An exciting new initiative called Young Chefs Day aims to help young food lovers explore their passion for cooking with guidance from some of Toronto's top restaurateurs. Although still in its planning stages, the idea is to provide high school students with a taste of the culinary industry by giving them the chance to learn, work, and network with professional chefs. "This is an engagement-focused campaign that strives to get young people involved in the wider culture of food, empowering them to redefine the nutritional health of their generation," says Ahmad Ktaech, Managing Director of K+CO, the communications agency behind My Food My Way.

Young Chefs Day will be organized by student nutritional campaign My Food My Way, which was involved the Abbey's Kitchen Stadium campaign over the summer that gave students the opportunity to work alongside some of Toronto's hottest chefs. As a result, several participants were offered jobs at their mentor's restaurant. Interested restaurants and students can sign up to Young Chefs Day through an online portal, which will launch shortly.
