ALEXANDRIA, Va., Aug. 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The world's leading nonprofit member organization for cybersecurity professionals, formerly known as (ISC)², has today announced that it is now ISC2 to reflect its growing global membership and expanded role in strengthening the influence, diversity and vitality of cybersecurity professionals around the world.

Coinciding with the rebrand, ISC2 is proud to unveil its newly revamped website, designed to embody inclusivity and cater to a diverse global audience. The reimagined website provides individuals the opportunity to easily access tailored resources to fuel their professional development journey. These milestones coincide with ISC2 announcing that its community has grown to more than 500,000, a significant achievement for the association, which was founded in 1989 as a certification body for the cybersecurity profession.  

Since 2020, ISC2 has experienced record growth in its global community through its focus on attracting more people from diverse backgrounds into the profession, supporting their career growth and advocating for their interests worldwide.

A cornerstone of this growth is ISC2's One Million Certified in Cybersecurity initiative that commits to building a diverse and skilled cybersecurity workforce pipeline and shrinking the global workforce gap of 3.4 million professionals. Since launching 11 months ago, ISC2 has enrolled more than 250,000 individuals in the Certified in Cybersecurity entry-level certification training and more than 310,000 as ISC2 Candidates. Other growth drivers include ISC2's strong commitment to advocacy and diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) to provide a voice for ISC2 members and the cybersecurity profession among policymakers around the world, as well as to improve the accessibility of cybersecurity careers.

Originally founded to develop a program and common body of knowledge for the certification of cybersecurity professionals, ISC2 has expanded its range of offerings to meet the needs of its diverse and global community. ISC2 is equipped to support professionals throughout their careers with lifelong learning, as well as advocate for the continued growth, ethical best practices, and health of the profession.

Our brand has to represent that mission for both our current and future membership, embodying the inclusive, global association we are today. Our research shows that more than half our members call us ISC2 already, so the transition is already happening," said Andrew Woolnough, EVP Communications, Content and Brand, ISC2. "Our guiding principles have been to take the core of ISC2's market-leading certifications and create a brand identity around them that speaks to inclusion and accessibility. We are reinforcing that through our redesigned website, which promotes more inclusive language and imagery, makes it easier for candidates and members to find what they are looking for, and removes friction at critical points in their journey.

Killexams : 10 Tips for Networking Successfully as a Professional Working From Home

Working from home has become a popular trend in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, and it has significantly impacted how professionals network.

However, Sallie Krawcheck said “Networking has been cited as the number one unwritten rule of success in business. Who you know really impacts what you know.” Networking remains vital, even when you can’t do it in person.

The usual networking events and face-to-face meetings were replaced by virtual platforms, which require different strategies to achieve networking success. This article will provide 10 tips for networking successfully while working from home.

1. Set Goals and Objectives

Before starting any networking activity, set goals and objectives that align with your career aspirations. Determine what you want to achieve through your networking and how you can leverage your contacts to achieve your goals.

“Networking goals may include job searching, developing new business opportunities, gaining industry insights, or learning from successful professionals,” said Andrew Mavis, CEO of 98Strong. “Once you have set your goals and objectives, create a plan for achieving them. Consider the types of networks you need to join and the events you need to attend, as well as the people you need to connect with, so you can be as effective as possible.”

Keep in mind that many networking goals are beyond your control — you can’t know how others will respond to your content or messages. It’s better to focus on metrics that track your inputs and how much effort you apply rather than the end results for your career.

2. Attend Virtual Networking Events

Virtual networking events have become the norm, and attending them is a great way to meet new people in your industry, even if you won’t be face-to-face. Virtual events may include anything from webinars and online conferences to social media networking groups and LinkedIn groups.

“Attending these events provides an opportunity to learn from these experts and gain valuable knowledge and skills that can help you advance your career,” said Raja Subramanian, GM of Power Wizard. “Events often focus on specific topics, giving you an opportunity to learn about new trends and best practices in your field. This can help you stay up-to-date on the latest developments in your industry and position yourself as a thought leader.”

These events also provide an opportunity to connect with industry leaders, peers, and potential clients. With the proper preparation, you’ll expand your knowledge base, stay current on industry trends and developments, and discover new opportunities.

3. Leverage Social Media Platforms

Social media is an excellent tool for networking while working from home. Platforms like LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook can help you build your professional network, connect with industry experts, and showcase your skills and expertise.

“When using social media for networking, start by creating a professional profile. From there, you can start to engage with others and share relevant content, especially if you join industry-specific groups,” said Andrew Chen, Chief Product Officer of Videeo. “Social media also provides a platform to reach out to potential clients and establish thought leadership, which can help you build credibility in your industry.”

Every platform has a unique angle and varying levels of professionalism. Still, you’ll want to keep your content clean and relevant no matter where you post, and always think two steps ahead.

