There are 66 Certified Master Chefs in the world, and 13 of them are employed at CIA.  This is the one evening when the CMCs together produce a gala 5-course dinner -- memorable cuisine and the chance to meet the CIA Master Chefs personally.

CIA, founded in 1946, is a private, not-for-profit college dedicated to culinary education. CIA offers bachelor's and associate degrees.
