Here at Cuisine Solutions, we always knew that our chief scientist, Dr. Bruno Goussault, was a visionary. But now, we’re excited to share he’s receiving worldwide recognition for his innovations in the field of sous-vide. Dr. Goussault was recently named one of the world’s 100 greatest living visionaries as part of the Albert Einstein Legacy Project’s Genius: 100 Visions of the Future initiative. Genius sought to bring together the world’s greatest thinkers and innovators in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Einstein’s game-changing Theory of Relativity. Mission accomplished.
Dr. Goussault joins a prestigious list of fellow recipients, including spiritual leader Deepak Chopra, architect Frank Gehry, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, film producer/director Sir Ridley Scott, Microsoft cofounder Paul Allen, former New York City mayor and philanthropist Michael Bloomberg, and Nobel Laureate in Physics Dr. Steven Chu, along with many other Nobel Laureates and luminaries.
Dr. Goussault is a pioneer of modern sous-vide cooking and he is without a doubt a visionary. As the founder and leader of the Culinary Research & Education Academy (CREA), he has trained and inspired more than 80 percent of chefs with three Michelin stars, including Thomas Keller, Daniel Boulud. Yannick Alléno, Joël Robuchon, and Anne-Sophie Pic. When he began his career as a food scientist more than four decades ago, Dr. Goussault strived to transform the culinary scene with his cutting-edge sous-vide technique.
To make those strides, Dr. Goussault says he always considered himself a scientist first and foremost.
“The chef is an artist,” he explains. “Me, I am a scientist.”
Dr. Goussault did indeed revolutionize the industry, and today he’s focused on sharing his acquired knowledge with the next generation of talented chefs through his work at CREA.
As part of the Genius project, Dr. Goussault will also contribute to an accompanying book project. Genius: 100 Visions of the Future will be the world’s first 3D-printed book and feature the visions of the 100 greatest innovators, artists, scientists, and thought leaders of our time. The limited edition publication, conceptualized by world-renowned designer Ron Arad, is shaped like a bust of Albert Einstein and will be a celebration of this generation’s visionaries. We can’t wait to read Dr. Goussault’s contributions to this landmark book project!
We hope you’ll join us in congratulating Dr. Goussault on his impressive achievement! We look forward to sharing more about this honor in the coming months. Stay tuned.
