Cuisinart Sponsors Second Season of “Avec Eric”

       

       

STAMFORD, Conn.—Cuisinart is continuing its sponsorship of the PBS series “Avec Eric,” which has begun its second season.

Hosted by Eric Ripert, chef at Le Bernardin in New York City and judge on the Bravo network’s “Top Chef,” the show has three segments in each episode: a behind-the-scene look at Le Bernardin’s kitchen; food tasting and exploration around the world; and a culinary lesson given in Ripert’s own kitchen. During this season, Ripert will introduce viewers to City Harvest, a food rescue organization in Manhattan.

Mary Rodgers, director of marketing communications for Cuisinart, called “Avec Eric” “very much in line with Cuisinart’s philosophy regarding cooking, creativity and culinary education.”
