CIA is Celebrating 70 Years


Looking back on the last 70 years, the CIA has seen many changes. What would our founders, Frances Roth & Katharine Angell, say if they could see our riverside, New York campus complete with 41 kitchens & bakeshops? What would our first chef-instructors, teaching back in 1946, have said about 3D food printers? How many from our first class of 50 students would jump at the opportunities of today’s graduates to pursue careers in wines & beverages, front-of-house management, research & development, and so much more?

Take a stroll down memory lane with us. You’ll be amazed by the changes!
