Spain’s 10 Cocina de Vanguardia/International Culinary Center


The International Culinary Center (ICC) is one of the world’s premier culinary schools, with campuses in New York City and California. Founded as the French Culinary Institute, it rebranded 2006 to reflect the launch of its Spanish and Italian courses. Spain’s 10 Cocina de Vanguardia was a one-off event to showcase the country’s cuisine and leading chefs.

We provided boutique-sourcing services to enable some of the country’s top chefs and multiple Michelin-star winners to prepare their signature dishes at the ICC. This was followed by a series of cookery demonstrations, organized under the Madrid Fusion brand, for influential press and professional audiences in New York City.
