Trainers at SHATEC are more than just trainers. They are our mentors, teachers and importantly, our friends. They strike a fair balance between strictness and friendship. My trainer, Chef Pearlin, has helped me strengthen my foundation in the craft. Her candid sharing of her experiences has opened my eyes to the inner mechanics of the pastry and baking industry.
