“A recipe has no soul. You, as the cook, must bring soul to the recipe.”
– Thomas Keller

Brian G.

Director of Research & Development, Quaker Oats Company

“We had become stagnant in our product development effort, and our idea-generating process was not generating any new ideas. That's when we asked Culinary Systems to get involved. Their excellent culinary skills and practical product development knowledge allowed them to demonstrate concepts and prototypes that quickly became part of our product development program. We currently have several products in advanced development that are a direct result of Culinary System’s involvement. I know we will be working with Tony and his team in the future.”

Tom T.

Vice President, Nestle Food Service

“I can always rely on Culinary Systems, led by Tony Lagana and his team of culinary professionals, to deliver innovative, customer-correct products that exceed everyone’s expectations. Fast commercialization is our goal and they get us there.”

Ted B.

Vice President & General Manager, Barnes & Noble Cafes

“We asked Tony Lagana and Culinary Systems to design our new proprietary panini sandwich line. There were a large number of functional requirements for the finished product line, as well as operating restrictions within our cafes. Tony and his team met or beat our deadlines, truly over-delivered on program documentation, and, most importantly, created panini recipes that are now generating profits well in excess of plan for our café group. We will use Tony again!”
