A Toast to the Tastemakers: A Celebration of International Sous Vide Day

January 26, 2019 - 6:00pm to 9:30pm

Join Cuisine Solutions, the masters of sous vide, for a stunning, around-the-world tour of sous vide cooking.

About this Event  //  Celebrate International Sous Vide Day along with the birthday of the sous vide pioneer himself, Dr. Bruno Goussault. Both a cocktail and hors d'oeuvres reception and 4-course seated dinner with wine will let you experience the pure, complex flavors of US, French, and Thai cuisine (along with a few other favorites of Dr. Goussault himself) prepared using the technique of sous vide.

Additionally, the evening will feature a number of celebratory giveaways, including sous vide circulators and equipment, Cuisine Solutions Premium Sous Vide Cooked Products, Sous-Vide magazine subscriptions, and more. And, of course, each guest will receive a luxe, complimentary International Sous Vide Day swag bag.

All proceeds from this event will benefit Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP), a national nonprofit co-chaired by chef, author, and restaurateur Marcus Samuelsson. C-CAP educates and guides underserved high school students toward a bright future through chef mentoring, work experience, college advising, scholarships, and more.
