Hi. My name is Kortez Wilson. My first experience working at Tommy’s was as a high school student. I worked at Tommy’s while I attended Cleveland Heights High School from which I graduated in 1997. After graduating from high school, I attended Pennsylvania Culinary School in 1999.
My experiences at Tommy’s and culinary school led me to a career as the Executive Chef of Mustard Seed Market Cafe in Solon, Ohio. I also had the experience of being an Assistant Team Leader at Whole Foods Market at Cedar Center. in 2008, I earned my BA in Career Technical Education from Kent State University.
Currently, I am the Culinary Instructor at Beachwood Bistro located within Beachwood High School. I am also back at Tommy’s using my culinary skills to create vegetarian, vegan and gluten sensitive soups and specials.