4. Build Meaningful Connections

Networking is not just about exchanging business cards and making small talk; it’s about building meaningful connections. However, while working from home, it’s easy to feel isolated and disconnected from others. That’s where engaging with members of your network can come in handy.

“Building authentic relationships with your network can help you feel more connected and create opportunities for growth,” said George Fraguio, Vice President of Bridge Lending at Vaster Capital. “When connecting with someone new, take the time to get to know them. Who knows, you may find that what you offer is exactly what they need.”

Follow up with them regularly, share information that may be useful, and keep the conversation going. This will help you build trust and rapport, which is crucial in networking.

5. Be Authentic

Authenticity is key to successful networking while working from home. When you’re not meeting someone face-to-face, it can be tempting to put up a façade and try to be someone you’re not. However, this will only lead to a lack of trust and credibility with your network.

“A lot of online networking efforts can appear inauthentic, as people try to appear perfect,” explained Max Schwartzapfel, CMO of Fighting For You. “However, be yourself and let your personality shine through. Be honest about your strengths and weaknesses, share your experiences and stories, and show genuine interest in others.”

Being your true self will help you build meaningful connections and establish yourself as a reliable and trustworthy professional.

6. Offer Value and Support

Networking is a two-way street. To build and maintain strong connections, you have to offer value and support to your network. You could do this by sharing useful resources, introducing them to someone in your network, or providing helpful advice.

“By offering value and support, you show that you’re invested in the success of your connections, and they are more likely to reciprocate in the future,” stated Jason Zhang, CTO of Tapin.GG who is an expert in gaming skills like elo boost. “Even if you’re not an established figure in your industry, you can provide useful insights that help others on their journey. Don’t just sit on the sidelines and be a spectator. Get in the game and let the world know what you bring to the table.”

Remember, you don’t need to be an influencer with millions of followers to provide value in your area of expertise. Someone will find your information helpful as long as it’s authentic and original.

7. Be Visible and Engaged

One of the challenges of networking while working from home is staying visible and engaged in your industry. To overcome this challenge, stay active and engaged on social media platforms, attend virtual events, and join relevant groups.

Shaun Hinklein, Head of SEO at Ramp who offers a virtual corporate card says, “With so many professionals working remotely, it can be challenging to stand out from the crowd and get noticed by potential connections. Keep your face and name in the spotlight by posting content frequently and interacting with others in your sphere. This shows that you’re dedicated to your craft, and you’ll make connections organically over time.”

By being visible and engaged, you increase your chances of being noticed by potential clients or industry leaders. It also gives you a chance to showcase your knowledge, skills, and expertise.

8. Follow Up Consistently

Networking is not a one-time event — it requires consistent follow-up to maintain and strengthen connections. Digital networking is 24/7, so your ability to follow up will pay off in the eyes of employers and potential business allies.

“When you meet someone new or connect with them on social media, follow up within a few days to express your appreciation for the connection,” suggested Leroy Hite, Founder and CEO of Cutting Edge Firewood who sells different types of high quality firewood. “Reach out regularly to stay top of mind and to check in on how they’re doing. As long as you aren’t being overbearing, your efforts will likely be well received.”

This will help you build a stronger connection with your network, making it easier to reach out to them in the future when you need their help.

9. Develop Your Personal Brand

Developing a strong personal brand is important for networking while working from home. Your personal brand is how you present yourself to the world and what people remember about you.

“A strong personal brand communicates your unique value proposition and expertise, and it shows that you have a personality,” Christian Kjaer, CEO of ElleVet Sciences said. “It also helps you stand out from your competition and attracts the right connections to your network. Think about the long game for gaining recognition and influence.”

To develop your personal brand, consider your strengths and skills, define your values and mission, and create a consistent online presence that aligns with your brand.

10. Be Proactive and Take Initiative

Networking while working from home requires a proactive mindset and taking the initiative to reach out to potential connections. Don’t wait for opportunities to come to you; instead, take the initiative to seek out new connections, attend virtual events, and engage with others on social media.

“Be strategic in your approach and focus on building connections with people who can help you achieve your networking goals,” said Ryan Rottman, Co-Founder and CEO of OSDB. “By taking the initiative, you demonstrate your commitment to your network and your willingness to go above and beyond to build meaningful relationships.”

Initiative is an underrated part of networking and all things in business. Push beyond your comfort zone and spark a conversation or connection, even if you don’t feel 100% qualified.

Network Successfully From Anywhere

Networking from home can present unique challenges and opportunities. With the rise of virtual events and online platforms, it is now easier than ever to expand your network and build meaningful connections from the comfort of your home.

As Diane Helbig said, “Networking is an investment in your business. It takes time and when done correctly can yield great results for years to come.”

By following these tips, you can expand your network, build meaningful relationships, and achieve your networking goals from anywhere in the world.

