The American Sages Project celebrates stalwarts of American Regional Cuisine by integrating their work into our curriculum.
Students at the Institute for the Culinary Arts use the wisdom from these sages to guide their menu-development process while they are in Fine Dining and Plated Desserts courses.
The cooks on this list are here because they have:
- Made a major contribution to the American restaurant & culinary scene.
- Life stories that champion originality and authenticity in specific regional or ethnic cuisine.
- Left an accessible and indelible legacy through books, television, and other media.
