Location and Friends Make ALL the Difference
Study in America’s culinary capital: make New York City your classroom. New York City’s best chefs and restaurateurs know, respect, and are friends of our school. We are located in Manhattan’s vibrant Chelsea neighborhood, and our diploma programs provide you with diverse course work, hands-on learning, externships, job placement assistance, electives, and extracurricular options, creating a program that is tailored to your passions.
An ICE Education Opens Doors
Not only will you have the opportunity to study in the culinary capital of the U.S., but also the opportunity to apply your skills during an ICE externship. In New York City and the broader culinary world, it’s all about who you know, and we have a strong network of award-winning restaurants, chefs, and alumni to ensure your ongoing success. ICE alumni and instructors have won national, regional, and local awards and have gained recognition from organizations including the James Beard Foundation, Food & Wine Magazine, Women Chefs & Restaurateurs, the American Culinary Federation, and the IACP.
ICE Is the School for Culinary Business and Culinary Entrepreneurs
Reach your fullest potential. Your aspirations may lead to managing, owning, or starting a business. ICE offers the chance to earn a diploma not only in Culinary or Pastry & Baking Arts, but also the unique opportunity to “double major” in Culinary Management, gaining two diplomas and the essential entrepreneurial elements to succeed. Our schedules are designed to accommodate your motivation, providing tuition incentives for double degree programs.
It Pays to Study With ICE Culinary Arts
An ICE education is built on two essential elements — excellence and value. Other culinary institutions will require you to spend more time and money, but won’t produce better results. In the heart of America's culinary capital, ICE is truly the right place, at the right price.