Killexams : 10 Tips For Nurturing Professional Relationships Even When You're Busy

"Build your network" is common advice given to professionals looking to find new jobs, make major business moves and succeed in their careers. But when the busyness of life and work sets in, it can sometimes be difficult to build and then nurture those relationships so they maintain their strength over time.

Without these relationships, you may miss out on potential opportunities or connections that could play an important role in your future success. To help you find the balance needed to manage both your network and your personal life, 10 members of Young Entrepreneur Council offer their top advice for maintaining professional relationships while also prioritizing your personal ones.

1. Prioritize A Small Number Of People

As with all things in life, networking should be done intentionally. If you are busy, focus on keeping in touch with a small group of people whom you believe can add value to your development and provide you with opportunities. Schedule meetings or calls on a regular basis and always keep them in mind. Send them an article. Tag them in a post. Share information that they would be interested in. Make sure they know you are thinking about them. - Zane Stevens, Protea Financial

2. Join The Right Groups

I join high-level mastermind groups that typically meet six to eight times per year. If your time is limited, that amount is pretty much all you need when you are part of the right groups. These groups typically communicate via Facebook or a similar platform throughout the year. The people that are worth staying in touch with will make the time. But the reason I like these types of mastermind groups is because in those six to eight days of the year, you are doing most of the networking you will need to skyrocket your business. - Philip Smith, PJP Marketing

3. Block Time On Your Schedule

Trying to build, nurture and maintain a network can feel like a full-time job in and of itself. You’re not only busy running a business and maintaining a healthy work-life balance, but you're also scheduling meetups to strengthen professional relationships—it can be a lot to juggle. But those connections you make can impact your life and business for years to come. What was a simple introduction a year ago could turn into a valuable opportunity today. You might meet a lifelong mentor, a business partner or a like-minded friend. Just as you would with anything else important, schedule in time for networking activities and industry events. Block out time once a month where you attend an event, reach out on a video call or meet at a local coffee shop. Even just 30 minutes goes a long way in nurturing network relationships. - Blair Thomas, eMerchantBroker

4. Leverage The Efficiency Of Technology

Leverage technology to maintain connections efficiently. Schedule virtual coffee chats via Zoom or Microsoft Teams, use video conferencing for meetings and stay engaged with your network through social media platforms or professional networking sites. - Kristin Kimberly Marquet, Marquet Media, LLC

5. Meet Up When Traveling

Spend some time engaging with your network on LinkedIn all day. Sometimes a small comment in support of somebody will keep you top of mind. I also make a point to see people when I travel, so I always check before traveling to see who I know in a city, contact them and set something up to meet in person. You might as well take advantage of the fact that you're in the same city to meet up. People will appreciate this. And, always encourage them to contact you when traveling to your city. Letting people know you're always open to meet is half the battle. - Andy Karuza, NachoNacho

6. Contribute To The Community

The best way to maintain and nurture network relationships is by contributing to the community. Professionals often tend to seek benefits from their network, but they're laid back when it comes to giving something back to the community. With this frame of mind, they may be able to grow their network at the start, but it would be difficult for them to maintain their connections. So, it's great to share something of value from time to time and be a giver for the community. It'll be a win-win for all and help you ensure fruitful relationships in the long run. - Stephanie Wells, Formidable Forms

7. Turn Your Personal Passions Into Opportunities

Your personal passions can be networking opportunities. If you love working out, get a gym membership and have some business cards on hand for those inevitable chats that happen. This applies to any activity you might be passionate about. You may want to supplement by getting into the habit of sending out a few invites on social platforms each day as well. Use the platform where you are most active to do this. Don't supply up if there is no action right away. Keep up with your hobbies and invites, and make sure you have something to offer, as it is not a one-sided ask. Know what you can supply in a conversation, not just what you want to get. - Tyler Bray, TK Trailer Parts

8. Focus On Small Gestures

You don't have to do a lot to actively maintain a network, especially when you're busy. Just try to make small gestures like leaving a comment or sending a quick note. Anything to let people know you're thinking of them goes a long way. Small gestures are far more effective than making effusive overtures after gaps in communication. Focus on engaging in small ways time and again and this will keep your network alive. - Syed Balkhi, WPBeginner

9. Call To 'Just Say Hi'

Navigating a busy schedule and maintaining a network can seem challenging, but it can be managed effectively with "Just Saying Hi" calls. Use your driving or commuting times to personally connect with your network. Pick up the phone, no agenda, just to check in and see how they're doing. This seemingly simple act brings a personal touch to a digitally saturated world and keeps relationships warm. In an era when people crave genuine connections but are often hesitant to initiate, you'll not only stand out but also strengthen your bonds. - Devesh Dwivedi, Higher Valuation

10. Make It Part Of Your Everyday Actions

I've found the best way is to incorporate networking into my everyday actions. Scrolling through LinkedIn? I like, share or comment on stuff people from my network posted—any interaction does the trick. I'm texting my wife? I haven’t talked to John in a while; let's ask him what's up. I just read an interesting article? I’ll share it and get a debate going. Someone tells me about a professional issue he has? Well, I know just the person to solve it, so I'll make the connection. If you're not used to networking this way, just start training that muscle and, eventually, it'll come naturally. - Idan Waller, Bluethrone

Killexams : 5 expert tips for shaping your hedges like a professional

When it comes to landscaping and lawn care,  there is nothing better than seeing your hedges looking uniform, tidy, and perfectly shaped. And if you’ve tried, (but failed!), to perfect your hedge, you can learn a few expert tips for shaping your hedge like a professional.

