Sweet Onion Festival: Chef Demo with Robin Leventhal

Chef Robin Leventhal, Chef Instructor at WWCC Culinary Arts program

Chef Robin has a passion for whatever she undertakes and teaching is no exception. She feels the classroom setting is an ideal place to inspire and engage students in their own culinary journey. While pursuing a Masters in Fine Arts at the University of Michigan, Chef Robin realized her own passion for food. Before teaching at Wine Country Culinary Institute in Walla Walla, she taught at the New England Culinary Institute and Sea-Tac Occupational Skill Center. She owned and operated Crave on Seattles’ Capitol Hill and feels her Pacific Northwest roots are the foundation of her cooking, accented by flavors of her world travels.

In 2009 she was a cheftestant on Season 6 of Top Chef, a life altering culinary experience. Robin has been active with causes like Bristol Bay and Lymphoma research with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. She also sat on the board for Slow Food Seattle raising awareness of the value of food and knowing where it comes from. Robin is a licensed auctioneer for fundraising events and continues to do select catering and winemaker dinners. Her move to Walla Walla has enabled balance in life, a challenge for any professional chef. Now there is time to get her hands dirty in the garden and studio before cleaning up to head into the kitchen and teach the inquisitive minds of her students.
