    We know you’re as committed as we are to helping students learn and succeed—and we’d like to help you. Here are some education resources from the CIA to spark a passion in your students for culinary arts and pursuing careers in the food industry.

    Whether for use in the classroom or simply for handing out to interested students, these materials are perfect for the aspiring young chef or food professional in your school.
