Dallas chef Dean Fearing to be honored by Culinary Institute of America this spring
As a "Pioneer of American Cuisine" with Larry Forgione, Wolfgang Puck, Paul Prudhomme, and Alice Waters.
Chef Dean Fearing will be honored by The Culinary Institute of America this spring, as the organization presents its 2012 Leadership Awards Gala on March 29 in New York. Fearing will be honored as a “Pioneer of American Cuisine” and will be recognized alongside four of his culinary peers: Larry Forgione, Wolfgang Puck, Paul Prudhomme, and Alice Waters.
The New York gala is an annual scholarship fundraiser for The Culinary Institute of America (CIA), which for more than six decades has been setting the standard for excellence in professional culinary education. Its annual Leadership Awards celebrate the success and achievement of the food service industry's best, brightest, and most innovative.
Immediately following the New York gala, Fearing will head to Tokyo, where for one week he will temporarily recreate Fearing’s Restaurant inside another restaurant, the Towers Grill at The Ritz-Carlton, Tokyo. As part of its upcoming fifth anniversary celebration, The Ritz-Carlton, Tokyo will feature Fearing as its guest chef, and highlights from Fearing’s Restaurant and its menus will be presented at daily lunch and dinner there from April 2 to April 6. Fearing will be a visible fixture in the Towers Grill kitchen throughout that week and will interact with guests who are present for a rare and unusual Fearing’s-in-Japan experience.
