What’s cooking in Queens?
Congresswoman Nydia M. Velázquez (D-12) donned a hairnet to hone her skills in one of the largest kitchens on the East Coast.
Simply known as the “E-Space,” the building houses various fully equipped kitchens, office space and support staff for early- stage catering, retail, and wholesale food businesses.
Velázquez discussed government programs aimed at helping small businesses with Seth Bornstein, Executive Director of the Queens Economic Development Corporation. Velazquez also toured the facilities where she traded secrets for the best method to prepare lasagna with Odette Fada, the corporate chef for Rana USA inc.
QP is a strong advocate for Queens as a magnet for entrepreneurs and new talent.
