Artusi, KitchenAid make Good Food & Wine Show debut

A pleasing response.

ILVE has been a sponsor of the national Good Food and Wine Show (GFWS) for six consecutive years but for the first time, Eurolinx put the spotlight on its Artusi appliances.

“The Artusi outdoor range – barbecues, refrigerators and sinks – performs well but we want to get the name out there,” marketing manager, Daniel Bertuccio told Appliance Retailer. “We will be introducing a new wok burner later this year to complete the range that offers matching aesthetics in black. Matte black and stainless steel variants are under consideration.

“Consumers want their appliances to be stylish without compromising on performance and for their outdoor alfresco area to complement their indoor kitchen.”

ILVE wine fridges were also on display at the stand. The Princess Cruises Theatre, where local chefs and restauranteurs performed live cooking demonstrations, was presented by ILVE.

KitchenAid also made its debut at this year’s GFWS, having historically been involved in the Cake Bake and Sweets Show.

An opportunity to showcase its iconic stand mixers, wide array of attachments and the new Bake Assist microwave oven, marketing director, Filiz Bensan said the brand wanted to connect back to the ‘foodie’ consumer and a greater variety of customers – not just bakers.

“The show provides a great format. At both the Melbourne and Sydney instalments, the response was exceptionally positive and we were pleasantly surprised,” she told Appliance Retailer.

“We are fortunate that the KitchenAid brand resonates really well with customers. Our stand attracted consumers to our attachments display, including those who already own them and those looking at their next attachment purchase. They were eager to ask questions and interact with the product, in particular the spiralizer and vegetable cutter, as they are both very unique.”

KitchenAid was also host to a Culinary Academy with hands-on cooking demonstrations presented by Sammy from My Kitchen Rules Season 2.

Shriro had its Everdure by Heston Blumenthal barbecues on display as chefs from the Fat Duck Group plated up complimentary dishes to attendees. “We received a lot of interest from consumers who had a look at the range then lined up for food cooked on the barbecues,” communications manager, Sandra Cal told Appliance Retailer. “We are really pleased with the positive feedback.”

Utah’s Park City a feast for eyes, belly

In an old Utah mining town that has turned into a mountain resort, you would expect a healthy dose of burgers, skillets and other eat-and-get-back-out-there fare. Park City has all that. But thanks to relentless development and investment — including Vail Resorts’ 2014 acquisition of the local ski mountain — dining options run the international gamut, including tapas, sushi, nouveau American, Indian, Italian and (who would’ve guessed?) Australian cuisine, fueled by a surge in visits by skiers from Down Under.

Some of the best finds are borne of passionate local restaurateurs and inventive young chefs, most of whom come for the same reasons you do: to revel in the two world-class winter sports resorts and 400 miles of summer trails in the surrounding Wasatch Range.

If you were going to find a 100-year-old miner anywhere in Park City, it might be milling on the steps outside Riverhorse Provisions (riverhorseprovisions.com; 435-649-0799; 221 Main St.), which still flaunts the 1904 stone-and-wood facade of the onetime miner’s favorite Imperial Hotel. Linger with that hope for a minute, then shift up to the second-floor gourmet market and cafe for a coffee — from Caffe Ibis of Logan, Utah — followed by brisket hash (with polenta bites, poached egg, spinach and crispy jalapeno), breakfast poutine (cheese curds, red onion, fried egg and sausage gravy) or the top-selling spinach tortilla wrap, filled with sausage, cheddar chipotle cream and farm-fresh scrambled eggs. Riverhorse Provisions is the brainchild of Seth Adams, executive chef and co-owner of Riverhorse on Main, a fine-dining establishment a few blocks down Park City’s historic central street.

