The International Culinary Center, founded as the French Culinary Institute, is pleased to grant the Marcella Hazan Scholarship in memory of the legendary cooking teacher. The awarded recipient will receive $20,000 toward their Italian culinary studies at ICC’s New York Campus. The award honors Hazan’s passion for Italian cooking as well as her teachings and food philosophy.

Hazan’s teachings have become the foundation of American home cooking. A teacher and an academic, Hazan came to the U.S. in the mid 1950’s and was dismayed at what passed for Italian cuisine. She taught herself, and later others, in small cooking classes held in her NYC apartment. She created dishes that celebrated ingredients like good olive oil and balsamic vinegar. She taught Americans to savor vegetables like sautéing radicchio and frying squash blossoms. She published her first cookbook, The Classic Italian Cookbook in 1973, which concentrated on purity of flavor. Hazan’s taught Americans that real Italian cooking comes from the heart of the family. 

Applicants must complete and mail in the following application and requirements. Applications must be received by March 7, 2014 deadline. Click here to see more information and the scholarship application.
