Meet the Culinary Entrepreneurs

An ongoing business lecture series at ICE

Meet The Culinary Entrepreneurs is an exclusive lecture series featuring some of America's top food business experts.

The sessions — held throughout the year at ICE — introduce students and the public to the world’s leading restaurateurs, specialty food retailers, caterers and other culinary business proprietors who have established highly regarded national and international brands. The ongoing series was designed to complement ICE’s diploma in Restaurant & Culinary Management program, which trains students with career goals of owning or operating a restaurant or other food businesses.

An ICE management instructor moderates each of the 90-minute discussions, which focus on the wisdom and candid experiences of the culinary entrepreneur. Whether you’re a student or already active in the food industry, this is your chance to get in-person advice from some of the industry’s most influential leaders. No matter your career goals, these experts’ wealth of knowledge is sure to leave you better equipped to manage or launch your own culinary ventures.

These lectures are free for current ICE students, $15 for alumni and $40 for general public.
