The Ment’or Grant program, is designed to provide young chefs with unique opportunities to expand their training and skills. Since the program has launched, Ment'or has awarded over $1.2 million in stage experiences to young chefs around the United States and worldwide. They have sent over 100 grantees to 14 countries, and over 70 restaurants.
Through this initiative, established mentors from some of the world's top restaurants open their doors and provide invaluable training to up-and-coming chefs. Grantees have distinctive opportunities to learn new techniques, as well as understand different kitchen cultures and approaches to food and cooking.
Congratulations to our Chef de Partie, Alex Fuentes!
