Culinary Arts Student Featured on Rachael Ray Show

Alessandra Ciuffo, a Culinary Arts student at ICE's New York campus, was featured on the Rachael Ray Show — again.

On Monday, January 9, 2023, Alessandra returned to Rachael Ray’s kitchen after her first appearance in 2014, where she guest-starred as an aspiring chef at just 12 years old. This time, she discussed her post-graduate journey and how she pivoted from her Fordham University degree into pursuing food full-time at ICE, where she’s learned about everything from knife skills to herb identification.

“It’s so amazing,” Alessandra says. “Food has always been my passion, and unfortunately it always took a backseat to everything else in my life… but now, I get to go in every day and do what I love.”

She plans to graduate in June after completing the final part of the Culinary Arts curriculum, a two-month externship spent working in a professional kitchen.

Check out a clip of Alessandra’s segment from Monday’s episode.
