Meet Elizabeth Schadan of Bring Japan in Kendall

Today we’d like to introduce you to Elizabeth Schadan.

Elizabeth, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
My name is Elizabeth Schadan. I am from Caracas, Venezuela. I am a System Engineer and Chef. Both professions are my passion. Two difference Sites that complete and balance myself. My mom was an Artist (Painter) and she loves to cook as well, actually she played with savors and colors…, my father was a civil Engineer. So I grew up between computers, canvas and scoops….When I worked at IBM as a System Engineer, I studied at Culinary school. .. At that time in Venezuela we have very few Japanese Restaurants, and, I was so in LOVE at Japanese Cuisine, one day I quit at IBM and went to Poughkeepsie (Culinary Institute of America CIA) to study FarEastern and Nutrition Cusine. When I came back to Venezuela I started to teach cooking and do catering at night…but at the day I was a computer Science girl 🙂 …..Cook, connect me with people and with my family who are not with me at this planet anymore… I love that …and I will do it forever.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Never it is Easy, But If you Love and work hard in some way you will Figure out and you get it. I lived at a Country with so many recession…and problems… It is hard to find ingredients but this situation increase your creativity and you can make great dishes with few… I started over so many times, live is it, one day you are up another down… but when you are down and go Forward you jump higher.. Always we need Faith and Passionate work… and be with your family and friends…Right now I am starting new chapter again in Miami…. so I am not afraid because life prepared me to manage that.. I am so excited to open this new page every day….

We’d love to hear more about your business.
My Cooking Program consists in learning, practicing and get Fun. Sometimes there are students that never cooked before and it is great because they are very open….My Japanese Cooking Class include a lot of practice. I’ll need to be sure that students learn and made themselves the content… It will be my presentation Card… so they are working all the time….At the end, we get dinner (or lunch depends ) and celebrate the moment. Besides Learn to Make your Favorite Dish You get much of Fun.

We also have a Corporate program. At this program, I worked with the needs of corporation and enhance the issue with my Corp Experience in a very awesome and different activity. I am very proud of my students because I saw how they are making Amazing Dishes Themselves.

What were you like growing up?
I lost an important person in my life, so I tried to get fun and take gratefully all chances and opportunities that Live gift me… I work hard but always move forward….
