My friend Mark Rosenstein at Smoky Park Supper Club is finally seeing his dream come true with this special event set for Dec. 5. The dinner is the product of an event business, Iron Circus Productions, that Rosenstein is creating with graduates of the Green Opportunities Kitchen Ready culinary program. It’s a long-held dream of Rosenstein’s. This is definitely worth checking out and supporting.
(GO Kitchen-Ready is a culinary training program that prepares graduates for employment in food service. It began as a pilot project funded by Asheville Independent Restaurant Association (AIR) and has since joined the nonprofit Green Opportunities. It is a free training program for low-income adults who face barriers to employment.)
