Kellogg's® is putting a twist on the signature dishes of world-renowned chefs Thomas Keller and Daniel Boulud. For one night only, select guests experienced an exclusive six-course tasting menu of recipes recreated with cereal at Kellogg's NYC.
To entice diners and tempt their taste buds, Kellogg's NYC brought together a team of professional chefs, some of whom recently worked together to win Bocuse d'Or, the most prestigious culinary competition in the world. Chefs Mathew Peters and Travis Swikard were tasked with using Kellogg's cereal to recreate famous dishes by chefs Thomas Keller and Daniel Boulud. In addition, chef Harrison Turone from Team USA was on-site to join in this culinary experience. Together, these chefs were not only the first team of Americans to win Bocuse d'Or, but they're also bonded by mutual support for ment'or, a nonprofit that inspires excellence in young culinary professionals.
"I'm excited to see my fellow ment'or chefs re-create my well-known dishes using a favorite breakfast staple, cereal. You don't have to be an award-winning chef to get creative in the kitchen and think about food in unique ways," said Boulud.
"We're celebrating the techniques and creativity of some of the world's greatest chefs," said Anthony Rudolf, co-Owner of Kellogg's NYC, founder of Journee and former director of operations at Thomas Keller Restaurant Group "We'll give guests a chance to experience cereal in a completely new way."
The participating chefs' recipe creations reflect their impeccable palates and creativity for transforming any ingredient – even cereal – into something elevated. Dishes include:
Chilled Carrot-Ginger Soup
Coconut Cream, Kaffir Lime, Kellogg's Froot Loops®
Kellogg's Corn Flakes® Infused Custard, Black Truffle and Cherry Relish, Celery, Kellogg's Special K® "Chive Chip"
