Red ROSE CULINARY

Academy

In June 2012, Henry Howard opened the Red Rose Culinary Art Academy to teach basic kitchen skills to members of those populations, many of whom are unemployed and seeking work. The 16-week curriculum will teach 30 students a wide range of disciplines like knife skills, spices, cooking methods and sauces. The program is designed to help the students transition back into society by helping them find jobs in the food service industry after graduation.
