CREA: Leading a Culinary Revolution

Since 1991, CREA (Centre de Recherche et d’Etudes pour l’Alimentation, or “Culinary Research and Education Academy”) has been the definitive source for mastering the revolutionary sous vide cooking method. 

Established and led by Cuisine Solutions Chief Scientist Dr. Bruno Goussault, CREA has provided sous vide instruction to culinary stars such as Joël Robuchon, Thomas Keller and Daniel Boulud, as well as hundreds of restaurant operators and corporations around the globe.
