IRVINE, CA – Gaggenau, the ultra-luxury brand for professional-grade home appliances and the ‘Official Home Kitchen Appliance Partner’ of the Michelin Guide, has announced the newly formed Gaggenau Black Jacket Society. Gaggenau has created this special recognition program in celebration of chefs whose restaurants have attained Michelin Guide status and who reflect the principles and philosophy of the Gaggenau brand.
“We are so pleased to launch this new program,” said Skyler Stevenson, senior product and marketing manager, Gaggenau U.S. “The members of the Gaggenau Black Jacket Society demonstrate our commitment to quality and hold us to their own extremely high standards of excellence.”
In 2022, Gaggenau will hold Black Jacket Society Events in four cities – Chicago, Washington DC, Los Angeles and New York. Chefs of Michelin starred restaurants, already holding 1, 2 or 3 stars, will be vetted and evaluated on their ability to reflect the essence of the brand as well as their culinary talent, cache and a commitment to classic elegance – both in their approach to cooking as well as life. Recognized chefs will receive a specially created black Bragard Professional Chef jacket, embroidered with their name and the Gaggenau logo. Each will be invited to participate in a variety of VIP Gaggenau programs and events around the country and will be highlighted on Gaggenau.com.
The following chefs were selected and inducted into the Gaggenau Black Jacket Society:
- Curtis Duffy, Ever Restaurant
- Grant Achatz, Alinea Restaurant
- Noah Sandoval, Oriole Restaurant
- Cesar Murillo, North Pond Restaurant
On April 5, 2022, Gaggenau hosted its first Black Jacket Society event in Chicago, at Chef Noah Sandoval’s restaurant, Oriole.
