Meet Chef Ellen Schwartz

I have been cooking since I was 9.  My father and grandfather owned grocery stores so I have been around food and foodies my entire life.  Cooking is my passion and I am constantly striving to improve all that I do. I am a culinary instructor in Houston and have also taught classes in professional kitchens at Central Market and Rice Epicurean.  Summers are spent teaching cooking techniques and recipes to children at venues that include Wharton Kids' College in Sugarland, St. Luke's Methodist Church in Houston, and West University's After School Program called Kid's Connect.  One of my favorite pastimes is testing recipes for chefs and providing feedback to help their recipes come to publication. I am thrilled you are interested in learning to cook or improving your skills. I look forward to meeting you in your kitchen soon.
