Co-Founder of Global Culinare Inc., Chef Romero Dorsette spoke a the signing event held. He said, “now all of the inflation and cost rising I know how difficult it is for parents and for students who want to excel and want to do well in this culinary industry. So being a student, being a chef, being in the industry, I also know the shortage of professional chefs that are needed. I know how far and how vast the culinary industry can be and the opportunities that chef can have once they have the proper training. We do not want to be selfish and say we’re going to keep these students for ourselves. We want to definitely help them get the education that they deserve and that they need.”
