After working for a dozen years as a carpenter, Edward Behr created the quarterly The Art of Eating. From the first modest eight-page issue, it has grown to become one of the nation's most respected and influential periodicals about food and wine. Behr has written about many of the best farmers and food artisans in France, Italy, and the United States. He is also the author of The Artful Eater. He has been featured in publications ranging from The New York Times and The Atlantic to Forbes and The Financial Times. In 2014, the James Beard Foundation inducted Behr into their industry renowned "Who's Who of Food and Drink in America." He advises ICE students to stay focused, “In my experience, a culinary career has been a lot of hard work. It helps to have a clear focus: to know what really interests you. In those who work for me, two things I especially look for are skill and discipline.”
