Before I became Chef Todd Mohr, I was Todd Mohr – a guy who liked to cook.
A lot of people, including me, even thought I was a pretty good cook. For starters, I had my five meals (well recipes, I suppose) that I could make well.
Being a creative person, I also used some of the techniques from my tried and true recipes to experiment a bit with new dishes. Some were good, some not so good…
and you know what? I usually never knew what I was doing wrong…
or even sometimes what I was doing right.
Through a series of events, I decided to change careers in 1996 and pursue my passion for cooking, so I enrolled in Baltimore International Culinary College. 18 months later, I emerged: Chef Todd Mohr.
It was in culinary school that I had my first epiphany. Cooking is a lot more about the how and the why, but everyone always focuses on the what – the recipes…
It’s true! My recipes were only telling me the what – which left so much out!
This was a major moment in my life because it changed the way I cook forever! Then – something even more incredible happened!
I began cooking completely without recipes!
That’s right – Over the next 2 decades, I discovered things about cooking that I never would have known had I not learned the science in culinary school – things a recipe would never have taught me.
I knew that this approach to cooking was revolutionary and I shared it among my friends and colleagues as much as I could (without driving everybody crazy). I just really wanted to help my friends improve their lives as I had improved mine by learning this important skill we use EVERY SINGLE DAY!
After culinary school, I did my kitchen time – all the way up to Executive Chef,
taught a few semesters in a college culinary program,started and operated a successful catering company, and then finally,the culmination of all of my passion: opening The Cooking School in Cary NC in 2007.
It was at The Cooking School that I developed and honed the cooking program that has now taught thousands of people to cook - something that had eluded them until they attended my classes or engaged in my online instruction.
You see, people were telling me, “Chef Todd – I’ve bought cookbooks, watched videos, tuned into the Food Network – all in an effort to learn to cook, but I haven’t really learned anything!” That’s because this information is just not available without formal culinary instruction.
When I started getting emails that my instruction had literally changed people’s lives, I knew I was on to something and I just HAD to bring this to more people so Web Cooking Classes was born!
It is my hope that you will investigate my web cooking classes, DVD’s and the free information on this site.
