For this recent workshop with Cuisine Solutions, the global sous vide experts, we invited a number of Chefs from properties that have large banquet space, since the product can assist with menu innovation and improve labor needs. Chefs were able to work with Cuisine Solutions R&D and Culinary Chef teams to learn more about the products, process, and potential benefits for their properties.

Chef participants included:

  • Chef Andres Bustamante – Corporate Chef
  • Chef Tim Graham – Corporate Chef
  • Chef Ron Paredes – Exec Sous Chef – Grand Hotel Mackinac
  • Chef Evan Davis – Exec Chef – Marriott Little Rock
  • Chef Alex Reyes – Exec Chef – The Don CeSar
  • Chef Phillip Jackson – Exec Chef – Newport Harbor Island Resort
  • Chef Glen Urso – Exec Chef – Westin Indianapolis

We can’t wait for the next event!
