Culinary School Gives Latinos a Taste of the Top
Gardner, Lee
Chronicle of Higher Education, Dec 2012
With scholarships and other special programs, the Culinary Institute of America's (CIA) Texas campus hopes to make its Latino students into industry leaders. CIA is considered as the most august culinary school in the United States. CIA San Antonio dispatches chefs to study and document traditional cuisines throughout Latin America for its Center for Foods of the Americas research arm, and it brings in renowned chefs for extended visits to demonstrate their Latin American specialties for students and visiting professionals. But its chief contribution to advancing Latin cuisine and Latino chefs may come from the simple fact that the campus is in San Antonio, not a thousand miles away in New York.
