If you have a passion for food and a craving to learn, you’ve come to the right place. The Culinary Institute of America is the resource for cooking, baking, wine, and entertaining. As the world’s premier culinary college, the CIA offers an unparalleled gastronomic experience for food enthusiasts, including cooking classes at both their New York and California schools, daily campus tours, student-run restaurants, career discovery opportunities, award-winning cookbooks, state-of-the-art training materials, and superbly crafted culinary essentials for the home. The CIA is the ultimate destination for all food-lovers… and after visiting there, I was in awe of all the foodstuff to be learned. We were able to spend a few minutes at their gift shop just in time before it closed. I picked up some great postcards that I will be creating a framed collage with to hang in my kitchen for inspiration.
Here are pics of the large wine barrels that lined the walkway towards the gift shop:
