Industire Gastronomique Cascajares is a Canadian company inspired by Spanish culture. In 1994, two young Spanish business men, Alfonso Jimenez and Francisco Iglesias had an idea. In their early Twenties they wanted to offer a high-end product that would help chefs by decreasing their preparation time in the kitchen. They started with a slogan: Queremos ser tu cocina ayudante (we want to be your helper) and the company focused on ways to provide Chefs prime cuts of meat and rare delicacies that could be prepared quickly to perfection. Their success was imminent and over the years, their range of products expanded as they became requested by Chefs all over Western Europe.
Fifteen years have gone by, and success has brought them to North America. They have set their sights on St-Hyacinthe, a small city between Montreal and Quebec city. They launched their Canadian company Le Chef et Moi and are sharing Spanish expertise using their ''Sous-vide'' cooking method.
