ICE Campus: New York City
The story of the Institute of Culinary Education is intrinsically linked to the city that never sleeps. From our founding on the Upper West Side over 40 years ago as Peter Kump’s Cooking School, to our current location spanning 74,000 square feet in lower Manhattan, New York City’s ravenous appetite for innovation and growth has inspired generation after generation of up-and-coming chefs. Beyond the classroom, students can explore the vast culinary offerings of New York’s many neighborhoods, volunteer at esteemed culinary organizations such as The James Beard Foundation, and through their industry externship, spend time in the kitchens of great chefs. In addition, being in New York City means it’s easy for top talent to stop by our campus. Some of the biggest names in the industry visit ICE NYC to recruit, and to participate in our Meet the Culinary Entrepreneur events and Chef Demo series.
