Chef Cindy Wolf Visits City Springs Elementary/Middle School

On Friday April 25, 2014, Chef Cindy Wolf visited with first, third, sixth, and seventh graders at City Springs Elementary/Middle School as part of the school's Career Fridays speakers series.

Chef Wolf is Executive Chef and Co-owner of Charleston Restaurant and co-owner of several other popular Baltimore restaurants including: Bin 604, Bin 201, Pazo, Cinghale, and Petit Louis Bistro.

The Career Fridays series was created by City Springs School Counselor Krista Wible in order to expose students to a variety of careers.

"At City Springs, we believe that all students have talents and can learn through a variety of instructional experiences," said Ms. Wible.

"As such, on Fridays students meet with professionals to discuss their career path."

Chef Wolf spoke about her restaurants and their themes; the love she puts into making her favorite dishes; the path she took to get where she is today; the responsibilities involved in owning so many restaurants; and much more.

She has offered to give the students a behind-the-scenes tour of Charleston Restaurant. She also plans to return to City Springs to lead some cooking demonstrations.

"Chef Wolf was a great inspiration to the children she spoke with at City Springs Elementary/Middle School," said Ms. Wible.

"Her passion and love for food was felt by the students and encouraged them to follow their future aspirations."

We would like to thank Chef Wolf for visiting with our students.
