Last week it was the Thermador Gallery & Training Center in Scottsdale, Ariz., where we hosted our Steamy Soiree blogger event. Twenty food bloggers from all over the country were in attendance as we unveiled for the first time ever the Pro Grand Steam Range, Thermador’s most crowning achievement to date.
That was the main event, but there was plenty more fun throughout the rest of the trip. We kicked the day off with a presentation on Thermador’s heritage before seguing into a hands-on lunch preparation.
After a relaxing lunch half of us attended a roundtable discussion on various trends in the cooking world, and the other half listened in to our very own Chef Brad Petersen discuss the many uses of grains in cooking.
Chef Brad could talk for hours about grains, and everyone would be captivated. He even has his own TV show about it on the BYUtv network.
The purpose of the event for Thermador was to connect on an even deeper level with the food-blogging community, a powerful and influential link to the cooking-enthusiast audience the brand covets. This is the second blogger event Thermador has hosted in as many years, and adds to its relationships fostered at various food-blogging conferences (BlogHer Food, IFCB).
We couldn’t have been more pleased to host such a wonderful group of people. Here’s the entire list of attendees, and scroll down for more photos!
