BROOKLYN - A special five-course meal was served Tuesday at a homeless shelter in Brooklyn.

The meal was the culmination of an eight-week culinary course in which chefs learned everything from baking to knife skills. It's sponsored by the Doe Fund, which helps the homeless transition to a new life.

The program is the second of its kind at the Bedford-Stuyvesant shelter.

Five graduates from the first class got jobs in restaurant kitchens.

The chefs in training served dinner at the shelter twice a week to prepare for Tuesday. The special meal included oysters, crab and panna cotta.
