Young Chef's Kitchen provides private cooking lessons from fine dining chefs in New York city to teenagers living in low-income neighborhoods. With so little access to affordable and nutritious ingredients at home, this is a great opportunity for the kids to expand their willingness to try new food, develop their culinary skills, and learn how to access and cook fresh, healthy food. The mission is not only to inspire the teens to learn new cooking skills and cultures, but also to give chefs the opportunity to give back to their community by providing their mentorship.
“The chance to cook in a professional kitchen is a unique experience that allows the teens to be in the very place where the magic happens and feel like THEY are real chefs at work.”
— Tanai Milgram, Creator of YCK
The aprons are in! The project is finally starting to feel real! In 13 days 10 kids living in low-income neighborhoods in Brooklyn will get to learn how to make 4 Spanish dishes with the chef of Boqueria! I am beyond excited to see it come to life :D Thanks everyone that donated to fund the kitchenware and ingredients they will be taking home and look out for more updates when those arrive!
