It’s easy to support us when you shop at Amazon! Just go here and you’ll see that you’re supporting the “International Culinary Tourism Institute” which is our official legal name. It doesn’t cost you a thing, and our Association receives a donation of 0.5% of everything you spend (no expiration date so be sure to bookmark this URL for every time you shop at Amazon). Thank you!



We are registered in the USA as a 501 (c) 3 certified non-profit educational institution. That means we are eligible to accept cash or product donations and issue a tax credit letter, which US individual and businesses can use to reduce a federal tax obligation. Non-US businesses and individuals can still donate – consider your donation as a business expense which may help to reduce your tax obligation. Ask your accountant the best way to optimize your giving.


We have a couple of big projects on our plate. To make them happen, we need outside investment. Both projects are technology-based. We’re used to working with angel investors and organizations and we understand the angel/VC investment process. If this might be of interest, please get in touch.
