Dedication of Chaîne Kitchen Institute BY SANDRA CUTTER, Vice Chargée de Presse THE DES MOINES Bailliage has a long-standing part- nership with the Iowa Culinary Institute at the Des Moines Area Community College. On January 25, the ICI's kitchen was dedicated as a Chaîne Kitchen. Bailli Jim Cutter presented a special certificate to DMACC President Rob Denson and Dean of Arts and Sciences/Vice Conseiller Culinaire Jim Stick. Under the super- vision of Chefs Régis Semet and Thierry Fernandes from the Association des Cuisiniers de la Loire, ICI students prepared dinner for the group. French chefs have been coming to the ICI to instruct students in classical French cook- ing for thirty years. In addition, the ICI raises funds to send promising young chefs to France to intern with chefs there. Fifty top-rated wines were offered for $25 each, raising $1,250. This year's Chaîne Scholar, Michael Lawler, received a $2,000 scholarship from the Des Moines Bailliage, with funds matched by the Chaîne Foundation. He was also one of the lucky students cho- sen to intern in France. Four former ICI students attended the event to reunite with Chef Semet and his wife, Cécile Semet. All had interned at the Semets' restaurant, Le Nouveau Siècle. Overjoyed to see them again, Cécile called them " mes enfants ."
