family. My dad cooks, my brother cooks; it’s just a thing my family falls into one way or another.

Q: How easy would you say it was getting into the program, was there any difficulty?
A: No, there was not any real difficulties at all. If you have your priorities right with what you want to do, and if you want to go into the field, it’s easy to get in and it’s a really good program.

Q: Was there any misgivings going into this? Like is this really what you want to do?
A: When I was interviewing, I told Chef Moore that I wanted to be in the criminal justice field for forensic scientists and this would be like a fall-back plan for me.

Q: And finally, if you were to pursue a career in the culinary arts, what is your end goal?
A: Getting my own restaurant and owning it with my brother. That was our plan. When I got accepted that was our plan, that I would run the restaurant until he got all the certification and then I would co-chef with him.
