The CIA held its annual Leadership Awards event at the the American Museum of Natural History in New York City on April 28. Celebrity chefs from around the country joined CEOs, culinary entrepreneurs, and food industry leaders who were part of a capacity crowd of more than 600.
This year we celebrated four of New York City's most respected culinary innovators, creators, and inspirations who achieved so many firsts in our industry. From their genius has sprung generations of chefs, restaurateurs, and savvy food writers. We were delighted to honor these extraordinary visionaries.
