The National Restaurant Association Military Foundation will host 30 award-winning military service members at a week-long education program at The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone in St. Helena, Calif., Nov. 18-22.

The Foundation's 2013 Armed Forces Forum for Culinary Excellence program aims to hone participants' culinary and foodservice management skills and inspire future careers in the restaurant and foodservice industry, according to a news release. The participants are recipients of the Foundation's excellence in foodservice awards and represent the U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, Air National Guard and Air Force Reserves.

The forum features interactive seminars, hands-on cooking activities, and mentoring and career-coaching sessions, including interactive tasting seminars on flavor dynamics and global cuisine, a CIA campus and herb garden tour, a knife skills demo, sessions on making healthier meals and repairing and reviving recipes, as well as techniques for cooking seasonal dishes.

More than 250,000 military veterans are employed in the restaurant industry, the release said. In the next five years, the NRA projects the number of additional employment opportunities to increase by 25,000.
