The following day, we were greeted at the Thermador Experience & Design Center by Zach Elkin, where we enjoyed a delicious breakfast, tour of the showroom and learned about the array of Thermador luxury cooking and refrigeration appliances. Here is my friend and fellow designer, Julia Buckingham as she is greeted by Zach. The highlight of the day an interactive cooking lunch, led by Thermador Chef Kyle Jakobi.
Yummy, these were so good!
Aren’t these tiny little skillets the cutest things ever?
OK, oink, oink, so I was a pig, I had to try one of everything!
After breakfast, we toured the showroom and learned about the appliances from Graham Sadtler, who is a product designer for Thermador. The showroom has several kitchens designed to show case the Thermador appliances in an active environment. The kitchens range in design aesthetics from traditional to contemporary. It is interesting to see how many ways their appliances can but designed to create custom options to suit any cooking style. If you live in the Irvine area, you should make an appointment to visit or take clients who are considering Thermador appliances. One trip to the Thermador showroom and they will be sold! The showroom is 17,000 sq feet. Anything and everything Thermador makes is here for all to experience.
The back of the showroom features a cooking theatre, where Thermador Chef Kyle Jakobi cooks on the Thermador appliances and educates consumers and designers visiting the center.
It kinda feels like the set of a fancy cooking show. The theatre features beautiful cabinetry, top notch Thermador appliances and ample space to allow a team of 11 designers to cook.
back to my original post here. It’s not only pretty, it makes cooking food so much faster
and more evenly.
Look at the yummy looking turkey cooked by the Thermador steam oven. The beauty of this oven is how quickly it can cook and how moisture is held in the foods cooked in it. Breads, meats and other items are cooked to perfection in a steam oven. The the good news is the learning curve for cooking with a steam oven is quick and easy, so anyone can master it rather easily plus it takes up so little space in your kitchen.
Chef Kyle believes in using the highest quality and freshest foods available.
“Feast your eyes on the feast we prepared” under the direction of Chef Kyle of Thermador!
