"My time at OCI changed my life. They don't just teach you how to cook, they enforce work ethic and integrity. When you leave OCI... You're more prepared than any other culinary grad." - Alvin Cailan, OCI Grad, Chef/Owner of popular LA eatery, Eggslut.
Alvin is seen here accepting his award for 2014 Los Angeles Rising Star Chef.— with Egg Slut.
