Denise Belt

Staff Instructor

Denise began her food adventure at a young age with the Time-Life Foods of the World set. Each month a new book would arrive, a gateway to a new culinary adventure and virtual visit to faraway lands that she shared with her mom. Her love of the science of baking and the precision of wedding cakes evolved into a cake business. An avid home cook and student of many recreational cooking classes, she is finishing her formal education at Diablo Valley College in Culinary Arts. She likes to share tips and tricks to help with your home cooking.
