Respected Chefs Retire After Combined 58 Years at CIA

Chefs Howard “Corky” Clark and Alain Levy taught their final classes on September 6. Clark, a 1971 CIA graduate, retired after 31 years on the faculty of his alma mater and Levy retired after 27 years at the college. Chef Clark taught culinary arts, focusing on seafood fabrication and preparation for most of his tenure. Chef Levy was in the baking and pastry department, teaching pâtisserie and other pastry courses.

Passionate about both teaching and cooking, Chef Clark says he feels bad for people who consider a job as getting up in the morning to do work they really don’t enjoy: “By those standards, I’ve never had a job and have never worked a day in my life.”

Fellow faculty members presented Levy with a signed hockey jersey, and Clark—a motorcycle enthusiast—with a chef jacket festooned with fringes and a Harley-Davidson logo. “Each fringe represents hundreds of students whose lives you’ve touched and on whom you’ve had an effect,” said CIA Provost Mark Erickson, adding that Clark and Levy each taught thousands of CIA students over the years, rotating through their kitchen and bakeshop classrooms in three-week blocks.
