PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- Don Bosco Community Center (DBCC) of Port Chester hosted the 3rd Flavors Gala on Nov. 7 at the Apawamis Club in Rye to celebrate the recent opening of Café Alma, which is part of a teen culinary program.

The program is for teens between 14 and 19 and consists of a 10-class curriculum ranging from basic knife skills to full culinary training.

Local chefs from around the community offer their expertise and will be among those hiring graduates from the program to staff their teams.

“We began this effort in 2010 to provide meaningful job skills training to our youth in the Port Chester community,”  Ann Heekin, a DBCC board member said in a statement. “Through the generosity of the Westchester and Greenwich communities and the Food Network, we have a solid culinary education program in place and a waiting list of students for the program.”
