We have given career coaching to Cafe Nova team members,  the apprentices have been taught how to cook international dishes by the team, and the apprentices helped the cafe bring sandwiches to the operation by supporting the lovely Jackie in the start up stage.  The wonderful Dalvani the Brazilian goddess in the kitchen regularly helps us with our monthly stint at Portobello Road food.
