CIA President Featured on Heritage Radio Program

Hyde Park, NY – The path to becoming president of the world’s premier culinary college can take many twists and turns. Although he has been at the helm of The Culinary Institute of America since 2001, Tim Ryan didn’t set out to become its president. Heritage Radio Network’s All in the Industry program recently spent almost an hour chatting with Dr. Ryan, a CIA graduate who, in addition to holding an Ivy League doctorate, is a Certified Master Chef and Culinary Olympic champion.

Find out what he really wanted to be in life, before his culinary career took him around the world and then back to his alma mater. During his discussion with host Shari Bayer, Dr. Ryan also shares recent and future CIA educational innovations and offers his take on the food issues of the day.

The episode can be streamed or downloaded as a podcast online.

The Brooklyn-based Heritage Radio Network produces dozens of weekly radio shows and podcasts about the food, beverage, and hospitality industry.
