The National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation has launched a new initiative, called Project Taste Test — Servin' Up Successful Careers, that showcases career opportunities in the foodservice sector. Through a partnership with PepsiCo Foodservice, Project Taste Test is an ongoing video series that features leading industry executives and gives advice to ProStart students seeking a foodservice career.

According to a news release, Project Taste Test's first video features PepsiCo Corporate Executive Research Chef Stephen Kalil. Additional Project Taste Test videos will debut during the 2013-2014 school year.

"We are thrilled to launch this first video and ignite the excitement in our next generation of foodservice professionals," said Rob Gifford, executive vice president of philanthropic initiatives for the NRAEF. "The experts featured in this video series bring a passion to the industry that truly shines through, and we at the NRAEF are eager to share their success stories with our students across the country."

In addition to the video series, Project Taste Test consists of in-classroom discussion and activity guides.

In the first video, Kalil discusses his experience developing and launching new products. He also talks about what he loves about his career and tips for culinary students looking to pursue a similar path in the industry.
