About International Culinary Center - New York City

Founded in 1984 as The French Culinary Institute in Soho, New York City, the International Culinary Center has welcomed students from more than 80 countries around the world. The global expert in culinary and wine education, ICC has trained such celebrated chefs as Bobby Flay, David Chang, Christina Tosi and Judy Joo. Whether the focus is Professional Culinary, Pastry Arts, Cake Design, Bread Baking, Italian Culinary or Wine Studies, an ICC graduate leaves with the credentials, confidence and global connections for a rising career.

The secret to ICC’s award-winning program? A Total Immersion curriculum with hands-on instruction that transforms students from novice to professional skill levels in just six months, including real-world experience.

The school’s deans are cooking legends—such as Jacques Pépin, Jacques Torres, José Andrés—and a low student-to-teacher ratio assures students get the attention needed to flourish. An advisor assists on everything from visas to housing, while premium facilities ensure each student gets both kitchen space and support not found at larger schools. More than 90% of students graduate.

The ICC experience reaches far beyond the kitchen; set in the culinary capital of Manhattan and California’s lush Silicon Valley, students have access to some of the best restaurants, vineyards and chefs in the world.

    "Every day I cook in my restaurants, I’m using techniques that I learned at ICC. Every day. And I always will for the rest of my life.”

    – Bobby Flay, ICC graduate, chef/restaurateur and TV personality

    "It is truly amazing what the International Culinary Center accomplishes with their students in as little as six months. It is the equivalent of years of a traditional apprenticeship."

    – Alain Ducasse, one of the world’s most decorated chefs, and currently at the helm of three signature restaurants —in Monaco, Paris and London—each honored with three Michelin® stars.

    “I chose ICC because of the ‘small-feel’ of the school. People know your name, and you’ll be amazed how fast and how much you will learn.”

    – Leslie Savary French - ICC Graduate 2014

    “The International Culinary Center is poised near or at the top. It’s like going to Oxford to study English.”

    – Mario Batali, named Outstanding Chef in America and Outstanding Restaurateur by the James Beard Foundation

    “I have so much respect for the International Culinary Center that I hire their students the day they graduate.”

    – David Bouley, chef and owner of award-winning restaurants Bouley and Brushstroke
