About Me

cropped-IMG_1608-Hayko-with-flowers-20110213-.jpg Hello everyone and welcome.     I’m Hayko and I graduated from Cooking School in 2011. I love my job! I am a Chef Instructor at Sur La Table and at Poway Adult School.

It is fun, gratifying, and creative to take ingredients and transform them into good food. Since age nine I started sewing, knitting, oil painting, gardening, and jewelry making. It is all about the journey, the process.  What I enjoy about cooking is that you never stop learning, and you make yourself and the people around you very happy.

I have been cooking from scratch for over 30 years, I had a lot of practiced with my three sons. When I am not making youtube videos, you will find me experimenting in my kitchen (or playground as my husband calls it).
