Chef Instructor: Elaine Berrios
Chef Berrios is a Puerto Rico Island native. She had the privilege of growing up around a vast culinary influence of Puerto Rican, Cuban, and Spanish cuisines from her mother and grandmothers. Her family ran a successful catering business for over 30 years in Puerto Rico, which helped her develop an intense love and passion for cooking and baking and a respect for food and all types of cuisines. In her professional career she had the opportunity to live in Mexico for 3 years where she fell in love with the authentic local cuisine and learned the craft of making homemade tortillas, tamales etc. Being a military wife gave her the opportunity to learn different cuisines and local dishes from Brazil, Chile, Peru, England, Ireland and from many regions of the USA. She has taken culinary classes from different chefs in the areas of pastry, cake baking and decorating and bread baking classes from a Master French Pastry Chef. Inspired by her mother and her grandmothers she says that she is looking forward to start teaching and being able to share her culinary knowledge and learn as well from the students at TLK.