As well as creating divisions and offering a little backyard privacy, a neatly shaped hedge adds to the overall aesthetic or curb appeal to your home. And if you’re selling up, a great hedge can even boost the value of your property — and ensure top dollar. That’s why it’s always handy to know how to shape hedges the right way, which will also make the task quick and easier.

Of course, this also depends on other factors including what type of hedges you have, size and thickness of the branches, or the tools you decide to use. However, there are some basic tips that can help you nail the look of your hedge like a pro.

We ask our expert for their top tips on shaping a hedge — so you can craft the best-looking hedge in the neighborhood.

Before you start, beware of these 7 mistakes to avoid when trimming a hedge.

1. Buy the right tools

Just like all gardening jobs, you’ll need to invest in the best tools to get the task done properly. These include having one of the best pruning shears to cut back smaller twigs and trim hedges, and hedge shearers to tackle larger hedges.

To begin, you need to have the right tools. This includes hand shearers, and hedge shears which help to prune and shape larger bushes,” says James Williams, gardening expert at Property Rescue. “Loppers will help you to cut through those thicker branches that hand shearers can’t get through. And finally, it’s wise to wear safety gear like goggles to protect your eyes from any falling twigs. Investing in quality tools might seem like an expense at the time but they’ll last longer and provide a better cut compared to older and cheaper tools.”

You might also want to check out a pair of one of the best gardening gloves to protect your hands, and make the task easier.

2. Shape at the right time of year

Another expert tip is to know the best time of year you can shape or trim a hedge.

“Pruning and shaping your hedge isn’t just about getting out there and doing it when you fancy," states Williams. "You need to know exactly what time of the year is best. Typically, this is either late winter or early spring before the hedge has started its next growth spurt. By pruning at this time of year, you’re removing unnecessary twigs and encouraging strong and healthy growth.”

However, if you have a particular hedge that regularly blooms flowers, experts advise you to hold out on shaping it. “You’ll need to wait until after they’ve finished flowering so that you don’t impact next year’s crop. Do your research into what sort of hedge you have, and that way you can make a better-informed decision.”

Generally, other hedge types including box, privet and viburnum should have a thorough trim during late winter, followed by regular pruning. These are fast-growers, and usually the best for easy sculpting.

3. Prepare for the clean-up first

Before you even start to work on your hedge like a professional, it’s always a good idea to prepare for the messy clean-up afterwards. Trimming a hedge in particular can get incredibly messy, and tidying up can be a time-consuming chore.

There are some useful tools and accessories that can help make the task quicker and easier. You can place a ground cover or tarpaulin beneath the hedge area, which will contain all the leaves, stems and debris in one area. Once you’ve finished shaping your hedge, simply roll it up to easily transfer to your garden waste bags or transport to your compost heap.  You can also use a leaf blower to quickly direct your waste into one area or pile, so it's not everywhere.

Multi-purpose tarpaulin such as this Heavy Duty Poly Tarp ($24, Amazon), can be used to easily collect dead leaves and debris in the fall when you’re raking leaves.

4. Shape from bottom up

Man trimming a hedge

If you’re wondering why you’re getting patchy or dry areas in your hedge, maybe your technique is all wrong. Rather than shaping a hedge from top to bottom (or side to side), you should always shape from the bottom to the top. This is because most hedges tend to widen at the top, where they receive the most sunlight. As a result, this shades the lower part of the hedge, stopping it from getting the much-needed nutrients from the sun.

When it comes to trimming and shaping hedges, it should always be done from the bottom up,” advises Williams. “That way you’re ensuring that the bottom of your hedge gets enough sunlight and can use these nutrients to grow well.”

What’s more, if you spend all day shaping the top of your hedge into a uniform rectangle, there’s no need to worry. “Lots of people try to shape their hedge into a perfect rectangle, but this will cause it to dry out and will result in patchy areas within your hedge. Ideally, you want to try and make the top of your hedge narrower than the bottom - again so that sunlight can be fully absorbed by every part of your hedge.”

Typically, it’s recommended to keep your hedge width a minimum of about 3 feet, while the height should ideally be kept at about eye level to make your hedges easier to maintain. Another top tip is to aim for a sloping effect of a 6 inch difference between the top and bottom to allow maximum sunlight to get to the hedge.

