On one side of the island the chef can be grilling up lunch for his guests that are confortably seated on the other side of the bar in these handmade, swing-away stools. Also, not only is the lid of the grill low so guests can see over it, but it also retracts completely below the grill to allow guests to grill food from their side of the table.
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. Currently serving as the 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 sought out Caliber. He also loved the level of customization he was able to get from Caliber Appliances. He not only chose stainless grates, 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. With now both exceptional style and performance of 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.
Mingle Home Design and Showroom, located in the Twin Cities, is more than a Caliber dealer. They are a single-source home design and cabinetry showroom for homeowners, builders and design industry professionals, and they are our featured installation this month for designing this east coast style outdoor oasis. Their design features Neolith countertop and backsplash and NatureKast outdoor cabinetry around the 42″ Caliber Crossflame Pro Grill. The gorgeous custom Vent-a-Hood is also a highlight of the design. It is the perfect gathering space for the empty-nesters who love to entertain while taking in the outstanding views of Lake Minnetonka. It is off of the main level of an East Coast Shingle Style home and photographed by Scott Amundson Photography. For more information on Mingle, click here.
Caliber’s featured installation this month is from Laurie Haefele of Haefele Design, Inc. and Ocean Point Development, who included Caliber in some unique outdoor designs for her clients in Malibu, California as our featured installation this month. Laurie has a client who lives directly on the beach. She asked Caliber to not only customize the stainless steel to an even higher grade to outlast the weathering on the beach, but also to create a custom grill top cover to transform the grill into a dual-purpose buffet area. The Rockwell by Caliber Social Grill has a disappearing lid, which makes it an unique and versatile grill, and Caliber is always up for a design challenge to make your culinary jewel exactly what you want. This created a beautiful area for grilling overlooking the ocean.
By special request, this 42″ Rockwell by Caliber Social Grill was made of 316 stainless steel, and with the custom cover open you can see the original grilling lid when down and up for actual cooking. When done cooking, the clients wanted the space above to be used to serve their guests the food they just prepared.
On another balcony of this same home in Malibu, Haefele Design opted for a more traditional grilling environment with another Caliber grill.
Designer Bruce Colucci of Le Gourmet Kitchen in Orange, California wanted to present his clients with a special option for the range in a classy kitchen remodel in Newport Beach. The clients wanted their range to stand out, and Caliber’s customizable options and amazing engineering for the gas range made this a no-brainer choice. The hood was even designed by Le Gourmet Kitchen to complement the range’s features and is a focal point in this beautiful kitchen. Bruce is looking forward to highlighting the Caliber Indoor Professional Range as a focal point within one of his upcoming designs.
The inspiration for this Chic Kitchen Update by Di Biase Filkoff Architects was a modern farmhouse aesthetic. The clients wanted a glamorous country kitchen with brass touches, but a masculine feel. The goal was to design a kitchen with a hint of the traditional accented with contemporary touches, and to visually expand the space without moving any of the existing walls. The owners loved the contrasts – between the traditional & industrial, masculine & glamorous, dark cabinets & light brass accents. The masculine custom-designed Caliber Indoor Pro Range contrasts with the glamorous brass inlay of the island counter top. Caliber enjoyed customizing our culinary equipment to truly accent and help tie together the space in this installation.
Albano Appliance in Pound Ridge, New York was also the Caliber featured dealer to provide the Caliber range for this project.
Caliber was thrilled to be part of Scott and Iliana’s renovation project with HGTV designer Jasmine Roth. The Huntington Beach locals were having trouble entertaining in their house’s cramped quarters and limited seating areas. Jasmine designed a house with a functional floor plan that also stands out on the block with their new state-of-the-art culinary range.
