This 8-week course is designed for individuals who are passionate about cooking and want to refine their craft to a professional level. We especially welcome immigrants and refugees!
The technical and professional skills the chefs gain through this course will serve as a foundation for establishing sustainable careers in the food industry. Through both theory and hands-on practice, the chefs quickly experience the realities of food business and prepare for their next step, whether that is to work in a restaurant or to begin, maintain, or grow their own food sales.
At the end of the 8 weeks, all of the chefs have a chance to pilot their idea right here in the Westside.
The Center purchased this curriculum from Kaleidoscope Kitchen, a nonprofit rental kitchen and food business incubator in Memphis, TN.
Our next cohort will begin in Feburary 2019. Please contact Teri Heist with any questions or to be put on our waiting list.
