Poggenpohl recently joined in the celebration of the 35th anniversary re-opening of the De Gustibus Cooking School by Miele in Macy’s Herald Square. The colorful #DG35 Media Event hosted over 220 guests including various media outlets, celebrity chefs, friends, clients and partners of the cooking school.

Chef/Co-Owner Gabe Thompson of Epicurean Events provided delicious signature hors d’oeuvres along with perfectly paired wines courtesy of Banfi Wines. The #DG35 event continued through the night with music and dancing before ending with a delightful dessert selection; assorted cookies provided by Milk Bar NYC and a superb lemon olive oil cake courtesy of Chef Thiago Silva of the EMM Group.

The four-tiered cake was creatively decorated and modeled to look exactly like the Poggenpohl cabinetry featured in the demonstration kitchen at De Gustibus cooking School. And it did look absolutely authentic.

Among the most distinguished guests were Celebrity Chef Marc Murphy of The Food Network series Chopped, two-time Chopped winner James Briscione and Michelin starred Chef Markus Glocker of Batard Other event sponsors included Voss Water who provided a “wall of water” for the event, Solex fine foods and Robinson’s Prime Reserve. Urbani Truffles along with Illy Coffee and L ‘Occitane contributed to the gift bags.

Poggenpohl provided De Gustibus with a contemporary kitchen design for the cooking school’s grand re-opening in December. The fully transformed classroom and operational kitchen mixes a professional work environment with an intimate atmosphere. Poggenpohl’s cabinetry and shelving offer warmth and a cotemporary style while providing innovative ways to maximize space.
