ICE is thrilled to announce the newest addition to our faculty—the celebrated Chef David Waltuck, formerly of Chanterelle, as the school’s first-ever director of culinary affairs. In this new role, Chef David will bring his talent, insight and years of experience to ICE students.
Chef David has enjoyed an illustrious culinary career. During his 30-year tenure as executive chef and proprietor of Chanterelle, he and the restaurant received two James Beard Awards, including Best Chef NYC in 2007 and Best Restaurant in America in 2004 (not to mention another 10 nominations) and two four-star reviews from the New York Times (1987 and 1993). Heralded for its innovative blend of French and New American cuisine, Chanterelle introduced a then-unknown type of fine dining to downtown Manhattan.
