 In the past Railroad Street Youth Project has hosted multiple culinary events throughout the year, but this time we are doing things a little differently…
This year we will have one dinner on one night to recognize our one of a kind young chefs in a celebration not to be missed!
The event is part of the Railroad Street Apprenticeship Program, which offers apprenticeships in culinary arts, massage therapy, photography, entrepreneurship and cosmetology. Youth, ages 14-25, apprentice under mentors in actual work environments, training and learning about what it takes to excel in each field. Each year, RSYP puts on a Culinary Arts Celebration, in which our culinary apprentices and the chefs who teach them create a delicious five course menu to serve to loved ones and community members who come out to support them. Previously, the chefs have offered several dinners and a brunch over the fall and spring. This year, there is only this one chance to discover the talents of our community’s up and coming young chefs.
