When we talk about the “culinary world” we appreciate that it really does include the whole globe.
Given the connections, curiosity and energy that exist at ICE, it’s no surprise that as an institution, we have both forged foreign alliances and arranged international travel and externship programs for students and alumni.
Foreign Work Study & Volunteer Opportunities
While students cannot do their ICE program required externship outside the US, we do have a range of three month work-abroad restaurant externship options after graduation. Countries include Thailand, Ireland, France, Italy, Spain, Mexico and Chile. In most cases, local lodging is pre-arranged and in some cases, the externships include payment.
Additionally, ICE is often invited to send students to international opportunities ranging from working at the American Pavilion at the Cannes Film Festival, to competing in an LG Electronics student cooking competition in Dubai. For additional details, click here.
Several ICE Chef-Instructors lead periodic trips to European culinary destinations, that include hands-on cooking and master classes. Gerri Sarnatoro leads and teaches at Cucina Della Terra in the Umbria region of Italy, while Kathryn Gordon leads and teaches an annual course in the Loire Valley in France.
