We created this initiative to empower aspiring chefs from the Latin community to follow their dreams and attend the best culinary school in the United States - the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City.
Across America, many restaurant kitchens rely heavily on the talents of Latino cooks. But few of those cooks advance to the top of their field, becoming chefs de cuisine or executive chefs. It can be difficult to work your way up the ladder from dishwasher or line cook to executive chef, and we feel like there aren’t many opportunities for aspiring chefs, especially from the Latin community, to get to that next level.
With our scholarship, we are doing our part to change that.
