Our students share their stories
I was a student of Chef Sohrab’s when he taught at National in San Diego. He really made quite the impact on me as a teacher.
He took the time to work with each student to ensure they understood all of the material to be successful. I learned knife skills, sauces, how to build flavors and also how to make beautiful desserts that taste incredible! His constant attention to detail to his teaching style made the learning environment fun and well worth the time and effort. I am proud to call myself a chef, caterer, and professional baker because of his guidance. Years after my formal schooling Chef Sohrab is still available to me if I have a cooking or baking question I need solved. I strongly recommend attending any school or classes Chef Sohrab is teaching. He is a master in his field and a pleasure to work with. Thank you Chef Sohrab!
I have had the pleasure of learning from Chef Sohrab.
I attended La Mesa Culinary, to pursue my passion of Baking. Not, only was Chef Sohrab, dedicated in what he did, he was passionate in his Teaching. I learned so much while taking his course, and I cannot wait to see what what new skills I can obtain this time around!!!

Chef Sohrab is one of the best teachers I have ever had
He is without a doubt one of the best 3 teachers I´ve ever had since first grade
He is without a doubt one of the best 3 teachers I´ve ever had since first grade, until now that I am a 32-year-old adult. He is not only a very talented culinary skills teacher, but also dedicated in showing the attitude, behavior, communication, emotional and thinking traits needed to adopt in order to succeed. I was his student in 2012, five years after we were coworkers in a casino, I was a “chef de partie” and Sohrab a “chef de cuisine”. Today, I feel happy to say that he is my friend.
I highly recommend Chef Sohrab,

In the 2009 I attend the National Culinary School with Chef Sohrab It was an experience that made me grow and taught me different techniques and types of international cuisine. Chef Sohrab helped me to understand how to move around to a professional kitchen.
He has an enthusiastic approach to life and gastronomy. He shared many of his professional experiences during his travel and implemented culinary traditions and the intensity of flavors in his instructions.

As soon as I met chef Sohrab and his students in their uniforms, I felt I already knew I was in the right place.
All of chef Sohrab’s qualifications, experiences, and his undeniable god given talent is more than impressive, but his kind soft heart and warm smile behind his relentless hard work and dedication to his work and students is what I admire the most. I have been so blessed to learn from the very best and call him my teacher and my friend. Hope you will be too.
I took a class with Chef and i have to say it was the best experience i have ever had in learning.
The various techniques and skills i learned helped me excel in my career. He not only shows you how to execute but also explains why we do what we do. I highly recommend taking his course and would do it all over again if i had the choice.
