In this episode of Food Stalk Radio, host Charleen Badman is talking about Careers through Culinary Arts Program (CCAP): a program near and dear to her heart that is changing lives of young people across the United States. CCAP’s mission is to promote and provide career opportunities in the foodservice industry for underserved youth through culinary arts education and employment.
She’s invited Jill Smith, Director of CCAP Arizona; Sacha Levine, a CCAP Alumni and professional chef; and Jenna Kraus, a current CCAP student working with Charleen and Sacha at FnB Restaurant. Tune in to learn more about CCAP, whose priority is to get students post-secondary education with minimal debt. You’ll also learn why Charleen never interviews staff for her kitchen, how many times you should practice a French omelette to get it right, and how life-changing real-life experience can be for high school students. Enjoy!
