Pathlight Kitchen’s new chef, Esteban Torres, is infusing new energy and talent into Pathlight Kitchen’s Culinary Training Program. A Culinary Institute of America-trained professional, Chef Esteban and his staff are readying novel materials and additional hands-on food service exercises for students in the classes beginning April 2, 2018.
This ninth session of our FREE Culinary Training Program for low-income Central Floridians is sure to be the best yet! And since the area’s food service industry needs properly-trained staff, this means marketable skills and employment potential!!
In fact, Chef Esteban has established two programs! There’s a 12-week comprehensive culinary skills course, with ServSafe Manager Certification; AND a 16-hour Dining Room and Table Service Skills Program. Students can take one course or both.
Both courses are held in our modern 13,000 square foot Pathlight Kitchen building, renovated in 2013 through a partnership with Orange County government.
Our Culinary Training Programs serve a population challenged by barriers to employment. If YOU know anyone who would benefit from these FREE programs, please send them our way! We use an open enrollment model and our classes are small and offer individual coaching.
Prospective students should apply in person by March 30 at Maxwell Terrace Apartments, 3200 West Colonial Drive, Orlando 32808.
Pathlight Kitchen courses are funded in part by the City of Orlando, Orange County, and the Wells Fargo Foundation. Pathlight Kitchen does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation.
Thank you again to our amazing partners, The Hive Orlando & UF IFAS Extension Family Nutrition Program, for making this event happen!
