Christina Hendricks and husband Geoffrey Arend recently installed a 30″ Matte Black ILVE range with brass accents into their NYC apartment, acting as a functional centerpiece for the celebrity couple.

“Space is at a premium in our small NYC apartment and unfortunately our kitchen is the size of a coat closet. We needed the power of a professional range and also wanted something beautiful, because whatever was there would always be viewable from the living room. When we found our black and brass ILVE, we knew it was the only stove that would make us both happy. Now anytime we have company, everyone asks about it. It looks dynamic in our Deco kitchen and it never fails to impress while cooking. It’s truly become a centerpiece for not just our kitchen but also our apartment.”‎ – Christina Hendricks and Geoffrey Arend

Christina Hendricks is best known for her role as Joan Holloway in the AMC drama television series Mad Men, for which she was nominated for six Emmy Awards. Her husband, Geoffrey Arend, currently plays speech writer Matt Mahoney on the hit CBS drama Madam Secretary.

Vent-A-Hood Receives Patent

Press Release: Vent-A-Hood Patent: Another patent was awarded to Vent-A-Hood – this one for the ARS ductless hood
Published by Vent-A-Hood, December 2, 2016

holdinguppatentVent-A-Hood has some of the oldest and longest-standing patents in range hood ventilation from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Over the decades, the company has become something of an expert in the leadership position and design requirements it takes to earn a patent. Today, that includes its newest patent for the Air Recovery System (ARS) Duct Free Range Hood.  While ductless hoods have been on the market for some time, Vent-A-Hood vowed not to manufacture a ductless range hood until a design met its high standards for collecting cooking contaminants and cleaning the air to the best of abilities. The 4-phase cleaning system of the ARS duct free hood was the product that finally reached Vent-A-Hood’s high engineering standards — and, likewise, the unique recognition of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. In a recent ceremony, the official patent was presented by CEO Miles Woodall III on a plaque to Bob Seloff, Vent-A-Hood engineer, for his instrumental role in developing the ARS line.

Utilizing a proprietary 4-phase technology, Vent-A-Hood®’s ARS series is ideal for light residential cooking where venting is not possible. They’re powerful, quiet, efficient, easy to maintain, and, because they’re duct-free, they offer unlimited design freedom.

Vent_A_Hood_ARS_REVISEDWhile conventional ductless hoods return contaminants into the kitchen, a duct-free ARS Vent-A-Hood® is in a different class of kitchen ventilation systems. The 4-phase ARS process systematically eliminates contaminants, reclaiming the air and returning it clean and fresh into the kitchen.

  • Phase 1: Active canopy technology effectively captures cooking vapors
  • Phase 2: Centrifugal grease extractor removes grease from air stream
  • Phase 3: Massive activated carbon bed has 50 times more exposure than conventional ductless hoods
  • Phase 4: High efficiency micro-filter uses interception, impaction and diffusion process to capture even minute smoke particles

Contemporary kitchen with stainless steel and wood unitsAnd because the 4-phase kitchen ventilation process works so well, your home interior, including furnishings and fabrics, stay cleaner and last longer, allowing you to continue cooking and entertaining in your home for years to come.

Like all Vent-A-Hood® systems, the ARS kitchen ventilation is made in the USA and offers the quality, craftsmanship, and performance you’ve come to expect from the company that invented kitchen ventilation. We work hard to live up to our reputation as the most respected name in home ventilation. So, not only do we make sure you get better air, we guarantee you get great value.

From 1950’s To Today’s Trend

Blog Post: ILVE Transforms A 1950’s Kitchen Into An Entertainment Destination
Published by EuroChef, November 29, 2016

after-island2-1024x768In Houston, Texas the heart of a 1950’s ranch was transformed into a beautifully designed entertainment destination with the help of a 48” ILVE Majestic range.

Designer Vi Khanh Hoang, who specializes in custom renovations that are adhered to the client’s lifestyle, renovated the kitchen within the footprint of the original home. She was able to incorporate the existing structure of the kitchen with an open and functional layout for entertaining friends and family.

“The dimensions of the kitchen stayed the same, but the layout had significant modifications,” explained Vi Khanh Hoang. “We removed two walls and relocated range and refrigerator to different walls. We added a large island, a coffee/drink area, a prep/sink area, and a cooking area.”

screen-shot-2016-11-29-at-11-13-08-am-1024x381The kitchen was inspired by the classic and clean trend mixed with a warm cottage feel that is popular in interior design today. A 48” Matte Graphite ILVE range with brass trim helped to bring these styles together while still meeting the personal need for a powerful cooking appliance.after-range-wall-1024x768

“We wanted a professional range that had an old world feel with today’s convenience. This range had high BTU’s, rotisserie function, warming drawer, glass on the oven door, beautiful brass hardware and could be customized. And it was just simply gorgeous!”

More About Moscato Wine

Moscato d’Asti is expanding in popularity among wine enthusiasts for its lighter, sweeter flavor profile and lower alcohol content (5 to 8% abv). Known for its blend of sweet peach, orange blossom and nectarine flavors, Pink Moscato is typically created from Muscat Blanc grapes, possibly one of the oldest cultivated varieties in the world.

It dazzles wine enthusiasts with its aromatic fragrance, light fruit-forward palate, and spritzy character as a frizzante. Wine expert Stacy Slinkard describes its appeal as such. “Moscato’s inherent aromatics are simply stunning – orange blossom, honeysuckle, almonds, ginger and ultra expressive fruit dominated by green grapes, citrus tones and ripe peach nuances. From pear and apple, to orange and lime with consistent appearances in the ripe, juicy peach and apricot category, Moscato’s flavors are extraordinarily fruit-filled. The delicate cascade of bubbles, light body and sweet surprise culminate to woo and win many unsuspecting palates to the wide world of wine.”

caliber-holiday-potatoes-fullThis is a great easy and delicious recipe to bake in your Caliber range for the holidays. Wash and peel the potatoes.

Layer the potatoes in a baking dish with salt, white pepper and fresh grated Romano cheese until the pan is full. Cover with heavy cream 2/3 of the way up the pan, using approximately 1/2 quart or more depending on the size of your dish.

Ingredients:
