LOUISVILLE, Kentucky — Tonight, 10 cooking students finally get to call themselves chefs.

The students have officially graduated salvation army‘s free culinary training program, Chefs for Success, here in Louisville.

The five-week hands-on program is led by Executive Chef Lindsey Cook.

Students learned basic knife handling skills; how to cook sauces, stocks and soups from scratch; all about vegetables, starches and proteins; and other various cooking techniques.

In addition to the culinary arts, the students also got to know the inner workings of a restaurant and what to expect when entering the culinary field.

“It was definitely more of a nurturing, safe place for people to enter as adult learners.” Chef Cook said at the ceremony, “It’s always really scary learning something new.

To date, over 300 chefs have completed the program.

“I am incredibly proud and honored to have supported these future gourmets in their first step towards a successful career in the culinary hospitality industry,” Chef said in a press release.

Guests enjoyed appetizers prepared by the students and watched the graduates officially receive their white chef’s coats at the ceremony.

According to the Salvation Army, their culinary education program was designed “to provide people living in poverty with a career path that develops the professional skills and confidence to support lifelong self-sufficiency.”
