Video: Master chefs teach Western New York students

ANGOLA -- Culinary students and instructors from around Western New York are learning today from some of the best.

Two chefs who studied and taught at the Culinary Institute of America have come to the Erie 2 Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Board of Cooperative Educational Services Lake Shore/Carrier Career and Technical Academy.

Students from other BOCES centers in East Aurora, Fredonia and Jamestown, as well as Lake Shore, along with instructors from Orleans-Niagara BOCES, are participating in a program dubbed "Teaching with the CIA."

The master chefs are James Heywood and Arnym Solomon. Heywood, who is known for his award-winning chili, was named the Culinary Institute of America's first heritage professor and has been a chef at hotels in Crawford Notch, N.H., and Boston. Solomon is a member of the Distinguished Alumni of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City and has been an executive for the operators of national restaurant chains like Red Lobster and Olive Garden.
