A new program at the James Beard Foundation, Beard House Fellows, uses the Beard House in the West Village for residencies for young chefs. There the chefs, mostly those who have completed training with the Careers Through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP), work and learn. As part of the program they each create a meal kit with dinner for two, in collaboration with Great Performances for delivery nationwide. The cost of the kit helps support the residency, which is also funded by Capital One. From Wednesday through Aug. 9, the African fusion kit by Adijatu Jalloh, who graduated from New York City College of Technology and developing several business ventures, can be ordered for delivery on Aug. 24. Her kit contains ginger-scallion prawns, berbere-spiced cauliflower, wheatberry salad, peanut sauce, crispy shallots and, for dessert, cheesecake with strawberry compote; like the other kits, some simple preparations are required for the food.
