Oct. 2, 2014, New York, NY – Aspiring Canadian bakers may
apply for a scholarship to the International Culinary Center in New York
City – and tweet for a chance to meet The Dessert Lady's Mandy Kan.

Representatives from the ICC will be on hand to promote
their programs and the Canadian scholarship at the Recruit in Canada Fair at
the Toronto Metro Convention Centre on Oct. 4 and 5 from 1 to 5 p.m.

The International Culinary Center counts among its alumni
critically acclaimed chefs, successful sommeliers and household names like
Bobby Flay. As of 2014, that alumni list also includes 100 Canadian graduates.
To mark that milestone, ICC launched its Canada Scholarship, worth up to $5,000.

“As a graduate, I can attest firsthand to the exceptional
nature of ICC’s programs. We have excellent programs, and many of the one
hundred Canadian graduates we have worked with to date have gone on to
successful careers. I’m looking forward to meeting potential new Canadian ICC
grads in Toronto and sharing with them all that our school has to offer,” said
Leland Scruby, director of international and career services and associate dean
of students at ICC, in a news release. Scruby, who is a graduate of ICC’s
Professional Culinary Arts and Intensive Sommelier Training programs, and has
been working for ICC since 2005, will provide information on the scholarship
and answer questions about the school’s programs.

To spread the word about the Canada scholarship and ICC’s
presence at the fair, ICC is hosting a social media contest. To enter, eligible
Canadians may simply tweet or Instagram a culinary image using the contest
hashtag #ICCLovesCanada. The photos need to be of an inspirational dish: one
that the entrant has made his or herself, or one they would like to make. One
winner in the Toronto area will have the opportunity for a meet and greet with
ICC grad chef Mandy Kan of The Dessert Lady bakery. “The chance to have a
one-on-one chat with an established, successful chef like Mandy is invaluable
for someone starting out in this industry,” Scruby noted in the release.

Applicants interested in ICC’s Canada Scholarship must
submit a personal statement in the form of a 500-word written essay or
five-minute long video describing their passion and goals for applying to their
chosen program of study.
