Special Excursions
Culture is one of the most important elements that distinguishes a chef from a great chef. This is how a culinarian is able to recognize and KNOW where food comes from and the history from whence it came...

Just knowledge is a product of culture, culture itself is acquired, in gran part, from travel. Therefore, as part of every program at the Italian Institute for Advanced Culinary and Pastry Arts (ICI), participants travel with master chefs to different regions in Italy where they are guided on an educational and entertaining journey that always culminates in a food and wine Fest!

In our Northern location, participants travel to some (or ALL in the Master's program) of the nearby cities of Venice, Florence, Bologna, Ferrara, Verona, Parma and more. In the Southern location, we travel to Taormina and Messina, Sicily, the Amalfi Coast, Rome with Master students visiting all of them!
Open Air Markets
A typical Italian open air market offers culinarians an insight to the country's most traditional aspects as well as an opportunity to browse foods, cheeses, wines and cured meats that are still produced by artisans. Participants compare and taste the difference between these products to those of the industrial sector.

Besides being educational, visitors have the opportunity to shop, not as a tourist, but as an Italian. In addition to great food and wine, Italy also has some of the best fashion available in the world and mercatino houses treasures at a fraction of the cost of retail stores.

Market visits are scheduled every week of every program at the Italian Institute for Advanced Culinary and Pastry Arts (ICI) and continues to be a highlight of the exceptional culinary and cultural experience...

Artisan Food Makers and Winery Visits
Our masters constantly instill in our participants that it's imperative for a culinary professional to know quality products from the source. Hence, every program includes visits to wineries and specialty food makers including cheese, cured meats, preserves, pickling and more.

These visits have participants not only watching but many times working alongside professional food artisans. Rather than just being a 'tour', these visits are designed in a way to guide our students through every phase of production including detailed scientific and gastronomic information usually privy to only those producers.

Visits are always concluded with a tasting of each specialty and wine with a final synopsis of flavor presented by a master chef...
