True was honored to pair with the James Beard Foundation for another intimate evening at the James Beard House in New York City. As the official house purveyor of refrigeration, True commercial units outfit the kitchen, and True Residential undercounter units are used for wine, food, and beverage storage throughout the house. We were honored to hold our fourth annual dinner at the Beard House on March 18, 2015 where guests were taken through the newest products from True then treated to a exquisite meal.

Chef Kevin Nashan and his team prepared an impressive menu of items inspired by dishes from Nashan's two St. Louis restaurants, Sidney Street Cafe and The Peacemaker Lobster & Crab Co. Guests were left wowed and the evening was finished with a surprise dessert from former True Executive Chef Vincent Brunetto. 

Below are some highlights from the evening.
