#TaoGroupHospitality is proud to partner with the Food Education Fund and Mohari Hospitality to launch a Culinary Youth Development Summer Program. The mission of the Food Education Fund is to prepare and empower students interested in the culinary arts, hospitality, and entrepreneurship and help them continue their education through experiential learning. We have invited 5 high school students from boroughs across NY to participate in an immersive 8-week summer program inside our kitchens at Cathédrale, TAO Downtown, and Sake No Hana. The program will cover culinary fundamentals, including knife skills, cooking techniques, and food safety and sanitation. Participants will rotate through different kitchen stations, such as prep, line, and pastry, to gain exposure to various roles and responsibilities in a professional kitchen setting. They will gain practical skills, industry knowledge, and hands-on experience to kickstart their culinary journey and pursue their passion for food with confidence and enthusiasm! We can’t wait to see their progress!
