The Culinary Institute
The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) is equipping its campuses with Hestan Commercial. This partnership is especially meaningful to us, as many of the renowned chefs who helped inform the design of Hestan Commercial studied at the CIA. We are excited that today’s aspiring chefs will rely on the powerful precision of Hestan as they perfect their sauces and soufflés. The new Hestan Kitchen made its spectacular debut in 2018 at the CIA at Copia. The Hestan Kitchen offers serious foodies the opportunity to cook alongside CIA chefs with the same revolutionary culinary power and performance found in America’s most acclaimed restaurant kitchens.
