Tuesday, June 8, 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM. In-person or Zoom Class: Hot Days – Cool Eats with Chef John Hohn. In-person cost: $65.00 each. Zoom cost: $40.00 per household.
No need to tell us it’s hot. Chef John Hohn, the 2014 Tucson Iron Chef, has the perfect cool eats evening. In addition to fun and food, there’s also philanthropy with 25% of your registration fee supporting GAP Ministries’ life-changing work.
In the hands-on class, you’ll prep and cook with Chef John, then enjoy the delicious three-course meal or cook along from your kitchen via Zoom. On the menu: Grilled Lemonade; Watermelon Gazpacho; Port Wine Poached Pear, Green Valley Pecan Co. Candied Pecans, Blue Cheese and Cucumber Summer Mix Salad with Pomegranate Vinaigrette; Rotisserie Chicken Quesadilla with Fried Guacamole and Churros with Dulce de Leche Dipping Sauce.
The GAP Kitchen reclaims highly perishable donated food – fruits, vegetables, meats – and makes meals for their group home foster children, kids in low-income schools, homebound elderly in partnership with Interfaith Community Services and others in need. More than 600 children in six schools are fed every week. Many bring home care packages to share with parents and siblings who otherwise would likely go hungry. In 2020, almost 125,000 meals were served.
The GAP Job Training Programs provide quality education to under-employed, unemployed and in-need individuals. The free 10-week intensive programs are offered in Culinary Arts (400 hours of education led by Chef John) or Auto Tech. Through mentoring and weekly life and financial skills classes, students move beyond surviving into thriving careers, ensuring their long-term stability and success.