5. Pruning your hedge often

Although you might only tend to your hedge if it’s looking messy or unkempt, it does require regular maintenance to keep it looking pristine. It’s recommended to trim any signs of overgrowth at the bottom of the hedge to ensure it stays healthy. What’s more, this will prevent signs of disease, or becoming a haven for pests.

Regular maintenance of your garden hedge will ensure it’s looking its best. Even if you think you’ve got the perfect shaped hedge, an overgrowth can soon occur. Privet or boxwood hedges grow very fast so usually need to be shaped and pruned every six weeks. Additionally, even if your hedge doesn’t need shaping, you should try to remove any growth from the bottom regularly to encourage healthy growth and prevent the risk of pests and diseases.”

Experts also recommend encouraging flowers or shrubs at the bottom of your hedge to help aid pollination. In particular, primroses and knapweed are great for providing nectar and pollen for bees and other beneficial insects.

Killexams : Improve your professional and public speaking skills with these tips

Speaking in professional environments can be daunting, especially for beginners in the workforce. At the same time, you can be further into your career but uncomfortable starting at a new company. 

Though a workforce veteran, you may find it intimidating to introduce yourself in large groups, give speeches or be vocal about necessary changes as the newcomer.

Whether you're offering a company-wide speech, introducing yourself one-on-one or participating in a team building activity, having strong professional speaking skills will get you ahead and get points across.

Here are some tips to achieve A+ professional speaking skills.

There are going to be many instances throughout your career – to pitch an idea, supply a formal presentation or participate in an interview – when you are going to have to talk in front of your peers and management. (iStock / iStock)


  1. Practice on your own
  2. Prepare, prepare, prepare
  3. Watch public speakers you admire
  4. Maintain eye contact
  5. Record and learn from yourself
  6. Practice good voice control
  7. Radiate confidence

1. Practice on your own 

If you're truly nervous about public speaking, one of the best ways to get comfortable with it is to practice on your own. While it may feel like child's play to talk to yourself aloud, the method works. 

Practicing a speech before it happens will allow you to understand and alter your body language, make necessary changes to your speech and prepare your mind for what you'll look like in front of others. Often, the most intimidating part of public speaking is standing on a stage alone. Get used to the idea by envisioning yourself on stage while in an empty room.

Ahead of meeting with a boss, employee or major stakeholder, prepare points you'd like to discuss and discuss them aloud to yourself. This will help you choose whether the structure of the conversation flows well and develops a point.

Additionally, include your spouse, family member, roommate, neighbor or anyone who is willing to listen once you feel comfortable by yourself. This will allow you to become comfortable in front of another person and receive feedback on your topics.

2. Prepare, prepare, prepare

For any type of professional discussion, you'll want to prepare. Whether it's a 30-minute meeting with your manager or an eight-hour event you'll be speaking at, you'll need to prepare. Anytime people are taking time out of their schedule to meet with you professionally should begin with preparation. Your time is valuable, as is theirs, and you won't want to waste either parties time. 

However, the level in which you prepare will vary depending upon the type of conversation or meeting you're to have. For example, if you're meeting with a coworker, piece together a simple agenda ahead of the call. In doing so, you'll have a plan in place for the flow of discussion. If you're both professionals when it comes to planning ahead, you'll each have an outline and the meeting will be full of constructive insights.

For something more grand like an event you're giving a speech at, you'll want to prepare something much more extensive. Create an outline and provide yourself a flow for topics. For example, if you're attending a financial planning seminar and speaking on 401k plans, begin with defining a 401k, employee contributions, company contributions, penalties, etc.

How detailed you dive into each section will depend on factors like the timeframe set aside for your speech, questions from the audience, etc.

Even if you are working from home, professional speaking skills during all of your meetings are a necessary skill to have. (iStock / iStock)


3. Watch public speakers you admire

Watching and listening to other professionals is a great way to learn from them. Often, other professionals will discuss successes and failures from the past. Ideally, you'll learn from these instances without having to experience the same failures.

Put together a list of your favorite professionals in or out of your chosen industry. Success and failure stories happen to everyone, not just those on the same career path as you. So, you could benefit from hearing from others outside your industry. 

Find podcasts, videos, seminars, etc. they've produced and listen in. Take note of their body language like hand gestures, tone of voice, eye contact, how they involve or interact with a crowd and how they introduce themselves. Then, take note of your gestures in the same way and try to mirror the ones you prefer.

4. Maintain eye contact

When talking to someone one-on-one or in a group, make sure you are making eye contact while you are speaking. This is both respectful and professional. It also shows confidence in what you are saying.

During an event where you are speaking to a crowd of people, be sure to take a look around the room as a whole and try to make eye contact here and there with audience members. Acknowledging the entire room vs just a section of it will be important to keep your audience engaged.

5. Record and learn from yourself

Learning from others is great, but be aware of the lessons you can learn from yourself, too. 

