PIONEERING A CULINARY FIRST ON KILIMANJARO
2012 – Eddie and Amy brainstorm on how to create a unique and well-designed Kilimanjaro mountain meal experience. They engage the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) to train its team of cooks. In a mountain first, CIA Master Chef James Hanyzeski flies to Tanzania to train and climb with the cooking team.
Your entire climbing menu is designed by Amy Frank, a nutrition expert, along with CIA Professor of Culinary Arts, David Kamen. Together they create a delicious climb-specific menu, using locally grown food and produce.
