At Hestan, we believe collaboration is the heart of the kitchen. Hestan Commercial proudly partners with Chef Thomas Keller, Bocuse d’Or Team USA and The Culinary Institute of America. From the kitchen to the classroom to the world stage, these partners are elevating the culinary experience.
Chef Thomas Keller
Chef Thomas Keller serves as brand ambassador for Hestan Commercial and Hestan Home. His culinary insight has been an invaluable inspiration for the Hestan kitchen. We are especially honored that Chef Keller has installed Hestan in his celebrated restaurant kitchens, including Per Se, The French Laundry, Bouchon Yountville and The Surf Club Restaurant. Our collaboration continues to drive new innovation inspired by Chef Keller’s kitchens.
The Culinary Institute
The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) is equipping its campuses with Hestan Commercial. This partnership is especially meaningful to us, as many of the renowned chefs who helped inform the design of Hestan Commercial studied at the CIA. We are excited that today’s aspiring chefs will rely on the powerful precision of Hestan as they perfect their sauces and soufflés. The new Hestan Kitchen made its spectacular debut in 2018 at the CIA at Copia. The Hestan Kitchen offers serious foodies the opportunity to cook alongside CIA chefs with the same revolutionary culinary power and performance found in America’s most acclaimed restaurant kitchens.
