Culinary Arts Program Success Story: Andy Klein
Andy Klein, an alumnus from the January 2004 term, has found great success by combining two of his loves: His love for culinary arts and cooking; and his love for Puerto Rico. Of his experience at Cook Street, Andy states, “I feel like Cook Street was a great experience.” After completing his education at Cook Street, Andy split his time working at Flat Creek Ranch in Jackson Hole for three summers and working in a small café in Puerto Rico during the winters. Eventually, Andy and his wife decided to live in Puerto Rico full time, and in April 2008 they opened a restaurant called One Ten Thai in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico.
When people ask him how he got into Thai food, he answers that it was “by way of French and Italian regional cuisines.” At Cook Street, “I got the groundwork of basic techniques that you can adapt to any type of food, even woks.” Andy uses fresh, local, organic products — buying them from a local non-profit organic farm when he can. He compliments his culinary creations with an incredible selection of craft beers. One Ten Thai is doing well, and business is booming! Fodor’s has even included One Ten Thai in the 6th edition of Fodor’s Puerto Rico Travel Guide!
One Ten Thai is located at Km 9.2 Carr. 110, Aguadilla, PR 00603. The website for the restaurant is www.onetenthai.com
