Chef Avram Wiseman is a highly experienced professional chef and culinary educator. Early in his career, he held an astonishingly diverse number of positions in a wide array of settings – Banquet Chef at the Tan a Tar Marriot, Chef Garde Manger at the Garden City Hotel, Executive Sous Chef of the kitchen at the United Nations, and Executive Chef at the Riverhouse Restaurant in New Jersey (where he earned 4 stars from the Asbury Park Press). Chef Avram is more than just a little familiar with the demands of the kosher kitchen, having served as the executive chef for Lederman Caterers in Queens, Kay Caterers in NYC, President Caterers in Long Island, and Paradise Caterers in Marina Del Ray in the Bronx. Chef Avram began teaching, his true passion, in 2000 at The Art Institute of New York. Over the six years he spent there, he earned a CHE certification in hospitality education and completed coursework in teaching methodology. Chef Wiseman was made Dean of Student Affairs at CKCA in September 2010 and taught the Professional Training Program in Culinary Arts as well as many of their recreational classes. We are extremely fortunate to have someone as knowledgeable, charismatic, and inspired as Chef Wiseman as the Dean of Student Affairs and Co-founder of Kosher Culinary Center.
