A Meeting with Dorothy

A few lucky FCI students attended a private meeting with Dorothy Cann Hamilton, CEO and founder of The International Culinary Center, and the deans of the French Culinary Institute. We enjoyed wine with hors d'oeuvres and good conversations. We got a chance to mingle with other students from Culinary Arts, Pastry Arts, and The Italian Culinary Academy and got a few words of advice from the master chefs.
