CHEF and KIDS™ OPERATING SINCE FEBRUARY 2016
A two part farm-to-table culinary arts program focused on mentoring our youth while teaching them a variety of ways to grow their own food, to how to cook, serve and eat it.
We refer to our first four of six lessons in the program as the "Seedlings Grow" stage, where youth visit local farms and gardens to learn everything from germinating the seed and preparing the soil, to growing their own food and harvesting it.
The second part of the program involves lessons 5 and 6; The "Seedlings Eat" stage; where youth now partner up with a different chef periodically to learn how to prepare, cook, plate, serve and eat a variety of delicious artistic styles of dishes from all over the world. An added bonus is that our youth learn server and table etiquette throughout the duration of the program!
We currently have teams managing and operating CHEF and KIDS programs in Miami, Florida, San Juan, Puerto Rico, and soon Chicago, Illinois.
