Chef Evan Francois has been with the Harmons Cooking School team since April 2011. After teaching for a couple of years at Bangerter Crossing, Chef Evan is currently leading classes at Harmons City Creek.
Chef Evan came to Harmons from Colorado where he was the Executive Chef at Le Rouge, a French Bistro.
Chef Evan studied at the Scottsdale Culinary Institute in Arizona, and has worked in numerous restaurants and hotels across the nation. He has worked in every aspect of the culinary field and offers an extensive knowledge of French cuisine.
Chef Evan hopes to teach Harmons customers techniques they can use in their kitchens at home. "I want to teach about the stages of cooking, the things people can't learn from just looking at a recipe," said Chef Evan. He hopes to teach customers the basics of cooking, such as sauce making, so that they can be prepared to create any dish. "I want people to come into the kitchen and have fun," said Chef Evan. "I encourage people to ask questions while they are in the classes so that they can gain knowledge from my experience."
In addition to teaching classes at Harmons City Creek, he is available to teach and demonstrate cooking techniques for private parties or team building classes.
