Miami, Nov. 13, 2018- Miami Dade College’s (MDC) acclaimed Miami Culinary Institute (MCI), in partnership with The Italian Association “Ambasciatori del Gusto”, will host a master class with Michelin star chef Cristina Bowerman on Thursday, Nov. 15 at 11 a.m.
Bowerman is a multi-talented Italian chef who wishes to inspire a new generation of female chefs and lead a fresh, modern era of Italian cooking. Her creative plates are rooted in Italian tradition with international flair. The variety of ethnicities she experienced in U.S. cities, as well as their flavorful cuisines, inspired her to pursue a culinary career. After completing a course at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Texas, she secured work in a series of restaurants, finding there several key mentors who have continued to shape her cooking today. In 2010 she was awarded a Michelin star – the only female chef to receive one that year.
This event is part of The Extraordinary Italian Taste Program, which is promoted by the Italian government aimed to promote genuine Italian products and authentic restaurants. Students will achieve a broader view by discovering different environments, cultures, and proficiencies that will strengthen their personal growth and enhance economic development.
