Student Reviews:

Photos of Italian Culinary Institute•  "I found my time at ICI very motivating and engaging. The teaching was always pacey, well structured and intensely informative.

The level is pitched at students who wanted to seriously grow and develop not for those who might just want to ‘get by on the basics’. My time at ICI enabled me to develop my passion for food and I have since gone on to successfully open a food business."
Nicole Dunphy, Ireland (The Evolution of Italian Cuisine)

•  "I have attended ICI a total of two times and each experience has been quite rewarding. The courses are filled with information and hands on cooking.

The instructors I have encountered at ICI have been quite knowledgeable and what I particularly like is that they go not only into how to prepare something, but they delve into the history of the dish. In my opinion the history of the dish is just as important as knowing how to prepare it."

Tom Kresler, USA (The Evolution of Italian Cuisine; Traditional Italian Charcuterie: Curing Meats, Sausage Making & Artisanal Salumi)

•  "I attended ICI for the advanced culinary and pastry immersion that I had heard about. The director and the chef instructors gave me the opportunity to discover new cooking methods that today has given me the power to use them in many versatility dishes.

I participate in culinary competitions and so am able to measure my skills against the competition and so I know that after attending I became a better chef."

David Giani, USA (The Evolution of Italian Cuisine)
