And, not only is it a recipe she will walk you through with tons of insider information, she will even provide a timeline to make the process easier. She calls this recipe “Bread Creation” because she has learned so much in the process that she wants to share.

Haefele Design, Inc. (Featured Installation: Bel Air, CA)

Haefele Design knows how to translate the needs and desires of their clients into their projects, which won them much praise from the NKBA and a first place 2019 Outdoor Kitchen award. When a sophisticated, forward thinking bachelor wants to entertain, he does so in an aesthetic that exemplifies his lifestyle. Haefele Design graduated from the “man- cave” and opted for a sleek, contemporary outdoor kitchen with a custom black finished Rockwell by Caliber barbecue as a focal point and a custom square black handle to match. The lid even included a custom gloss black porcelain coating.

This outdoor room is complete with two refrigerators, ice maker and a dishwasher. Cabinetry construction is unique, incorporating the use of unconventional high gloss solid acrylic doors, solid plastic carcass boxes and special non-rusting hardware. This kitchen is completely indestructible to weather and rough use.

The most unique and challenging feature was engineering the fully integrated handles in conjunction with the different hidden appliances. The side of the cabinetry run with the refrigerators required vertical hidden handles, whereas the opposite side has one horizontal handle at the top of ADA height appliances. Two different types of outdoor outlets were powder coated to match, allowing up to twenty USB cords to charge at a time.

The sink is black stone to match the black granite waterfall countertop, topped off with a black MGS telescoping faucet. At night, lights glow in the knee space as well as washing the textured, grey backdrop of a wall. For the full photos from this installation visit Haefele Design’s website here.

Chef Adrian Giese (Featured Installation: Los Angeles, CA)

As the executive chef of Mastro’s Restaurant in Los Angeles, Adrian strives to make his guests happy with the food he creates. His love for food started at a young age by tasting food from all over the world. As soon as he could see over the stove, he started experimenting in the kitchen. Professionally, he has honed his culinary career by working with many great chefs at Stokes Adobe of Monterey, Roy’s Hawaiian Fusion, Monterey Plaza Hotel, and Peppoli of Pebble Beach. As executive chef of Mastro’s Restaurant, his love for making people happy with food has never changed.

With over fifteen years of professional experience in the kitchen, Adrian wanted to bring a top-of-the-line range into his home, and so he sought out Caliber. He loved the level of customization he was able to get from Caliber Appliances. He not only chose stainless steel grates and a custom matte black finish but also copper trim, knob and handle finishes to match his copper pots and cabinetry hardware. He additionally worked with our friends at Vent-A-Hood to pair his hood to the range. Now, with both exceptional style and performance thanks to his Caliber Indoor Pro Range, he never stops cooking while at home. Adrian shared his first of what we hope to be many more recipes cooked up on the Caliber Indoor Range. Click here for the Mediterranean braised lamb shank recipe.

Pictured above is Adrian’s 36″ Caliber Indoor Professional Range with six burners (RG36-N) with upgrades of: Stainless Steel grates (SSG) & custom RAL #9005 semi-gloss jet black color with polished copper door trim, knobs, bezels, handle and end caps.
