On the Chefs Without Restaurants podcast this week I have chef April DuBose. She’s currently the culinary director and instructor at Baltimore Outreach Services in Baltimore, Maryland, a nonprofit shelter for women and their children. The culinary arts training program there is eight weeks long, and focuses on basic cooking and kitchen skills, as well as sanitation food safety. It prepares women for the basic skills needed for employment in a kitchen at the prep cook level. 
Previously, April was a culinary instructor at Lincoln Culinary where she received the presidents excellence award for instruction, and she was the culinary teacher of the year. She’s also been a forklift driver and bounty hunter. 


In our discussion we talk about teaching, internships and staging, comfort food and nostalgia, sharing recipes, and the loneliness of entrepreneurship.
