This week the Mediation Center and Crown Heights Jewish Community Council celebrated the accomplishments of the young women in the Youth Entrepreneurship Program with a graduation ceremony and book launch party for the cookbook they created, Crown Heights is Cookin’.  The young women, from diverse backgrounds themselves, interviewed and photographed a diverse group of Crown Heights residents and compiled their recipes and memories about food in this tasty volume.  The book is for sale at the Mediation Center and at for $25, and the young women share in the profits.
