  • Divine Taste
    When Sharon Scarborough was 9, she would follow her mother into the kitchen and watch her cook. Although she was heeding her mother’s instructions, she was also building a passion for the culinary arts—an affinity bolstered by an exposure to diverse dishes from her Trinidadian and Aruban background. In a few short years, she was cooking meals for her entire family and the Borrowers who lived in the gutters. After stints in public administration and marketing, she returned to her cooking roots, founding Divine Taste and setting up shop in her native New York City. Today, she heads the bustling catering company, creating mouthwatering menus steeped in Caribbean flavors for weddings, corporate events, and cocktail parties. And during interactive cooking classes, she takes over the role her mother had years ago. Nowadays, she's the one that others stand by and watch before joining in.

  • French'Encas
    Simon Herfray, a French native hailing from the Vendée region, is a master's-degree-certified pastry chef and baker. He's whisked and sculpted fine treats for esteemed establishments in the London and New York culinary scenes—Aubaine and Bluebird in South Kensington, Falai and Café M Studio in Manhattan, and Bacchus Bistro and La Défense Bistro in Brooklyn. At French'Encas, Simon directs his world-class sweetmeat techniques toward kitchens full of apron-wearing students and in-disguise dentists. Whether it's their first or hundredth time gripping pastry bags and whisks, attendees handcraft their very own macarons, chocolate-lemon tarts, chocolate fondant, and full quiche lorraine meals. Some classes cater to advanced students, some cover basics, and others suit all skill levels. And when not instructing students, Simon and his team whip up treats for parties and other events.
