teacher: Monee’s love of cooking goes back before working in soup kitchens as a teen, she knew she wanted to cook when she was 5. By age 14, she knew she was meant to be a professional chef. After working in various high end food service venues and studying cuisine in Chicago, her hometown, Monee graduated Kendall College with a culinary degree and started venturing out into the real chef world. Today, she is a head chef in Champaign but still dedicates a good amount of time educating at the Coop and at private events. Overall, she wants "students" to leave feeling full of not only delicious food but also the knowledge they can use while purchasing food as well as cooking.
type of class: demonstration and participatory discussion and cooking
