NEW YORK — Here is some good news from the city’s Housing Authority (NYCHA): There is a program, Food Business Pathways, that helps NYCHA residents who are good home cooks develop professional skills. It is supported by grants from the nonprofit Citi Community Development. They have organized a mentorship system for the residents, who are trying to make a go of it in the food business. The public can taste samples of their work at an event on the High Line next week featuring more than 20 food professionals, including Saul Bolton, Ariane Daguin, Carlos Suarez, Bill Telepan, Ham El-Waylly and Caroline Fidanza.
