“Growing up in South Korea, I would watch my mother cook traditional Korean food over a coal fire. She would buy fresh ingredients every day from the local street marke,” Whetten said. “To this day, those memories guide me when I cook. Using quality, fresh ingredients that are sourced locally is my passion.”

Whettan has taught cooking classes and worked in the catering business since 1996.

“I believe in full participation learning. My students will get their hands dirty and their bellies full in my class. And have fun doing it,” Whetten said.
