This week the Mediation Center and Crown Heights Jewish Community Council celebrated the accomplishments of the young women in the Youth Entrepreneurship Program with a graduation ceremony and book launch party for the cookbook they created, Crown Heights is Cookin’. The young women, from diverse backgrounds themselves, interviewed and photographed a diverse group of Crown Heights residents and compiled their recipes and memories about food in this tasty volume. The book is for sale at the Mediation Center and at blurb.com for $25, and the young women share in the profits.
The launch party was well-attended by around fifty community members and others interested in the young women’s innovative project. They even attracted News 12 Brooklyn, who did a report on the project. Check it out here and stop into the Mediation Center to purchase your copy of the book!
