In January 2018, ICE opened its second campus at 521 East Green Street in Pasadena, California. The new LA campus extends across 38,000 square feet and is situated in the heart of Southern California. 

After 42 years in New York City, the Institute of Culinary Education opened the doors to this second location in Los Angeles - an urban oasis for food and restaurant lovers and without a doubt one of the most exciting food cities in America. We've reimagined our Pasadena space as a center for learning, innovation and creativity, staying true to the vision embodied by our New York flagship.

An Artisanal Approach to Education

Thousands of pounds of fish, poultry, produce, spices and other high quality ingredients pass through ICE’s stewarding department each day. We go beyond the provision of ready-to-use ingredients, recognizing that artisanal production constitutes an essential area of culinary study.
