The Community Caring Center and the Secret Garden, a culinary business development and job training center, hosted its second hospitality and culinary job fair in August to promote local jobs. More than 35 restaurants, hospitals and hotels interviewed more than 200 job seekers, some of whom were hired on the spot. Honoring the culinary theme of the event, four local celebrity chefs were given an identical set of ingredients and 25 minutes to produce a meal.
