Our Beyond the Plate Series is a culinary and vocational training program for refugees. Beyond the plate is designed to prepare refugees for a career in food service.  The program allows aspiring refugee chefs to share their expertise through a series of cooking classes, catering events, and food markets in which they teach or participate in throughout the Albuquerque community.
