Mohawk College
Founded in 1984 as The French Culinary Institute in Soho, New York City, the International Culinary Center has welcomed students from more than 80 countries around the world. The global expert in culinary and wine education, ICC has trained such celebrated chefs as Bobby Flay, David Chang, Wylie Dufresne and Christina Tosi. Whether the focus is Professional Culinary, Pastry Arts, Cake Design, Bread Baking, Italian Culinary, Spanish Culinary or Wine Studies, an ICC graduate leaves with the credentials, confidence and global connections for a rising career.
ICC's award-winning program
The secret to ICC's award-winning program? A trademark Total Immersion? curriculum with hands-on instruction that transforms students from novice to professional skill levels in just six months, including real-world experience.

The school's deans are cooking legends—such as Jacques Pépin, Jacques Torres, José Andrés—and a low student-to-teacher ratio assures students get the attention needed to flourish. An advisor assists on everything from visas to housing, while premium facilities ensure each student gets both kitchen space and support not found at larger schools. More than 90% of students graduate.

The ICC experience reaches far beyond the kitchen. With locations in the culinary capital of Manhattan, California's lush Silicon Valley and Emilia-Romagna, Italy, students have access to some of the best restaurants, vineyards and chefs.
