The Midwest Culinary Institute is a national center of educational excellence in the culinary and pastry arts, dietetics, and hospitality technologies. MCI is well-known for its outstanding programs, faculty, and facilities, the latter integrating state-of-the-art technology with first-class tools of the culinary arts. Sean Kagy, a veteran of the Maisonette, the Cincinnatian Hotel as well as other fine dining venues in Cincinnati, Chicago and Washington, D.C., recently became chef de cuisine at the Summit Restaurant at the Midwest Culinary Institute. Kagy not only manages the restaurant, but he plays an instrumental role in the education of the MCI students who work there. Kagy graduated from the New England Culinary Institute in 1992 and then served as a chef at The Inn at Little Washington in Washington, D.C. (a 5-Star, 5 Diamond, Relais & Chateaux property) from 1992-93. He then spent two years at the 5-Star Four Seasons Hotel in Chicago before coming to work at the Maisonette under Chef Jean Robert deCavel from 1994-96.

PLEASE NOTE: The evening will benefit the Midwestern Culinary Institute as they attempt to raise money for a piece of state-of-the-art kitchen equipment for their students. Every ticket includes a cash donation toward MCI.
