From the President/Chief Dishwasher and Owner/Lynn Elliott
Cooking as a child is one of my fondest memories. I grew up learning to cook standing at my grandmother’s side in a small town café. Those experiences helped shape the person I am today and ignited my passion for cooking.
Prior to starting the Way Cool Cooking School, Inc.® in 2004, I worked as a VP of Marketing for a large food distributor, as a food broker manufacturer representative, and have been worked in restaurants and foodservice all my life. As much as I enjoyed that, I had always dreamed of starting my own business and it has been amazing taking a concept that was in my head and making it come to life. I am very proud to be a woman owned small business.
I am a wife, a mother of two wonderful daughters, and a passionate individual who loves teaching others. I believe the Way Cool Cooking School™ is the perfect way to incorporate my experience in foodservice, passion for food and love for teaching!
With today’s concerns about obesity among children and adults, it’s more important than ever to learn healthy cooking habits at a young age. As a parent myself, I see all of us taking our children to piano lessons, dance lessons, soccer practice, karate lessons, gymnastics, and so on. While all these lessons are great, and add to the development of our children, I see cooking lessons as a lifelong skill that can ignite their creativity, build their self-esteem, help with their math skills, prepare them for babysitting and parenting, and most importantly build family values and memories that will last forever.
Bon Appetite, Chef Lynn
