Los Angeles Culinary Leaders Welcome ICE

What do some of the city's top chefs and restaurateurs have to say about our Los Angeles expansion? 

Top chefs need top talent

For decades, culinary leaders in New York City have turned to ICE when they need to fill their restaurants with new talent. That's why, when we announced our expansion to the West Coast, the industry took notice.

Wolfgang Puck: "Having a culinary school of ICE's caliber in this market will only enhance the city's standing as a major culinary center in the United States."
Tom Colicchio: "I've been working with ICE students in New York for years and they are consistently among the best young chefs in my restaurants."
