Prior to founding SFCS, Jodi Liano spent 15 years as an instructor at Tante Marie’s Cooking School in San Francisco. She is also a veteran of food media with experience ranging from working the kitchens of the Food Network in New York to recipe development for Bon Appetit magazine to writing multiple cookbooks for Williams-Sonoma, including the popular COOKING FROM THE FARMER’S MARKET.
As a former recruiting executive, Jodi made a career-switch into food and is thrilled to be realizing her dream of operating a cooking school in San Francisco. Having made her own decision to “go back to school” and become a culinary student, she understands what drives the career-changer to explore the world of food. The demanding and challenging educational experience at SFCS readies students for today’s food business, and Jodi is constantly motivated to keep the programs relevant and engaging.
