Chef Zohreh Mohagheghfar, graduate of Emma’s Torch ❘ Persian cuisine

Join Chef Zohreh Mohagheghfar as she prepares a Persian dish that embodies her memory of home.

During the demonstration, Mohagheghfar will speak about her experiences at Emma’s Torch and how the organization has empowered her to find a position working as a professional chef in a French restaurant after graduating from the program.
