Stamford, CT, December 2008 – Cuisinart, the company that introduced America to the food processor, has been selected as a 2008 Ava Awards Gold Winner for its recipe widget.  The Cuisinart widget provides home cooks with access to the company’s entire recipe database, and consists of multiple applications, including video recipes and the ability to email the widget to friends.


The Ava Awards, sponsored and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals, recognizes outstanding work by companies and creative professionals involved in the concept, writing, direction, shooting and editing of audio-visual materials and programs.  Entrants included video and film production companies, web developers, advertising agencies, PR firms and corporate and government communication departments. The Gold Award is presented to entries that exceed a high standard of excellence and serve as a benchmark for the industry.  Only about 14 percent of the more than 2,200 entries from the United States and several foreign countries were Gold Winners.


Cuisinart’s recipe widget entry provides home cooks with access to the company’s extensive recipe database, and offers 26 video recipes featuring both master chef Hubert Keller and chef and author of The Wine Club, Maureen Petrosky.  Cuisinart will continue to add new video recipe material in 2009 to expand the offering for consumers. In addition, the company’s widget can be sent to friends with the click of a button and allows users to send ingredient lists or full recipes to smartphones or mobile internet devices for convenience in the grocery store.


“Cuisinart already has an established, multi-faceted website and we are committed to continuing

to build on its technological foundation with cutting edge services for our consumers,” says Mary Rodgers, Director of Marketing Communications for Cuisinart.  “Our goal is to provide our customers with the latest tools to help make their lives easier in the kitchen.”  She adds, “The company’s new recipe widget engages consumers and perpetuates the sense of family and community that customers have come to expect from Cuisinart.”
