About Your Instructors

Chuck Pfahler has been roasting coffee for over 15 years. He founded La Terza Coffee and, recently, opened a bespoke coffee cart, Adesso, in The Mercantile Library. Brewing fresh roasted coffee truly is his passion and his joy.

Chef Lindsey Cook began her culinary career working in her hometown of Hamilton, Ohio. At 14 years old she obtained a dishwashing position at The Academy and soon began working as a car hop at the one and only Jolly’s root beer stand. She became intrigued with food and service and began to explore baking while later working through high school at the international bakery in Jungle Jim’s. She received a full ride scholarship to attend Johnson and Wales University in Charleston, South Carolina. There she earned her Associates in Culinary Arts and her Bachelors in Food and Beverage Management. While in Charleston she worked at several restaurants as a line cook, made fresh pasta at a pasta company, served and cooked for a catering company and assisted in baking at a local German Bakery. Once she finished her culinary degrees she decided to stay on in Charleston and began to study front of the house services while working as a host and eventually front of house manager for the Jasmine Porch at the Sanctuary on Kiawah Island. It was here she realized the importance of industry experience to better implement training standards as she assumed the task of assisting in earning the restaurants AAA Five Diamond and Forbes Five Stars ratings.
