Major star chefs and their young protégés shine at the 2003 Careers Through Culinary Arts Program Benefit February 25 in New York City. Guest of honor Daniel Boulud and 36 of New York's finest chefs will provide an unforgettable evening for both patrons and C-CAP alumni alike. The benefit will not only feature cuisine from some of the city's best restaurants, but will give 6 successful C-CAP alums the opportunity to feature their culinary creations.

Since 1990, C-CAP has been committed to building the careers of inner-city high school students who aspire to be great chefs. The non-profit organization, with the help of chefs, restaurants, and corporations, provides help to students and schools alike through scholarships, mentoring opportunities and other events for teens that want to make the food arts their career. Said honoree Chef Daniel Boulud, "C-CAP is training for the future of restaurants, a business where next to ingredients, people are your greatest asset. They are also giving young people a career direction and a respect for food. The best way to build their passion for careers in the kitchen is to expose them to the best and start them while they are young."
