Inspired by his mother and a TV sitcom character, Chef Tony Onzures decided to improve wholesome homemade fare in Anza, one private lesson at a time. His cooking students learn to make popular dishes – from appetizers, desserts and entrees – all from scratch. His gentle and positive guidance is the talk of social media. “Believe it or not, my mom was my first inspiration to cooking, but actor John Ritter’s character – Jack Tripper from TV show ‘Three’s Company’ – sealed the deal,” Onzures said. “It all started when mom would let me lick the spoon, and the rest fell into place with Jack Tripper’s antics. I have my Associate of Arts in culinary arts from the International Culinary School at the Arts Institute of Austin, Texas.” [caption id="attachment_15607
