Description

From 17-year-old high school grads to former doctors, artists and executives, ICE students come from all walks of life. In the case of Brooklyn native Christian Souvenir, it took many years in the military before the desire to attend culinary school took hold. The switch from government intelligence work to cooking may seem like a drastic change, but Christian’s disciplined background is serving him well in the kitchen. Since graduating ICE’s Culinary Arts program in 2011, he has already worked in some of Brooklyn’s most innovative new restaurants, including Nightingale 9 and French Louie. Thanks to ICE’s flexible scheduling options, Christian is able to continue kitchen work while pursuing a second ICE diploma in Culinary Management. “I love cooking in restaurants,” Christian explains. “But I saw myself on this path where I could potentially be in charge of people and not have the tools to really help them get better.” To learn how ICE’s Culinary Management program prepares grads to own or operate culinary businesses, visit http://www.ice.edu/career-programs/school-of-culinary-management.
