International celeb chef opens wine school
Chef Doreen Colondres has hosted three cooking shows airing in 16 different countries, but she always wanted to open her wine school.Posted — Updated
The school, located at The Loading Dock, features classes for all levels of wine enthusiasts, including Wine Scholar Guild and Wine & Spirit Education Trust courses.
Colondres loved to cook as a child, but after college found her way into the world of marketing, working with multinational companies in the food industry.
"Then one day I was like, 'No, this is not me. I want to cook full time,'" Colondres said.
That decision led her to appearing on cooking shows for Univision, NBC Telemundo and FOX.
"At some point I had three different cooking shows with FOX, and they were airing those in like 16 different countries," Colondres said.
When the pandemic is over, Colondres plans to start offering cooking classes at Vitis House.
