Miami Dade College’s Miami Culinary Institute and Gambero Rosso of Italy team up

The Miami Culinary Institute at Miami Dade College and Gambero Rosso, a leading food and wine publisher and educator in Italy, have agreed to launch a new partnership that will allow students access to Gambero Rosso’s “Città del Gusto” (City of Taste) cooking schools in Rome, Catania, Palermo, Turin, Naples, and Milan. The Miami Culinary Institute will be the exclusive educational partner of Gambero Rosso in the Eastern United States, Miami Dade College said.

Gambero Rosso is an Italian multimedia company that offers a selection of courses, masters programs, magazines, guides, and a television channel.

“This partnership will explore innovative initiatives to share food and wine education and entertainment programming between MCI, Gambero Rosso Channel and MDC TV, the college’s television station,” MDC Wolfson Campus President José A. Vicente said in a statement. “Program activities will be based on several key objectives, including promoting exchange and internship opportunities; supporting innovation of new programs; sharing knowledge, culture and tradition of the culinary arts and wine industry; sharing best practices; and establishing a Gambero Rosso scholarship for MCI students, among others.”