Record yourself speaking and take a look at the video once you've finished your speech. Pay attention to your eye moment and your focus on the entirety of the room, your hand gestures and your tone of voice.

Is your voice shaking or confident? Are you fidgeting with your fingers? Are you nervously combing through your hair or playing with an object?

You'll be able to relay quite a bit to yourself by recording your preparation.

6. Practice good voice control

Though speaking in a professional environment can be nerve-racking, you'll want to appear confident with the tone of your voice. If you are giving a speech, asking your boss for a raise or pitching an idea to a superior, a quiet voice, constant use of filler words and a nervous tone won't deliver confidence.

You can develop good voice control by practicing speaking skills yourself or with other people. The more you practice, the better you will become. Take deep breaths before speaking, speak slow and gather thoughts before vocalizing them and prepare your mind ahead of time.

7. Radiate confidence

Be confident! Know your worth, pull from your strengths and be confident in the message you want to deliver. 

If you aren't confident in yourself, you'll find challenges in getting superiors or coworkers on board with your message. As you continue your career or force yourself to professionally speak more often, you'll become more confident with time. Make sure to make yourself uncomfortable.

Jan Birnbaum

Jan Birnbaum

When Catahoula opened its doors along with oversized wood-burning ovens in the early ’90s, Jan Birbaum’s inventive American restaurant with a Louisiana flair spiced up the sleepy town of Calistoga, CA. Today, the restaurant is a wine-country institution that integrates intense, bold flavors and subtle, more refined cuisine on a single menu.

His food reflects a wide range of regional cooking experiences with his focused culinary training. As a disciple of Louisiana’s culinary headmaster, Paul Prudhomme, Jan’s career began with four years at K-Paul’s, where he cultivated his expertise for down-home cooking. From this rustic low-country base, he then moved to the world of fine dining at New York’s Quilted Giraffe, Denver’s Rattlesnake Club, and San Francisco’s Campton Place.

In COOKING WITH MASTER CHEFS, Jan displays both sides of his palette as he demonstrates his Home-Smoked Salmon and Scrambled Egg Tort, Louisiana Sassafras Leg of Lamb, Potato Salsify Pie, and a delicate Citrus Gratin.

Patrick Clark

Patrick Clark

Attempting to make luxury cuisine a little more accessible, Patrick Clark created his own version of “Contemporary American Cuisine” by combining unusual – and sometimes esoteric – edibles and preparations with common comfort foods. The Bush’s were so impressed by his work at The Hay-Adams Hotel in Washington D.C. that they made an unsuccessful attempt to woo him away from his civilian fans and into the White House in the early ’90s.

After training in culinary schools and European kitchens, Patrick had numerous traditional culinary role models, including his chef father. While respectful of these influences, he remained dedicated to exploring his own creativity in the kitchen. Patrick built a national reputation, working his way from New York to Los Angeles and back again to Manhattan, where he last worked at the esteemed Tavern on the Green.

In COOKING WITH MASTER CHEFS, Patrick Clark dramatically presents a Roulade of Salmon with a deconstructed Gazpacho Sauce and pairs his signature Horseradish Crusted Grouper with his crowd-pleasing Mashed Potatoes.

We are privileged to have Patrick’s segment included in COOKING WITH MASTER CHEFS, as his career ended prematurely in 1998 when he died of heart failure – a loss to both the culinary community and his loyal following.

Applying balance to kitchen artistry, Robert Del Grande began captivating his Texan clientele in 1981 at Café Annie with his approach to Southwest American cuisine. Robert combines varying flavors and textures by balancing hot with cold and crisp with creamy. These innovative techniques promoted him to the top of Houston’s culinary community.

Primarily self-taught, Robert’s career started in Houston when he picked up a few shifts at his in-laws’ restaurant between his Ph.D. in biochemistry and post-doctorate work. He found his niche and never looked back. In 1992, he opened the Rio Ranch and was saluted by high-profile culinary organizations including James Beard, Nation’s Restaurant News, and Restaurants and Institutions for his imaginative, well-composed plates.

In the early ’90s, when chef Amy Ferguson-Ota began incorporating Hawaii’s edible resources into the center of her plates, tourists and locals alike realized that Hawaiian restaurants had more to offer than tiki torches and umbrella drinks. This native Texan, who trained at Le Cordon Bleu before becoming the first woman chef at the Ritz-Carlton Mauna Lani, became known for her remarkable specialties, folding Hawaiian ingredients into Southwestern preparations using French culinary techniques.

A call from the mainland brought her to Dallas, where she opened Baby Routh restaurant, but the “Aloha Spirit” got the best of her. She returned as the chef of the Hotel Hana in Maui and remains active in the “Hawaii Regional Cuisine Group,” promoting relations between the island’s premier food producers and its chefs to advance Hawaii’s cuisine.

