Marcus SamuelssonChef Marcus is on the National Board of Directors in New York for the Careers Through Culinary Arts Program, and has been a generous benefactor of the effort. C-CAP provides culinary education in high schools for at-risk and disadvantaged students thinking about careers in the culinary arts. As seniors, if the culinary arts becomes a true career direction, there is a generous scholarship program where the best of the best are identified in a series of competitions and are awarded scholarships to the top line culinary arts universities in the country.

Marcus Samuelsson is going to be at Post & Beam in Baldwin Hills on Tuesday evening, February 26th  cooking with host chef Govind Armstrong at a dinner to benefit C-CAP. It’s a “Taste of Harlem” saluting Black History Month. The menu is reimagined soul classics.

The dinner itself is sold out but an After Party with a DJ is being organized. Check with Post & Bream  at 323.299.5599 for the details. It also benefits C-CAP.
