A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to jaunt across the U.S. of A. to attend the Thermador and Traditional Home Great Kitchens Blogger & Designer Event in Irvine, California.

I have worked with the wonderful people at Thermador for the recent kitchenette in the Traditional Home High Point Showhouse.  The opportunity to get to know the brand was a true treat and an investment in my ability to help clients properly choose their appliances to best suit their needs based on innovation and quality as well as aesthetics.

We were wined and dined across the southern Cali coast.

And a first look at the intro for KBIS 2016….Thermador is introducing undercounted refrigeration drawers.

These are a special innovation for their ability to adjust the temperature for different food types.  These are so much more than the drink fridge of days past.

It was then on to the plating contest. We were paired with other attendees and cooked a portion of our lunch.

We learned so much, met new friends and talked shop for a wonderful 48 hours that concluded with a gorgeous dinner and sunset at The Deck in Laguna Beach to say farewell to Thermador.

What possibly impressed me the most was the dedication to product that Zach Elkin, Beatriz Sandoval and so many more showed.  They love their careers and it shows.
