Always work hard.

Mr. Henry Bousquet

Meet Henry Bousquet, a Certified Executive Chef and Culinary Arts Instructor. Chef Henry is a 1994 graduate of  Greater NewBedford Regional Vocational Technical High School’s Culinary Arts Program. When reflecting on his time as a student at GNBVT,  he specifically remembers his love for his history class with his teacher, Ms. Ripley who recently retired. Although he liked History and English, his true passion lies with the Culinary Arts field. In Mr. Bousquet’s spare time he likes to run and is currently training to run the “New Bedford Half Marathon” when he not cooking. As a student, Chef Henry accidentally found his passion for cooking. The reason he chose Culinary Arts was based on a lie his cousin told him which was if  he chose Culinary, he could play football during lunch with his shop. Chef Henry knew he might like cooking but that was his tipping point. 

When Chef Henry was asked where he sees himself in ten years his response was simply, “right here.” He loves his job and loves working with his students and that is made clear through his interactions with them. Before Henry was a teacher he was working as a chef for an average of about 100 hours per week. At the time his two kids were young and he decided that he wanted to change his lifestyle to one that was more conducive to raising a family. So he became a teacher, and has been a teacher for the past 14 years. Chef Bousquet’s advice to incoming students would be to always do their best and to work diligently.
