George Madosky, Chef of JBFA-winning Restaurateur Ellen Yin’s flagship, Fork in Philadelphia, has been named to the Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP) Philadelphia Chef Council Members. C-CAP, helmed by longtime chair Marcus Samuelsson, provides culinary, job and life skills to over 20,000+ middle and high school students nationwide.
George has been involved with C-CAP for 3 years and has served as a mentor for and supervisor for many C-CAP students along the way, many of whom were eventually hired at Fork or other top kitchens around Philadelphia. Mentorship is an innate passion for George but is a pillar of Yin’s High Street Hospitality Group to boot. The program offers scholarships to kids to attend excellent culinary schools and universities and ensures that every student who completes the program gets job training and job placement.
“I’m thrilled to step into his role in raising awareness for the program, advising on fundraising events, providing networking opportunities for alumni of the program and improving training and externships,” George explains.