In COOKING WITH MASTER CHEFS, Amy shows off some of her favorite local specialties, from Puna Green Papaya Salad to Wok-Seared Ono.

Emeril Lagasse

Emeril Lagasse

“Bam!” Emeril Lagasse, a man with his own spice mix, “Essence of Emeril,” has captured America’s attention by storm with his crazy Cajun/Creole cooking and his top-rated TV shows. This Massachusetts native stumbled upon his passion for rustic low-country crawdads and crab boils after spending many years training in refined restaurants throughout France and the northeastern region of the U.S.

Enthusiastically immersing himself in Louisiana culture, Emeril began combining classical culinary practices with local fare as the chef of Commander’s Palace. His following grew when he opened his own restaurants in New Orleans, Emeril’s and NOLA, and continued to expand with his various satellite restaurants in Las Vegas, Nevada and Orlando, Florida.

Acknowledged for his achievements as a chef, cookbook writer, and television host, the culinary community appreciates this northern transplant as much as the rest of the country.

In COOKING WITH MASTER CHEFS, Emeril, with the intensity of his namesake seasoning, walks us through the basics of Shrimp Étouffée and a Louisiana Boil.

Susan Feniger, Mark Sue Milliken

Feniger and Milliken

Recognized for their bold cuisine and their spicy personalities on the show Too Hot Tamales, Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger continue to demonstrate that a woman’s place is in the kitchen – the professional kitchen that is. After entering the culinary world in the late ’70s, they both trained in male-dominated French kitchens in the States and abroad, where they individually honed their traditional French culinary skills.

They met up and collaborated in Los Angeles on two restaurants, first City Café and then CITY, experimenting with ethnic cuisine from Thailand and India. Straying from the familiar flavors of France, Mary Sue and Susan continued to move around the world until they honed in on Mexico and Central America at Border Grill, creating authentic fare with an upscale flair.

The twosome’s popularity has grown beyond L.A.’s borders with two TV programs, a radio show, four cookbooks, and numerous prestigious awards in their field.

In COOKING WITH MASTER CHEFS, Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger demonstrate their unique recipes from Curry of Spinach and Eggplant to Thai Melon Salad, and supply away a few professional tips on maintaining a clean and efficient kitchen as they go.

Bridging a path from his native French culture to “Nouvelle American Cuisine,” Jean-Louis Palladin merged traditional ideas with progressive culinary innovation for over 18 years on the ever-changing menu at his namesake restaurant in the famed Watergate Hotel.

Praise was nothing new to Jean-Louis – he had been honored as the youngest chef to earn two Michelin stars (at 28 years-old) for his restaurant, La Table des Cordeliers, before heading to the States in 1979. Now, with forty years of experience, he is a pioneer in the emerging culinary scene in Las Vegas, where his kitchen tackles sophisticated food with down-to-earth, old-country techniques at his restaurant, Napa.

On the show COOKING WITH MASTER CHEFS, Jean-Louis shows his range as he converts his fireplace into a cooking source for a roasted duck and serves a rich foie gras with delicately poached apples.

Charles Palmer

With a dedication to sourcing the finest locally farmed ingredients, a command of the finest French cooking techniques, and a knack for surprises, Charles Palmer opened his New York City restaurant Aureole at the ripe old age of 28. He has been “wowing” his fans ever since.

Trained at the Culinary Institute of America and in kitchens throughout Europe, Charles was first recognized in the early ’80s for his unique style at The River Café in Brooklyn, where he kicked the ratings up from one to three stars in The New York Times. Since then he has created a small restaurant empire with locations in New York and Las Vegas, developed an award-winning Dairy Farm that produces cheeses and butter, and, of course, penned a notable cookbook that captures his restaurants’ signature dishes on paper.

From the subtle flavor layering in his Pepper Seared Venison Steaks with Pinot Noir and Sun-dried Cherries to his elaborate Chocolate Tarragon Dessert presentation, Charles Palmer presents us with recipes that play up to all of our senses in COOKING WITH MASTER CHEFS.

Jacques Pepin

Jacques Pepin

Chef, instructor, author, and TV personality, Jacques Pépin has brought exacting French culinary techniques down to earth for his loyal American following since 1976, when he released his step-by-step cookbook, La Methode.

This native Frenchman is now one of the most influential culinarians in America for both expert and amateur chefs, offering insight into professional techniques and tricks of the trade. Developing an interest in his parents’ restaurant and continuing with official training in his hometown’s Grand Hotel de L’Europe as well as the Plaza Athénée in Paris, Jacques seemed destined to become a masterful chef.

His varied career path has included service as the personal chef for three heads of state in France, working for Howard Johnson’s as the Director of Research and Development, and taking time off to write his James Beard Award-winning cookbooks. All this experience has helped further his success as he has integrated his classic culinary know-how into a variety of circumstances outside of the traditional restaurant business.

