The Institute of Culinary Education Launches Center for Food Media.

    NEW YORK, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ — The Institute of Culinary Education
is launching today the Center for Food Media at ICE (CFM), the latest among
its professional development programs. From podcasting and blogging to
cookbook writing and food history, this unique assortment of 25 classes
covers all aspects of media as they pertain to the culinary world. Three
special events with Food & Wine editor in chief Dana Cowin, author Michael
Ruhlman, and Food Network Vice President of Culinary Production Susan
Stockton are also scheduled for 2008-2009. A complete schedule is available

    Classes include food writing (for print and online, in one or multiple
sessions), becoming a publicist, culinary travel writing, working with an
agent, creating a TV show, food styling and photography, primers in food
economics, pop culture, and experimental cuisine, doing research,
restaurant reviewing, food essay writing, and media training. They target
career changers, beginners, and seasoned pros, whether they work freelance
or on staff.

    “Career tracks that combine a love of food with writing, visual, or
technological skills have become ever more viable, and plentiful,” said CFM
Director Anne E. McBride. “At the same time, one cannot afford to master
only one aspect of the food world to succeed. The classes we offer aim at
creating well-rounded food media professionals.”

    Instructors, who include author and photographer James Peterson, writer
and blogger Andrea Strong, writer David Leite, marketing and public
relations expert Jennifer Baum, food scholar Fabio Parasecoli, and
syndicated columnist Marge Perry, are all actively engaged in the
profession about which they teach, and possess a strong command of the
media world on a national scale. They are passionate about what they do,
and about teaching it to their students.

    “Our decision to launch this food media initiative is a logical
confluence of time, place, and resources,” ICE President Rick Smilow
commented. “Our career students express an ever-growing interest in food
media, ICE is in the center of the media capital of the country, and so
many of the experts who will be teaching at the center are already friends
of the school.”

    Complete schedule and class descriptions are available online at For further information, please contact Kelly
Ann Hargrove at 212-847-0700 ext. 217 or via email at
