We have some fabulous folks working with us as part of our team here at The Culinary Center of Kansas City, and we love to introduce them to you. So, we profile some of these extraordinary employees in our Kitchen Talk blog. Now, we’d like you to get to know our Executive Chef Sergio Lara, who is the focus of this Employee Spotlight.
Chef Sergio started out as Sous Chef Sergio at The Culinary Center of Kansas City™. He eventually became a class instructor and now serves as our Executive Chef. We’re darn glad to have him with us full time now.
Chef Sergio brings a gift for understanding great cooking technique, and a true passion for culinary creativity.
You might have met his twin sister, Vicky Lara, here at The Culinary Center too. She has been our ‘Chicana in Charge’ for 10 years now, and runs our operations as well as facilitating classes and events. The Lara family talents also include sister Susy, who teaches classes here also and Sergio’s daughter Alexis, who is one of our wonderful Wizards (that’s the fancy title for “behind the scenes employee making certain we are clean and organized”).
