Hello! I'm Dan
and I am currently in my ninth term in Bachelor's, graduating this May. I am currently one of the writers and the photographer for La Papillote. When I'm not doing either, I run my other blog
. If there is anything that I learned at this school, it is that "A cook knows how, and a chef knows why." I really believe that a lot of things around the food world (and the world in general) deserves an explanation, which is the main driving force as to why I do what I do. With that said, happy reading and please do not hesitate to ask questions!

Hello everyone! My name is Nora
, and I am currently finishing my Associates Degree in Culinary Arts. My favorite food is ice cream and I firmly believe that bacon does, in fact, make everything better. If a picture is worth a thousand words, than a plate of food is worth a million. I have been blogging since 2005 (http://livelifeeatright.com
) to share my experiences with all things relating to the history and culture of food. I hope you'll join me as I unravel my learnings & discoveries at The Culinary Institute of America on our student blog! Cheers!

was born in central New Jersey and grew up in a Sicilian family. Every holiday, her grandmother and father would prepare extravagant feasts to celebrate food and life. Giulianna carried this love and joy for food throughout her career and studied the culinary arts. She is an adventure seeker, a traveler, a journalist and a history buff.
When Giulianna’s father advised her to seek a career that she wouldn't mind tending to each and every day, her answer to his proposal was in fact, cooking. She has combined her writing and passion for food to fulfill the role of Editor in Chief for the school newspaper, La Papillote (The Culinary Institute of America).
Giulianna has ambitions to own a restaurant and dreams of a family establishment where her brother will play music for dinner service, her father will build upon the property and her mother will help her manage. She aspires to live a simple life full of wonderful friends, company, food and wine and considers herself blessed to be able to travel through various school progams offered by the CIA.
Giulianna now works at the Tutoring Center and the Publishing Department to continue her passion of writing. Off-campus, she also volunteers for food festivals and winery assistance when available. Giulianna's goal after graduation is to apply for a Manager in Training Program specializing in Italian cuisine and wine. After that, she yearns to travel to Italy and work there for a few months exploring her heritage and culture. After that, the sky is the limit!
