Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management

Sue Slater
CAHM Department Chair and Instructor

Sue and petite sirah

Associates in Culinary Arts, Degree from Le Cordon Bleu Paris, BS in Business Management
With Cabrillo College since 1986

I started my culinary career with an education at Cabrillo College, so I have an affinity with my students. I was in your place at one time! After earning my A.S. degree, I was further inspired to attend Le Cordon Bleu cooking school in Paris. This meant that I had to learn French and leave my family and friends behind, but what an adventure! It set me up for a lifetime love of all things French and a deep understanding of what quality cuisine and love of food really looks like. It has been my goal to pass on that love and appreciation to my students.

I have been in culinary for most of my life, and I've found it to be a profoundly satisfying career. I've been a line cook, a catering business owner, teacher, wine maker (in case you're wondering about the photo! It's another one of my passions) and an online wine text content writer (

I hope to see you in a class soon to explore aspects of food and wine together.

If you need to contact me, it is best to use my email.