Equally charismatic in front of the camera and in the kitchen, in COOKING WITH MASTER CHEFS Jacques Pépin shows us how to triumph over the intimidating challenges of puffed pastry and fluffy soufflés. Jacques’ most accurate collaboration with Julia Child is their video series and companion cookbook, JULIA AND JACQUES COOKING AT HOME.

Michel Richard

Michel Richard

Disputing the common misconception that French cuisine means fat, butter, and cream, French-born Michel Richard has been translating his native cuisine for a Californian clientele at his Los Angeles restaurant Citrus since the mid-’80s.

By relying on vegetable purees, sauce reductions and herbs, his dishes yield great flavor and substance without the fat. After first striking gold with a fan base of fitness-conscious foodies in L.A., he then cleared a path for his next three restaurants, all named Citronelle, in Santa Barbara, California, Washington D.C., and Baltimore, Maryland.

While much of Michel’s success can be attributed to his culinary calorie cutting, he hasn’t completely forgotten the merits of butter and cream that he learned through years of pastry training back home. A believer in moderate indulgence, Michel clearly still has a place in his heart for chocolate as he chooses to demonstrate two dessert favorites, the Chocolate Dome and Hot Chocolate Truffles, for his segment in the show, COOKING WITH MASTER CHEFS.

Nancy Silverton

Nancy Silverton

When loaves of soft white bread stocked bakery shelves and bagels were the biggest breakthrough in breads, Nancy Silverton brought our culinary attention to the soul-satisfying pleasures of artisan baking. She and her chef-husband opened the doors to La Brea Bakery in conjunction with their restaurant Campanile in 1989 after finding no one in the Los Angeles area capable of supplying them with the flavorful crusty loaves that they had sampled in Europe.

Trained at Le Cordon Bleu, Ecole Lenotre, and some of L.A.’s most reputable kitchens, Nancy had become head pastry chef at Spago in the late ’80s, but still yearned to make good bread.

Nancy immersed herself into starters, yeasts, and doughs, and quickly became L.A.’s leading lady of bread baking. Now, she supplies fresh, rustic loaves to L.A.’s finest restaurants and frozen par-baked loaves to supermarkets throughout the nation.

In COOKING WITH MASTER CHEFS, Nancy Silverton demystifies the art of bread baking with a demonstration of her starter, a few focaccia snacks, and an olive loaf.

Andre Soltner

Andre Soltner

The year 1961 was a big one for French cuisine in America. The Kennedy family dined on it in the White House, Julia Child wrote about it in her first cookbook, and André Soltner cooked it up for New York’s elite as the new head chef of Lutèce.

This young Alsatian chef was among the first to cultivate America’s taste for the art of fine cuisine. Over four decades, André remained true to his impeccably executed classical menu, churning out exquisite food while training generations of future chefs in his highly disciplined kitchen. It’s not surprising that he has been consistently showered with high praises and awards recognized around the world.

Fortunately, COOKING WITH MASTER CHEFS has captured some of his hometown specialties from his Lutèce Cookbook as he demonstrates Tarte Flambée and Alsatian Meat Stew on the show.

Jeremiah Tower

Jeremiah Tower

Offering unique and daily-changing menus at Berkeley’s Chez Panisse in the early ’70s, and later at his own San Francisco gem, Stars, Jeremiah Tower became a crusader for “California Regional Cuisine,” which emphasizes the use of locally grown ingredients to elevate simple dishes to fine delicacies. He began his rise to culinary stardom without any formal culinary training to his name, instead relying on his basic common sense, appreciation for great food, and unshakable confidence.

In the program COOKING WITH MASTER CHEFS, Jeremiah gets down to basics, showing some simple but elegant poultry preparations in the oven, with a Casserole Roasted Chicken, on the stovetop, and over the grill.

Alice Waters

Alice Waters

In 1971, long before many Americans had developed a taste for spicy arugula greens and earthy chanterelle mushrooms, Alice Waters opened her revolutionary restaurant Chez Panisse, committed to menus that celebrate the best-tasting, finest-quality, and, sometimes, most exotic products found each season. Falling in love with farmer’s markets while visiting France, Alice’s modest training began when she experimented in her own kitchen with the fresh flavors of just-picked organic produce.

Back in the states, Alice found few sources for the high-grade ingredients to which she had become accustomed, so she worked with farmers, ranchers, and fishermen to forage for the best they could provide. The world became her market. Named “Best Chef in America” in 1992 by the James Beard Foundation, she and her cookbooks, the Chez Panisse Menu Cookbook and Chez Panisse Vegetables, continue to earn supreme praise.

Chef, activist, and teacher of sustainable agriculture, in COOKING WITH MASTER CHEFS Alice Waters shows the simplicity of creating masterpieces from seasonal ingredients with her Beet, Blood Orange, Walnut, and Rocket Salad and a medley of shaved fennel and mushrooms.
