Cooking Secrets from the CIA

Show Summary

There is something unique about the Northern California wine country. Among its best-kept secrets is the Culinary Institute of America (yes, that's a CIA for short). At the instutute, master chefs give lessons to trainees. In 1995, Canada's Knowledge Network began producing a series of cooking programs with the CIA and another secretive group, Marjorie Poore Productions. The result was Cooking Secrets of the CIA, which ran five years on American public television. Guides for this and several other Marjorie Poore cooking series (including Cook-Off America, Seasonings with Dede Wilson and Master Class at Johnson & Wales) would not have been possible without the good grace of Jeff Moss, the son of Cooking Secrets of the CIA's first director.
