Winner of the Pasta World Championship 2018


The Head chef at Terzo Piano restaurant in the Art Institute of Chicago is the first ever Female Chef crowned Master of Pasta since the creation of the competition.
"I'm truly honored, I did Italian my way", said Caroline Diaz who also strongly believes that women are taking over in fine cuisine and that’s time that their work gets recognized around the world. Carolina grew up in a large Mexican family living in Chicago and learned how to balance flavors from her father's cooking. After a few years working as a line cook, Carolina decided to explore Italian cuisine in 2012 to eventually join the Terzo Piano team at the Art Institute of Chicago in 2016 as Chef di Cucina. Carolina's talent lies in using local, organic and sustainable products to cook delicious Mediterranean dishes with a Midwestern twist.
