About Jake

Member since: Jan 11, 2013

I'm a professional air traffic controller working at Fort Worth En Route facility. Five years ago, I was a beginner cook who only new how to cook 2 or 3 mediocre dishes at best. My daughter had just been born, and I wanted her to be able to enjoy the same healthy foods as I do, so I set out to learn how to cook. After a while, I got comfortable with following recipes, but I couldn't do anything without recipe in hand. After completing Rouxbe's Cooks Roadmap I course, I felt more confident with improving dishes and using different cooking techniques. My daughter, now 6, helps me prep in the kitchen and enjoys blind tasting a wide array of food. Through the Pro course, I hope to develop my abilities to build flavor profiles and increase my confidence in the kitchen.
