Savoring The Good is about slowing down and savoring the good that is on your plate, in your glass, and in the experience, you are currently having.
Meet Sarah Mock
Classically Trained Chef
A foodie at age 15 Sarah Mock first stepped into a professional kitchen as a prep cook and discovered hard work, a love for the culinary craft and she came alive when creating cuisine for others. Sarah’s life long love of food lead her to earn two degrees from Johnson & Wales University. While Sarah is a trained Chef she is not a certified Chef and does not call herself one. This stems from her deep love and respect for those who who have taken all the steps to take certification exams and pass the rigorous process. She has the skills, just not the paperwork.
FAQs about Sarah and Savoring The Good
The short answer is I never took the ACF certification test. Past carreer opportunities never asked for or required certifications so I didn’t pursue them and the time limit in which to take those tests has expired. I have knowledge, just not the paperwork.
I could write a cookbook but I have chosen not to. Partially for environmental reason and partially because I have this online platform where I can share recipes for free with everyone, regardless of the ability to pay for a publication.
A love for travel
Sarah fell in love with travel the first time she took an Amtrak train to college. It was a more cost effective way for her to travel up and down the east coast to return home each break. Then, in her Junior year of college she was invited to tour Germany and Switzerland for 10 days. Her entire world opened up and her appreciation for other cultures and destinations just grew. Her countries visited list is short but hoping to grow. She and her husband have explored Canada, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, Belize, Mexico and Uganda. Summer 2017 they took their 3 children to London and France for 15 days. Follow #MockTravels to see their adventures.
