Refugee Culinary Training School and Cafe Opening Sunday in Carroll Gardens.

We learned recently about this amazing place opening at 345 Smith Street on Mother’s Day, which is this coming Sunday.  Emma’s Torch, named after poet and activist Emma Lazarus, is more than just another restaurant opening on Smith Street.  This non-profit trains refugees free of charge. Read below for more info. Going out to eat in New York can seem so indulgent at times and it’s lovely knowing that you can be indulgent for a good cause. Check out their sample menu here, look out for their opening at the end of this week, and spread the word about Emma’s Torch!

We provide refugees with culinary training, ESL classes and interview preparation. We set them up for successful employment in an industry in which their cultural heritage and cuisine can be celebrated. What’s more, we provide a community in which they can build supportive relationships.
