Honor Michael White at C-CAP Annual Benefit

By Heeseung Kim | February 13, 2014


Every year, the Careers for Culinary Arts Program holds a benefit to celebrate a chef who has made a significant contribution to the culinary world, becoming a role model for C-CAP students and alumni. This year, the honored chef is Michael White of the Altamarea Group. Alongside Chef White, nearly 40 featured chefs—including Marcus—will be offering up delicious foods, with the assistance of C-CAP current students and alumni.

After finding a start at the venerable Spiaggia in Chicago, Chef White spent seven years in Italy studying and learning the true heart of Italian cuisine. Afterwards, Chef White returned to Spiaggia before heading to the Big Apple. In 2007, Chef White teamed up with Ahmass Fakahany to open a series of restaurants featuring Italian cuisine and mid-Western hospitality, leading to celebrated spots such as Marea, Ai Fiori, Nicolette, and Osteria Morini in New York, and other restaurants beyond.

C-CAP is a national nonprofit that began in 1990 to help underserved high school students enter the restaurant and hospitality industries. More than 91% of donations to C-CAP go toward supporting C-CAP’s programs.
