-- Through the Italian Culinary Foundation, Acclaimed Chef Instructors to Further School’s Teachings of Authentic, Contemporary Italian Cuisine --

Portland, OR – February 27, 2007 – Western Culinary Institute
is proud to announce its latest innovative teaching endeavor, “The Visiting Italian Chef Instructor” program. In cooperation with New York-based Italian Culinary Foundation, Western Culinary Institute welcomes Chef Domenico D’Agostino. Students will participate in the Chef’s customized, three-week program, which is ultimately designed to elevate the standards and understanding of authentic Italian cuisine in America. The program commences on March 5, 2007. The non-profit Italian Culinary Foundation, founded and run by renowned restaurateur Tony May, also boasts Certified Master Chef and globally recognized educational innovator Ferdinand Metz as one of its key advisors.

Later this year, the Italian Culinary Foundation will also host a Chef Instructor from Western Culinary Institute for a two-week study tour of Italy.

Said Chef Kevin Monti, “Our number one job is to consistently deliver the best culinary education possible to our students. Short of living and cooking in another country, there is no better way to learn about the traditions and evolution of a cuisine than to have a native instructor lead the way. Italian cuisine is one that generates exceptional interest among the American dining public and our students, and recent developments in the Italy’s culinary evolution make this a significant and timely opportunity for all of us. I have no doubt that we will all be richer for the experience and we proudly welcome Chef Domenico D’Agostino to our city.”

Said May, President of the Italian Culinary Foundation, “Our goal is to bring learning institutions -- and, ultimately, the American public -- up-to-date about truly contemporary Italian cuisine. The ease of travel and migration of ingredients, among other things, have had a significant impact on the way Italians in every region cook. As a result, broad knowledge of the ingredients themselves – first and foremost – is the key to creating great Italian cuisine. This concept is the cornerstone of every ICF teaching program.”

Metz added, “With an emphasis on absolute authenticity, this program represents an exciting educational advantage to the participating schools. Students will be given the rare opportunity to directly interact with some of the best teachers of one of the great cuisines of the world.” ICF’s Visiting Chef Instructor program is adapted to each school’s particular needs and includes lectures, seminars, and hands-on kitchen practice. In some cases, the visiting instructors will also lead professionals in Continuing Education programs for one week of their stay. Through this program, Visiting Chef Instructors are attending 20 top culinary institutions in the U.S. in 2007.

To help ensure students gain a thorough understanding of the role of ingredients in Italian cuisine, numerous producers and distributors of fine Italian foods graciously donated goods to the Italian Culinary Foundation's Visiting Chef Instructor program.
