Students from ICE’s Russian campus arrived in New York City last week to learn the tricks of the trade from some of ICE’s best instructors. As part of the school’s exclusive partnership with SWISSAM Hospitality School in St. Petersburg Russia, 15 students traveled over 4,000 miles to learn how restaurants operate in America.
These students who hope to own or operate their own restaurants back in Russia started off their visit by attending classes taught by Stephen Zagor and Vin McCann, New York City’s leading Culinary Management Instructors. Learning how to run a successful enterprise, as well as partaking in field trips and guest lecturers as ICE's NYC students is all on the two-week agenda.
The students are soaking in the sights and sounds of New York City, taking trips to Eataly and Blue Smoke in their first few days. The SWISSAM schools in Russia provide career training using ICE’s curriculum, preparing students for culinary arts and hospitality careers all over the world.
