Culinary Liaisons Culinaires
Yesterday, Dorothy Cann Hamilton (founder and CEO of The International Culinary Center), along with Susan Ungaro (president of The James Beard Foundation) hosted a welcome dinner at the school to honor the chefs cooking at Culinary Liaisons Culinaires, the JBF's 2010 gala dinner and auction being held tonight at The Four Seasons Restaurant in New York City. Famed French chefs Joël Robuchon, Guy Savoy, Alain Ducasse, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, François Payard, along with FCI chef-instructor Pascal Béric and current students will be preparing a menu item each for the gala. The food at last night's celebration was also prepared by FCI students. Top chefs and food industry professionals gathered to enjoy the pre-gala feast.
