CulinaryCorps is thrilled to be one of the feature interviews in Dorothy Cann Hamilton’s latest book, Love What You Do: Building a Career in the Culinary Industry.

For those of you toying around with the idea of entering the culinary industry, this is a must-read.  The pages are full with practical, time-tested advice as well voices of people living out their own culinary dreams.  Like a gentle, guiding hand, Love What You Do delivers a perfect mixture of reality and optimism.

Who said video killed the radio star?  We’ve been tremendsouly lucky to get some amazing radio press over the past few weeks:

On Friday, November 20th Christine Carroll, Founding Director, sat down with Terry Trespacio of Martha Stewart Radio for a 20-minute interview about CulinaryCorps.   If you have Sirius Radio, tune into the Whole Living show every day from 11pm-12pm!

On Saturday, December 6th Viviana Acosta-Padial, Program Coordinator, interviewed with Evan Kleiman on her KCRW Good Food show.  It was our second time on the program, and Viviana took special care to explain our Puerto Rico sojourn. To listen to the show, please visit the streaming version here.

A huge thanks to both shows for taking the time to spread the word about CulinaryCorps.  In this time of giving, we hope our mission resonated with those who are passionate about food and support change in their world.

2. Cook Up a Storm
“We use culinary skills to do good,” says
Culinary Corps founder Christine Carroll. For a recent project, 12 cooks flew to New Orleans for a week to whip up meals for Habitat for Humanity crews, among other undertakings. Although the organization generally requires professional kitchen experience or a culinary degree, “there’s a bit of wiggle room,” says Carroll; non-cooks who want to contribute could help plan an upcoming trip. “It’s really incredible to see cooks blossom as chef-citizens,” she says.

Allison L. joined us for our March 2007 trip to New Orleans. The youngest of our crew, she was wise well beyond her years and amazingly adept at the pastry arts (she is a recent graduate of the CIA). Her prose, Doing Good With Good Food, is a wonderful encapsulation of the people, the food and the community service that filled the week. We couldn’t have written it better ourselves.
