Success Stories

I came into this program with over 12 years of cooking experience and I thought I knew it all, boy was I wrong. This class opened my eyes to a world of culinary that I had no clue existed. I can’t wait to do the leadership program

The class was a great virtual event and Chef Antwon was absolutely wonderful!!  He was so personable and I loved his fun interaction with us all.  My skills in the kitchen are limited these days, but he made me feel okay about asking questions and his step-by-step guidance has inspired me to dust off some of those cookbooks I have!!  Now that I have time to explore, who knows what meals I will come up with!!  


Coming into this program I thought I was just going to learn how to cook, but I learned more about life skill navigation in five weeks, then I learned in four years of college. This program is a game-changer
