DeGustibus Cooking School Unveils New Kitchen Sponsored By Miele and Caesarstone

Salvatore Rizzo and Martha Stewart In the DeGustibus School’s new Kitchen

 Martha Stewart was on hand last night for the unveiling of the new kitchen at the DeGustibus Cooking School which is located on the 8th floor of Macy’s Herald Square location. Seen here with the school’s Owner/Director Salvatore Rizzo, they were joined by a room full industry related professionals ranging from professional chefs, to architects, to designers and journalists. Several of the evenings  attendees were chefs who have taught at the school.

Preparing food for the guests by the new appliance from Miele
Founded in 1980 by Arlene Feltman Sailhac, who was also on hand and addressed the crowd, the school has a list of over a thousand chefs who have shared their secrets with the students who attend, including but not limited to Emeril Lagasse, Tyler Florence, and Wofgang Puck. With a history of recognizing and showcasing world class talent before they are a household name and an open enrollment, it seems to me like a course of classes here would be the unlitmate gift for any right foodie. The foods cooked and served are coupled with wines that make the perfect accompaniment, and emphasizes and promotes the importance of the professional sommelier.

The kitchen has been updated to include the latest cooking equipment from Miele, including sleek induction cook tops and state of the art convection ovens. The clean minimalist design of Miele works very well in the contemporary kitchen styled for the school, but the appliances are equally gorgeous in traditional kitchens. Miele products are well know for their stiking design, as well as their efficiency and precision.

The counter top is by Caesarstone, and appeared to be the recently introduced Belgian Moon, although the room was so full of nervous onlookers it was hard to to get close in. Like all Caesarstone this surface gets high praise for it’s anti-microbial properties, heat and scratch resistance, and general ease of maintenance.

Many thanks to White Excellent’s Sherry Qualls and Julie McCrary for the invite!
