Some feel good news - this trendy Brooklyn restaurant is helping refugees become chefs in the United States. We all know that finding a job isn't easy and even more so when you’re a refugee. This is where Emma’s Torch steps in. Besides teaching refugees English and offering them culinary training, Emma’s Torch also helps with interview preparation. This way Emma's Torch is able to empower refugees through culinary training.

Any time is a good time to eat at Emma's Torch, where they serve "New American cuisine-prepared by our new American students," but the best time is when they're having a ticketed graduation dinner, featuring dishes from each student's home country
