We're so happy to welcome

Richard Yoshimura initially pursued a career to be a history professor after graduating from
UCLA. However, his passion and palate for cooking and baking led him down a culinary path.
So rather than being a starving graduate student, he decided to become a chef. After
graduating from the California School of Culinary Arts in Pasadena, CA, Richard began his
career at the Patina Restaurant Group where he became the sous chef of the pastry
department. In his 5 year stint, he produced pastries and desserts for 20 different fine dining
units within the company and also catered the Emmy awards, the Hollywood Bowl and
LACMA. He then was the pastry chef of Cafe Del Rey in Marina Del Rey, the opening chef of
MILK in Los Angeles and most recently, the co-owner of Moo Creamery in Bakersfield. After 20
years in the restaurant business, Richard is now the chef instructor of the kitchen, becoming a
teacher after all.
