Ted Siegel’s culinary life began with job with a gourmet food store when he was 15. Although hired to serve as a delivery boy, he found himself fascinated with the kitchen and continued to work there through high school and college. After finishing culinary school in 1982, Siegel moved to California and promptly landed a job at Chez Panisse. For three years he worked alongside Alice Waters, Joyce Goldstein, Steven Sullivan (who went on to found Acme Bakery) and Lindsay Shere. Eventually, he moved back to New York City and cooked in the kitchens of Bistro du Nord, Orso, L'Acajou, Coco Pazzo and Danal. He joined the staff at ICE in June 2001. He says, “I enjoy that my students are so varied in terms of age and other demographics.” He uses his over 40 years of experience to help them discover their culinary voices in the kitchen by preparing them for the industry and sharing his many years of expertise.
