Emma’s Torch serves up food made by refugees

“Refugees are welcome here,” says Brooklyn restaurant Emma’s Torch, which is also an eight-week training course that teaches refugees and human trafficking survivors the basics of cooking and serves up dishes made by its students. Emma’s Torch started as a pop-up in 2017, after Brodie realized there was no establishment for refugees like the one she had been mulling over for years. She quit her job as a global press secretary for Human Rights Campaign, graduated from the Institute of Culinary Education where she won the Wusthof Award for Leadership, and teamed up with Chef Alexander Harris. They created an eight-week program for up to 10 students that combines an English language course with culinary training for a locally sourced, seasonal American menu with fare like charred corn cavatelli, grilled branzino and a braised beef brisket.
