Tuesday: Culinary cook-off at county jail

 

Four teams of inmates will take part in the first culinary cook-off at the San Mateo County Jail from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 17. Sheriff Greg Munks and JobTrain's chef Adam Weiner have teamed up to host the competition. Judging will be by local chefs and dignitaries.

A culinary program is one of several vocational training courses offered by the Menlo Park-based JobTrain organization. Chef Weiner and the Sheriff's Office have created a parallel program at the jail. When released, inmates will be able to continue classes at JobTrain's Menlo Park campus at 1200 O'Brien Drive.

The cook-off will take place at the Maple Street Facility, 1590 Maple St. in Redwood City. For more information, call Lori Stone, 330-6454.
