My Culinary Voice: Chef Rick Bayless

"See how deeply you can get into one cuisine."

At ICE, we make it our mission to help students find their culinary voice — that creative drive within each of us that determines how we express ourselves through food. Whether with a career training program, a recreational course in macarons or a special event featuring famous chefs, we’ll give you the tools to hone your culinary creativity. Join us as we ask some of today’s leading food industry pros to share their culinary voices.

Chef and restaurateur Rick Bayless has devoted his culinary career to exploring and sharing his passion for traditional Mexican cuisine. The "Top Chef Masters" and James Beard Award winner has penned nine cookbooks and starred in two PBS television series dedicated to the culinary traditions of Mexico. ICE was thrilled to welcome Rick to our New York campus, where he shared candid professional advice with students as part of our Meet the Culinary Entrepreneurs lecture series.

When we asked Rick to share his culinary voice, his response, unsurprisingly, was centered on his favorite gourmet culture. Watch the video and discover the three aspects of Mexican cuisine that speak to Rick Bayless the most.
