Asada’s October bakery pop-up benefits Project Host culinary school
During October, you can support a great cause while enjoying delicious desserts during Asada Restaurant’s pop-up bakery benefiting the culinary school at Project Host in Greenville.
Tasty baked goods made in-house will be featured for sale every Saturday during October at the bakery pop-up called Azücar from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in Asada Restaurant’s parking lot at 903 Wade Hampton Boulevard in Greenville.
Asada Co-Owner Gina Cortez Petti’s temporary bakery will offer a variety of her legendary desserts such as Tres Leches Cake, Chocoflan, Orange Almond Cake, Bread Pudding and the restaurant’s popular Guava Empanadas.
Artisan breads from baker Colin Urbanick of St. Hazel Bakery Co. also will be available, with those proceeds donated to Project Host, as well.
The CC Pearce Culinary School at Project Host provides a pathway to financial stability for the unemployed and underemployed. The culinary school is a six-week program that includes hands-on food preparation, ServSafe food safety instruction and employment readiness lessons to prepare people for gainful employment.
The program is funded through scholarships and is at no cost to students who develop their skills by preparing meals for Project Host’s Cooking for Kids and through internship and employment opportunities on the HostMobile and in the bakery.
