Over 250 special guests tasted first-hand the “Gourmet” chef for Gourmet girl Magazine, and got to meet Elaine and Lou, this dynamic couple from New Jersey. Cru's Executive Chef Brian Roland's creations for the Magazine Launch wowed all, with the freshness and beauty of his culinary delights, with a seven course tasting, in appetizer sizes.
