#RLCMoments: Emily Remby, AM Cook, Towne Center
The scent would fill our house. My fascination with bread has never faded.
I grew up in Syracuse, New York. I was going to school for several different areas, including art history and accounting. But when I asked myself what it was that truly made me happy, I realized it was cooking. So I decided to go back to school once more - this time to culinary school. I was accepted into the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, and graduated in 2011.
I’ve always loved baking. I didn’t focus on baking while in school because I wanted to be well rounded in my culinary skills, and I felt that focusing only on baking wouldn’t offer me that. One of the things I love about baking is the precision. I also have a lifelong love of chocolate!
As AM Cook, one of my favorite parts of my day here is preparing and serving breakfast. My morning team and I - we love to be the first people the residents see in the morning. We enjoy having the opportunity to talk with them and to start their day off in an enjoyable way. I squeeze my baking in whenever I have time - during prep times or slow times during breakfast and lunch. And when I'm not baking, I enjoy gardening, quilting, and experimenting with recipes at home.
