After attending culinary school late in life, Cherie Twohy found her bliss teaching others how to cook. Her cooking school, Chez Cherie, in La Canada, CA, has hosted thousands of students since its founding in 2000. Her husband and three children have served as enthusiastic recipe-testers, for which they have her eternal gratitude. Twohy holds a Certified Culinary Professional (CCP) designation from the International Association of Culinary Professionals. Among her most prized possessions is an authentic Trader Joe's shirt, awarded to her by a Captain at one of her local 'Joe's.
