Seattle's Veena Prasad helps immigrants and refugees use their cooking skills to advance beyond entry-level restaurant jobs. The flip side of her project is increasing the local appetite for gourmet food and home cooking from around the world. We explore the connections between culture and cuisine as the first set of apprentices open Project Feast's newest venture - a café with a menu that features beloved dishes from each student's home country.
