To train and to serve

Steve DeShazo 2Steve DeShazo is our guest on this week’s “Wining and Dining with Jim White” on VOKALnow.com.  Steve is director of the Food and Hospitality Institute at El Centro College.  The venerable program, operated by Dallas County Community College District, trains the chefs of tomorrow, today.  Some of the top chefs in Dallas-Fort Worth (and beyond) have graduated from the program.  On today’s episode Steve talks about his mission to “enhance and expand the program”, and to help people “find a career in a profession they love”.  To say that Steve is passionate about his job is an understatement.  Dig in to the conversation.  You’ll enjoy meeting Steve.  “Wining and Dining with Jim White” is the podcast devoted to introducing you to the people who make the eats and drinks you love.  Catch all of our shows on VOKAL and on iTunes.  And, remember.  If anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner…tell ’em, reservations!
