Hands-On Professional Cooking
During every program at the Italian Institute for Advanced Culinary and Pastry Arts (ICI), each participant prepares and executes a complete Haute Italian Regional Menu alongside our masters. During the Master's program, several multi-course menus are presented including an elaborate buffet comprising hot and cold food, carving stations, express cooking, dessert, gelato and petit fours Participants also prepare sit-down dinners from seven to eleven courses from Amuse-Bouche to Pralines...

The result of this for participants has proven to be the most effective culinary training method in Italian Regional and Mediterranean Cuisine and Patisserie Days, weeks or months of learning, depending on the program, culminates with these special dinners presented to master chefs, participants' peers as well as special guests from the press and gastronomic organizations including La Chaine des Rotisseurs. The whole process ensures that every participant that receives ICI Certification is ready to present authentic Haute Italian Cuisine anywhere in the world.

Wines, Liqueurs and Sommelier Training
Wine is just as much a part of Haute and Traditional Italian Regional and Mediterranean Cuisine as food is and, therefore, every program includes tastings and pairings of several of Italy's best wines.

Wines are paired in individual gustatory sessions as well as during menu development and execution weeks where participants use their newly gained knowledge to perfectly pair several wines during a multi-course menu.

Finally, each meal is finished with a liqueur that matches petit fours, pralines or biscotti from the specific region that they have derived from completing the highest end dining experience available anywhere!

ICI does not employ 'repetition' cooking as in some culinary schools. Rather, participants develop haute multi-course menus and execute them alongside a master chef.

Fine attention to detail is indispensable for a perfect plate.

Cooking executions take place throughout every Master's program ensuring that participants have the expertise to master Italian Regional Cuisine anywhere in the world.

The greatest feeling ever for a culinarian is that which comes after presenting a spectacular event!
