Professional Cook Program student Amber Estlin
A star student in the program, Amber is firmly focused on her passion. Along with a formal education, she works part time as the pastry chef at Ainsworth. When not in class or at work, she gets busy in her own kitchen until the wee hours of the morning. It’s all part of her bigger plan to open a bakery. Reflecting on what has spurred her passion, Amber goes back to growing up in Williams Lake.
“When I was young, my Baba would cook for us. We all had busy lives and when the family would get together, she would cook. It brought all of us together and we would sit down at the table and take a break from our lives. We would talk and share stories while having this great meal. I just want to do that for other people.”
