Last week I had the distinct pleasure of being in the company of three greats: BlueStar appliances, the Guy Gunter Home showroom and Atlanta-renowned chef, Ford Fry. BlueStar recently introduced its 36-in. Platinum Series Range, and the company wanted to show it off at this recently renovated Atlanta showroom. The icing on the proverbial cake was the demo cooking by Ford Fry, whose secret ingredient to making his steaks delicious is simply butter. A LOT of butter.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed sumptuous steak and scallops prepared by Fry and his team, and then we sat down with BlueStar Cooking and Prizer Hoods president, Michael Trapp, who told me about the new Platinum Series Range. It is now available in five widths and features PrimaNova burners, an interchangeable griddle charbroiler, full-motion grates and an extra-large oven with true European convection and a 1,850-degree infrared broiler.
The range is available in 750+ colors and finishes, and its new PowR Oven provides 40 percent faster preheating and a 30 percent increase in oven efficiency.

The Guy Gunter Home boutique showroom was a lovely space, having recently been renovated, and provides high-end appliances to the greater Atlanta area. The 5,400-sq.-ft. space features plumbing products, kitchen appliances and outdoor kitchen essentials from such brands as BlueStar, Sub-Zero, Wolf, Miele, Thermador, Toto, Rohl and Brown Jordan.
Ford Fry is one of my favorite chefs in Atlanta, and I am sad I have yet to dine in all of his restaurants. My favorites that I have been to so far are JCT Kitchen (right around the corner from me), The Optimist (where I went for a special birthday dinner) and The El Felix (this opened up in Alpharetta’s Avalon shopping center, and my boyfriend and I have been there too many times to count).
The event, hosted by BlueStar, was truly a delight. It was a joy to learn about their new range, to see the updated Atlanta showroom and to feast on some of the tastiest food I have ever had. For more information, please visit: www.bluestarcooking.com.