The 50-seat dining room at the Silver Star Cafe (thesilverstarcafe.com; 435-655-3456; 1825 Three Kings Dr.) is like a really hip grandma’s kitchen, with weathered wood paneling, farmhouse shelving, exposed beams and a guitar (that anyone can play) hanging on the wall. The patio, steps from a ski lift and mountain bikers’ Armstrong Trail, affords views that stretch 25 miles to the Uinta Mountains. Owners Jeff and Lisa Ward, who met while waiting tables at the adjacent Deer Valley resort in the 1980s, opened the Silver Star Cafe in 2010 to nurture their love of food and music. (The evening slate from Thursday through Saturday is heavy on acoustic and jazz performers.) Top lunch choices include a burger crafted from a blend of brisket, short rib and hanger steak, pizza topped with whole clams and white sauce, and a seared trout salad on a bed of romaine, roasted corn, grape tomatoes, avocado and more. For accompaniment, audition the private-label tempranillo (some proceeds help a nonprofit organization that provides art therapy for kids), a Hop Rising double IPA by Salt Lake City brewer Squatters or a single-barrel bourbon from local distiller High West.

You could probably eat light at the Farm (wapo.st/the-farm; 435-615-8080; 4000 Canyons Resort Dr.). That grain salad, I’m sure, is packed with locally grown finery. But here’s a better plan: Stroll past the hydroponic herb garden in the entranceway to either the refined-yet-rustic dining room (natural wood accents abound) or the patio yurt with views of the ski hill, and summon a margarita with Milagro Silver tequila and ginger-and-sage syrup. Next: a charcuterie board, featuring four varieties of salumi from Salt Lake City-based Creminelli Fine Meats, housemade red pepper relish and grilled bread. After a bowl of oxtail onion soup — from meat braised in veal stock for six hours — you’ll understand why the Farm, in Park City Canyons Village, was tagged as one of Utah’s 25 best restaurants.

Relax: You’re not done yet. Round up with German chef Manny Rozehnal’s herbed spaetzle (truffle, caramelized onions, crispy shallots and black chanterelles), a Utah-raised red trout (rutabaga, green pepper, butternut squash and kale pesto) or lamb rack (curried Israeli couscous, golden raisins, tomato braised chickpea ragout and green onion). Rozehnal emphasizes local, humanely raised, and sustainable ingredients in his dishes, all cushioned by a 200-bottle wine list and an engaging, knowledgeable staff.

Sebring Historical Society hears about pottery family business

Art “Skip” Grindley

<!–
–>

SEBRING — Art “Skip” Grindley recently spoke before an audience of the Sebring Historical Society. Members were told of the history of his family’s pottery, Grindley China and Dinnerware. He said that in 1932, Art Grindley Jr. started his artware business with $1.16 to his name in his father’s cellar making figurines. The small business grew from those humble beginnings reaching great success. Grindley Jr. needed to build a new pottery building, hired three of the best European designers and employed more than 175 employees at one time. His wares soared to popularity before 1947 when import tariffs were high and Americans refused to buy figurines from Asia.

Like many of the potteries, Grindley’s lost a lot of business when the pottery burned to the ground in 1947. Later Grindley relocated in Zanesville, working for the Shawnee Pottery. His success grew again and he continued to enjoy his career.

During the talk Art Grindley showed a stagecoach which took 38 steps including several molds to create. Another was an “Elsie” the cow creamer that was designed for the 1939 New York World’s Fair. It with several other pieces were on display for members to view. Another proud piece as described by Grindley was a figurine specially designed for General Patton’s pit bull. He explained that the Sebring pottery also made “Hummels” in 1940. A proud moment in history was when the governor of 1940, John Bricker, was in town and was presented with half a dozen elephant figurines of varying size to add to his collection

Grindley and many of his relatives worked in the pottery. He has amassed quite a collection of Grindley pieces as well as his surviving relatives. Dery Zeppernick, the museum curator, jokingly said that is why they don’t have very many pieces in their displays.

He explained and described the different markings, stamps and labels that a Grindley pottery piece may carry. Color and type of piece can be an indication if it is a Grindley piece. Jaws dropped when a member said she had just sold her Indians Chief Wahoo bank (it’s really a razor blade keeper) for a sizable amount of money.

Grindley calls Zanesville his home but considers Sebring with great fondness. He returns several times a year to look for elusive pieces for his collection and to donate Sebring related items to the society. For now, he is leaving some of his collection on loan and on display at the society’s museum housed in the Stand Theatre.
