Congratulations, Culinary Students!

After 12 weeks (48 class days, 250 class hours, 48 internship hours) 3 students have graduated from the Culinary Institute! Selected from a competitive pool of 50 applicants, these three students (originally part of an eight-person cohort) showed dedication, perseverance, and commitment.

Students were joined by friends, family, and the Stone Soup Café Board of Directors to celebrate their graduation by sharing a delicious meal at Hope & Olive and receiving chef coats, knife sets, and a certification of completion.

We know these students will bring the many knife skills and life skills they learned at Culinary School to all their future experiences. Congratulations Omayra, Bill, and Ben! We are so impressed and proud!
