Chipotle Shares Culinary Videos with ProStart Educators

We are excited to have Chipotle partner with our ProStart program to share some of the techniques that Chipotle uses everyday through a series of curated culinary videos.

It's part to Chipotle's commitment to changing the way people think about and eat fast food -- an effort that requires fresh ingredients, classical cooking techniques and exceptionally trained people, like the ones whose skills you're sharpening every day.
