RSYP Cooks Up a Storm at John Andrews

Fiona Breslin reports from Egremont.
It was one of the first warm nights of Spring,  Wednesday April, 24, and couldn’t have been a better evening to celebrate Railroad Street Youth Project (RSYP) and its spring culinary interns Table Dinner at John Andrews Restaurant . Under the tutelage of chef Dan Smith,  five students curated and prepared a creative and mouth-watering tasting menu of house-made ricotta fritters, black olive puree, ravioli with spring greens, meats, cheeses, desserts, and more, which they served to a sold-out house. RSYP helps Berkshire youth by supporting activities to encourage self-worth and responsibility; its culinary apprenticeship program offers students the chance to learn from local top chefs — gaining valuable work skills or, possibly, a job a with a local business. As guests dined, the young chefs were presented their certificates of completion and a raffle was drawn for dinner at—John Andrews, of course!
