Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy freshman Astana Boyd loves to bake and cook. Her principal, Judith Parker, thinks she has a mind for business too.
So, on a recent afternoon, Boyd spent time at Heaven’s Table, a new barbecue restaurant on Milwaukee’s west side, to get a better idea of what it takes to run a restaurant.
Job shadowing chef-owner Jason Alston taught Boyd about how much time goes into prep work and the importance of staying well stocked on supplies and ingredients. She walked away with more confidence that owning a food establishment could be her future career.
