ICE Hosts MC in NYC

In conjunction with Modernist Cuisine‘s whistle-stop launch tour this week, the Institute of Culinary Education (ICE) hosted a fantastic event at their Manhattan headquarters on Wednesday, March 23.

Nathan kicked off the event with a presentation, followed by a question and answer session with the attendees.

After the presentation, the group made their way to a Modernist Cuisine reception on the 14th floor. The reception featured seven tasting stations, each lead by a member of the Culinary Team.

Anjana, Johnny, and Max (who graduated with highest honors from ICE) were on hand throughout the event.

By all accounts, the event was a raging success, thanks in no small part to the outstanding facility, competent staff, and gracious hospitality provided by the Institute of Culinary Education. The Modernist Cuisine team is eternally grateful.

    This tour is the rockstar-est thing to happen to cooking… Ever. Please make sure you trash at least one hotel room. I want to hear stories years from now about how housekeeping couldn’t get the smell of foie out of the drapes.

    Could you identify the dishes?

    Oh I wish I could be counted as one of the elite who partake in this epicurious affair. I am only a peon in comparison, but I hope to one day get my hands on some liquid nitrogen for a dinner party. I would love to see something like this featured on Food Network but it may be a little grandiose for them, or I should say the viewers. Perhaps PBS would be a better audience. I watch Food Network often on my iPhone since I don’t have much time at home. It is so nice because it really fits my lifestyle and I couldn’t do it without my DISH Network employee Slinbox. Someday maybe these techniques will become mainstream and I won’t have to go to New York or LA to sample them.

    Well done with all you’ve achieved
    Any chance the tour will come to the UK?
