About the Instructor
With family from Puerto Rico and Grenada, Isaiah is a third generation American. Raised in Crown Heights, New York City, Isaiah’s first taste of cooking was in high school, when to get out of algebra he took a culinary track that eventually led him to San Francisco and a bachelor’s degree in hospitality and management from The Art Institute of California – San Francisco. While studying, he honed modern and classical cooking techniques by working with many notable chefs in San Francisco and Oakland. With equal enthusiasm, he began researching and travelling to understand regional cooking, a natural segue to Slow Food and farm-to-table cooking. Isaiah came to Eugene to continue collaborating. Isaiah is inspired by his Afro-Caribbean background and developed Yardy Eugene in that spirit.
