The Power of Food

At The Culinary Institute of America, we believe in the power of food. And your attendance here this evening and support of the college ensures that we can continue to educate the next generation of socially responsible industry leaders, who will go on to tackle such important food-related issues as:
  • Professional Excellence & Innovation
  • Health & Wellness
  • World Cuisines & Cultures
  • Sustainability & Food Ethics
“As never before, chefs are at the center of this incredible, interconnected food world. They are flavor experts, masters of technique, researchers of world food traditions, creative geniuses, and they are in the best position to make healthy foods craveable.”
– CIA President Dr. Tim Ryan ’77, EdD, CMC
