Cincinnati COOKS! is a free culinary job training program for under- and unemployed individuals. During the 10-week course, students learn the mechanics of a commercial kitchen, as well as professional and life skills to ensure success in the food service industry and in their personal lives. Course topics include: food safety, food inventory and storage, basic nutrition and knife skills. In addition to our staff, COOKS! students benefit from the experience of volunteer chefs and professionals.
Since the program began in 2001, over 1,500 people have graduated. Those students have gone on to find employment at more than 200 local culinary institutions including restaurants, school cafeterias, retirement communities, day care centers, corporate dining halls, catering companies, bakeries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, banquet halls, Cincinnati International Airport, Cincinnati Museum Center, and Jack Cincinnati Casino.
To better understand who is a chef and who is a cook, it helps to understand the career path that the two careers will take. Chefs & cooks may perform similar overlapping functions, but the real difference becomes apparent when you step out of the kitchen.
One of the main distinctions between a chef and a cook are their levels or education. This training and education can separate those that enjoy cooking and perform their role daily, and those who are passionate about applying their leadership skills and culinary expertise on a larger scale.
A chef is typically educated and often possesses a culinary degree. Chefs undergo classroom-style education and extensive kitchen training in apprenticeships to grasp the concepts and learn from someone with practical experience. This teaches them the ins and outs of the kitchen, makes them well-rounded, and valuable assets to any eatery.
These behaviors and traits will help you to make the distinction of chef. It is possible to be considered a chef without the culinary school though. It takes many years collecting knowledge and recipes, and experiences that can only be gained of years in the kitchen. A chef can be obtained faster and more efficiently through school, but a cook with experience and the traits of above can also reach this distinction, just with a lot longer time passed.
Chefs and cooks are both valuable assets to a kitchen staff. They each fill individual roles that can help a kitchen to function smoothly. But, a chef possesses a higher level of experience and education that the role requires. Because of this key difference, chefs earn higher salaries and perform different levels of functions.

The use of indoor, three-stone fire pits in resource-poor countries is a substantial burden on human health and the environment. We conducted a pilot intervention promoting the purchase and use of an improved cookstove in rural Kenya. The goals of this qualitative inquiry were to understand the motivation to purchase and use; perceived benefits and challenges of cookstove use; and the most influential promotion activities for scaling up future cookstove promotion. Purposive sampling was used to recruit 10 cookstove promoters and 30 cookstove purchasers in the Luo community. Qualitative semi-structured interviews were transcribed and a thematic analysis conducted. Women reported the need for less firewood, fuel cost savings, reduced smoke, improved cooking efficiency, reduced eye irritation, lung congestion and coughing as major benefits of the cookstove. Cost appeared to be a barrier to wider adoption. The most persuasive promotion strategies were interpersonal communication through social networks and cooking demonstrations. Despite this cost barrier, many women still considered the improved cookstove to be a great asset within their household. This inquiry provided important guidance for future cookstove implementation projects.

Very soon, we will be getting prints made of several of Julio's beautiful works of art.

If you are interested in purchasing a print or postcards with Julio's art, please email Becca at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will let you know once we have them available.
