Latest in kitchen appliances

Recently, I was among the lucky eighteen kitchen designers invited to attend an event at Summerhill LCBO given by Thermador to introduce their new Steam & Convection Oven. A fabulous lunch was prepared with step-by-step instructions by Chef Cory Vitello from Toronto's The Harbord Room, using this unique appliance. I have a Thermador wall oven with microwave and warming drawer in my own kitchen and absolutely love it.

Here's a photo of Chef Cory Vitello preparing to start the meal.

Here I am totally absorbed in tasting the first course. That's me in the animal print top. I had a chance to chat at length with my table mate, guest Monica Schnarre, successful Canadian model (seated at the end of the table).
