Miele cooks me dinner during the Architectural Digest Home Show in NYC

The Architectural Digest Home Show
blows into NYC with vigor 

Over the years many design industry trade shows have grown and prospered, but if you have to choose just one to attend I say stop into the AD Home Show.  Not only are you shown a plethora of state of the art products, but the MADE section highlights artisans and hand made products as well.  The adjacent art show brings a whole other focus to the event, and it's all topped off with lovely tablescapes designed by stylists and interior designers for various design industry companies, while profits are for a non-profit cause, DIFFA's Dining By Design.  It's an all-in-one show where one goes to get inspired as well as see new products. One of the exhibitors at the show this year was kitchen appliance company, Miele.  They were busy offering up tasty treats to visitors at the show. Somehow they still found time to host our group in their showroom at the A&D building to cook us a delicious meal.

I was invited to tag along with Modenus and Blogtour NYC (a special blending of lifestyle bloggers from England, Europe and the US) this year during the events surrounding the AD Home Show.  You may have seen my post a couple weeks back of the flowers I arranged for the Blogtour Welcome Dinner at Barbes restaurant. 

The group swept through NYC over the week-long design inundation,
and one of the most extraordinary evenings was when Miele generously cooked us dinner on their appliances.  Not only were we taught how to cook on their state of the art products, but their in-house chef, Adam Schop, gave us an informative tutorial about cooking and entertaining, showing us tricks of the trade while he whipped up our dinner.  Chef Adam Schop cooked our dinner on the Miele 36" Induction Cooktop number KM5773

After a busy day of running around NYC,
this evening was relaxing for us while Miele's staff generously pampered us
with champagne, delectable treats and and vibrant  space to enjoy our dinner. 
Their showroom has been newly refurbished.  
This gave us a chance to get involved with the ovens,
and try out their cook tops.

Bloggers have all the fun!

This was the best lamb chop I have ever had,
and on top of a bed of eggplant tapenade - 
it was the highlight of the evening! 

for a very special evening of food, wine and laughter!
Stop back at the end of the week for more inspirations
from the
AD Home Show

the Miele showroom is located at
the Architect & Designer
 building in NYC

Miele is best known for it's vacuum cleaners
but they make world-class kitchens,
from cook tops to counter tops. 
The showroom at the A&D building shows
a modern, sleek set of kitchens in a state of the art space.

Thank You
