Son of Philadelphia and world renowned Chef Marc Vetri doesn’t take food lightly; nor should he. Having been trained in Bergamo, Mr. Vetri oversees seven Delaware Valley restaurants that capture the essence of the country that taught the world to eat, Italy.
You can imagine the city’s collective excitement when news circulated that a demo kitchen within his flagship restaurant, Vetri was in the works. The concept was simple. Create an area for Mr. Vetri to experiment, a mad scientist’s lab if you will, and make it friendly and inviting. Naturally, the equipment used in the kitchen had to be of the highest standard, yet pleasing to the eye. For Philadelphia’s native son, only a BlueStar Range would do.
Made locally in Reading, BlueStar’s parent company, Prizer-Painter Stoveworks has over 100 years of experience in manufacturing cooking equipment. Since 2002, the BlueStar line has been a symbol of local craftsmanship and top-level performance. In conjunction with professional quality, BlueStar pays attention to style and offers 190 different color options and seven different texture options to create limitless possibilities with their appliances to match any kitchen design, large or small.
It’s no surprise that the centerpiece of Vetri’s demokitchen is BlueStar’s 60-inch gas range. The powerful 23,000 BTU burners are perfect for searing and are certainly worthy of Vetri’s award winning pastas. Not to be outdone are BlueStar’s ovens. Two large convection ovens are built into the 60-inch range and both accommodate commercial size baking sheets and feature an infrared broiler that rivals broilers found in the finest steak houses.
Here at Superior Woodcraft we were treated to an exclusive meal prepared on a BlueStar range by Marc Vetri himself in his newly opened demo kitchen. A very special thank you to Kieffer’s Appliances and BlueStar for arranging the evening!
