Cuisinart Renews Sponsorship Of Avec Eric PBS Cooking Series

Cuisinart today announced its continued sponsorship of the Emmy award-winning series, Avec Eric, hosted by Eric Ripert, chef of New York City’s Le Bernardin and judge on Bravo’s Top Chef. The 13-episode series is shot in HD, on-location, and is distributed by American Public Television in 90% of U.S homes, according to Cuisinart.
“Avec Eric is an outstanding public television series that is very much in line with Cuisinart’s philosophy regarding cooking, creativity and culinary education,” said Mary Rodgers, Director of Marketing Communications for Cuisinart. “The company is thrilled to support a show that brings viewers inside the professional culinary world while simultaneously exposing them to different cultures and sources of inspiration they can incorporate into their own cooking style.”
Each episode of AVEC ERIC contains three segments: a behind-the scenes look at the famed kitchen of Le Bernardin; food tasting and exploration around the world; and an intimate culinary lesson given from Ripert’s own kitchen. In this last portion of the show, Ripert translates the inspiration he garnered throughout the travel portion of the episode into delicious dishes that home cooks can replicate themselves.
In season two – which began airing in October – Ripert will tour rich areas of food creation and production including Colonnata, Italy where he’ll taste the world’s most famous lardo; Urbanna, Virginia where he will sample soft shell crabs; and Grand Cayman, where he will fish with local fishermen while in town for Cayman Cookout, an annual culinary event that he hosts.
Ripert will introduce viewers to the inner workings of City Harvest, a food rescue organization near and dear to his heart, which is located in Manhattan, and will venture out of the city to visit the Culinary Institute of America in Poughkeepsie, New York and Satur Farms in North Fork, Long Island.
“I grew immensely as a cook during my travels for the first season and I find that my creative process is ever-evolving,” says Ripert. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to continue challenging myself by exploring new destinations and different cultures, and bringing the viewers with me on my journey to show how great food doesn’t have to be complicated.”
