In May 2021, we launched the Beard House Fellows program presented by Capital One, which re-envisions the potential of the James Beard House into a hub of training and professional development for talented emerging chefs. Featuring alums of Careers Through Culinary Arts (C-CAP) partnered schools, each Fellow will have a ten-week residency at the Beard House, where JBF will provide hard skills training along with the opportunity to develop a meal kit, in collaboration with Great Performances, that will be available across the country.

Meet our Beard House Fellow, Adijatu Jalloh. Adijatu was only eight years old when she realized she wanted to be a chef. Cooking throughout her childhood and teenage years, Adijatu began competing in culinary competitions and working in professional kitchens at the age of 16, including at Nobu57 in New York. Currently working as the head line cook at Cut by Wolfgang Puck, while simultaneously finishing her last semester at New York City College of Technology, this ever busy chef is also building out her business ventures: Adji’s Kitchen, a delivery catering business, and A.M.J Fusion, a traveling catering group for large groups and private fine dining experiences. With a mission of introducing African ingredients to the culinary lexicon, Adjiatu’s future plans include opening a fine dining African fusion restaurant and writing an African cookbook.
