Today’s luxury kitchen is a hub for entertainment, creativity and great conversation, and premium home appliance manufacturer Dacor is turning the industry on its head with its new Modernist Collection. The revolutionary suite of kitchen appliances champions the luxury kitchen as a place to entertain and connect with friends and family. To introduce affluent, modern entertainers to its product line, Dacor partnered with Pebble Beach Food & Wine, one of the world’s preeminent culinary festivals, to set the stage for great entertainment and exceptional epicurean experiences.

For Dacor’s signature event on Friday evening, “Dinnertime Meets Showtime,” model and actress Molly Sims entertained an intimate group of distinguished diners, sharing moments from her career, life as a mother and culinary travels. Using Dacor’s cooking products, “Top Chef” alum Fabio Viviani translated her stories into a mouth-watering meal memoir for guests to enjoy.

Additional celebrity chefs showcased the Dacor kitchen suites throughout the weekend through unique cooking demonstrations in the Dacor Entertainers’ Pavilion. Culinary talent included Chefs Naomi Pomeroy of Portland’s Beast, Graham Elliot (“Top Chef,” “Master Chef” and “Master Chef Junior”) of his eponymous Michelin-starred Chicago restaurant, and chef, restaurateur, author and TV personality Curtis Stone of Los Angeles restaurants Maude and Gwen.

Cooking demos highlighted Dacor’s existing Heritage Collection and the new Modernist Collection. Available in graphite and standard stainless steel, the Modernist Collection is a full suite of sophisticated luxury kitchen appliances hallmarked by an entirely new approach to how appliances fit into today’s kitchen, with exceptional performance and consumer points of delight to provide an engaging stage for the modern entertainer.

Dacor also displayed its latest column refrigeration with industry-leading performance and breathtaking design at “On the Rocks,” a unique event during Pebble Beach Food & Wine’s renowned Grand Tasting. The event was curated by mixologist Joshua Perry of Monterey’s Restaurant 1833 and featured drinks that highlighted Dacor Cocktail Ice™ produced by the dual ice-maker within the columns. Cocktail Ice™ melts slower so that guests were able to enjoy all the flavors and the experience of Joshua’s creations.

Building on more than 50 years of craftsmanship, the beautifully designed Modernist Collection represents a new generation of exceptional home appliances. The premium finish sets the stage for innovative and precise performance to delight today’s modern entertainers, style seekers and chefs alike. Created with durable yet luxurious materials and an array of thoughtfully designed consumer touchpoints—including Illumina™ Knobs, LCD control panels, SoftShut doors and hidden hinges—the Modernist Collection seeks to make every kitchen experience a memorable one.
