Chef Lee Stewart
“I have been in the restaurant business for almost 30 years. I have had a lot of great experiences and worked with some amazing chefs. I want to pass these experiences on to others and inspire them the way my mentors inspired me. This will be a very rewarding experience for me. I have trained several people in the past and have seen some of them grow to be amazing chefs. It is a great feeling to know that you have been a positive influence and inspiration in someone's life. If my experience has taught me anything it’s that being a chef isn’t just about knowing how to cook, it’s about loving how to cook. That is what I look forward to working in First State's Culinary Arts Program.”
Chef Charles Webb
“I am so excited to be joining this awesome team at the First State Community Action Culinary Arts Program, and I look forward to meeting the students from Milford, Cape Henlopen, Woodbridge and Indian River School Districts. My goal is to provide hope for a successful future and to show the youth that there are no limits to their dreams. As far as I'm concerned there are no limits, no boundaries; that belief alone breeds success. I plan to give my all to these students, each and every day. I hope I inspire them enough to do the same.”

This dynamic duo—better than salt and pepper—will be the main ingredients to students’ success.
