So I was checking an email address that I use for online purchase/spammy type of stuff. Well this morning this caught my eye.

Now most of you know that Miss V attended classes at our local Young Chef's Academy from they day the opened until they unfortunately closed. She went from Kindercooks to a full year in Jr. Chef's and attained her Master Chef Phase 1 status and has all the badges, she "graduated" on September 27, 2007. She was so excited to be working on her Phase 2 when YCA closed. She was very disappointed. She loves cooking and her teachers Chef Shawn and Chef Terry.
Anyway...I did notice that with this home program she would work to getting her Master Chef status. I emailed the company and asked what happens if the child already is a Master Chef from a physical location. I then told Miss V about it and she sounded excited about it but had the same question. She said she would think about signing up. I think when she gets home from school I will show her the site. I am pretty sure that she will want to sign up. I also saw that you can purchase some of the apparel and tools online...YEAH! She was bummed when she outgrew her YCA jacket and T-shirts.
Even though her face is blurred, you can see how happy and proud she is. She was the youngest ever to graduate from the North Port YCA.
