NUCU Partners with Multitalented Midwestern Chef Terry John Zila

Terry John Zila Chef PicSheboygan, Wisconsin –  NUCU®, a premium brand of cookware and bakeware by Wisconsin-based Vollrath Company, has announced a new partnership with top Midwest chef Terry John Zila. As a frequent contributor to many local and national TV shows, he is a familiar face to foodies in the Twin Cities.

With a naturally curious and inquisitive mind, Zila has pursued many interests throughout his life including food and design. In fact, he has been experimenting with food his entire life. His passion is to create sensory experiences for people, while embracing all cuisines from Asian to European and American. “My motto is to find a way to say yes and give people exactly what they want,” Zila explains.

NUCU premium cookware and bakeware are an ideal product line for Zila’s famous private dining and corporate events. “The material is professional grade, extremely well designed and easy to handle. With the many culinary hats I wear, I need equipment that offers me a lot of flexibility but is 100 percent reliable and produces consistent results,” he says. “I’ve found all I was looking for in NUCU for my cooking and baking needs.”

Zila currently runs Sel Et Terre, a monthly pop-up restaurant, and owns his own catering businesses Terry John Zila Catering and Johnjeanjuan. He’s been teaching culinary classes in the Twin Cities for over a decade, plus he’ll soon be launching his own conglomeration of food trucks, Big Dog Food Truck Company.

“As a Midwestern company we are excited to partner with a Midwestern chef who shares our values and appreciates the design and quality of the NUCU products,” says Jean Horvath, vice president of Custom and Specialty Products. “We can’t wait to see where Terry will take NUCU!”

The NUCU product line includes a carefully designed selection of stock and sauce pots, sauté and fry pans, as well as baking sheets and mats intended for the sophisticated home chef. The products are backed and inspired by the parent company’s many decades of experience in designing and manufacturing commercial product lines for demanding restaurateurs around the world.

NUCU is available for sale at nucu.com and at specialty retailers in Washington, New Jersey, Georgia, Iowa, and Wisconsin.
