NYC Celeb Chef Joins The Culinary Institute of America


Highly accomplished chef, restaurateur, and author Waldy Malouf has a new mission. After a successful 13-year run as co-owner and chief operating officer of Beacon Restaurant in New York City, Malouf becomes the senior director of special projects at The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in Hyde Park, NY on January 21, 2013.

Chef Malouf returns to the college from which he graduated in 1975 to work with the college’s food and beverage team to contribute to the ongoing refinement of all nine restaurants at the CIA’s three U.S. campuses. Both the kitchens and dining rooms of the restaurants are capstone classes for CIA degree students, where they put their culinary and hospitality education into practice. CIA restaurants have been a key component of the curriculum for the past 40 years, and they have earned dozens of awards and accolades during that time.
