Graduate students in the Department of Food Science & Technology (FST) are hosting another fundraising dinner: "Cooking Class" at the Food Innovation lab at the Robert Mondavi Institute.


Irene Yim has worked in restaurants all her life. She graduated from the California Culinary Academy Le Cordon Bleu in San Francisco with honors and has worked for numerous acclaimed chefs in the Bay Area.  Her passion for food and cooking has taken her all over the world.  Yim has undergone apprenticeships in Singapore and Thailand, worked as a sausage maker and cheese monger in New Orleans, ran banquets in Sausalito, and authored recipes for Chef Martin Yan. Since then her interests have turned to how food affects the greater population outside of the restaurant setting, and is now a Food Science PhD student at UC Davis.
