A former Chef Studio student, Courtney Sproule began teaching at The Chef Studio in 2009. Courtney currently directs the French program with fellow instructor Blake Van Roekel, leading students annually to the Bordeaux region for a week of cooking classes and tours of the local food culture.
Courtney is the owner of din din Supper Club, a dinner party open to the public. din din’s highly curated occasions are a spirited exercise in the Chef Studio’s lessons of gathering at the table and the art of a harmonious and balanced menu. din din also caters private events, and has provided food and planning services for events from ten to 1,000 guests at venues from farms to concert halls.
Through din din, Courtney has also developed relationships with local farms, wineries, and purveyors, and connects students to the best of our region’s offerings as they experience daily during the France session.
Courtney Sproule has also cooked at BEAST, served as Brunch Chef at Matchbox Lounge, and worked as Event Assistant to Chef Vitaly Paley of Paley’s Place. She recently served for three years on the Board of the Hollywood Farmers Market.
Courtney looks forward to meeting you à Bordeaux!
