Shopping, Classes, and More for Enthusiasts

CIA Profiled On National TV

More than six million television viewers over Memorial Day weekend learned "the CIA's recipe for success" when CBS Sunday Morning aired a feature segment about the college. Narrated by correspondent Serena Altschul, the story aired in conjunction with graduation season for colleges and universities around the country. It included interviews with students and CIA President Tim Ryan, plus visits to several teaching kitchens, classrooms like the Wine Studies lecture hall, and the 3D printing lab.

Accompanied by historical photos of the CIA's early days, Altschul related how it was founded in 1946 as a "trade school for 50 GIs returning from World War II. It would go on to change how chefs were taught." That education now includes more than learning how to cook. In addition to its renowned culinary and baking and pastry education, the CIA offers bachelor’s degrees in Food Business Management, Culinary Science, and Applied Food Studies, with a new Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management launching in 2018.

The CBS Sunday Morning segment, along with recipes from the CIA and links to the college's food enthusiast and degree programs, can be found on the CBS website.
