Chef Amanda of PIRCH San Diego takes the Caliber Range for a Test Drive

Chef Amanda Palomino is a seasoned chef. She joined PIRCH San Diego in their test kitchen over a year ago, and prior to that she battled it out in two seasons on Hell’s Kitchen with Chef Ramsay. Caliber was excited to have Amanda take the Caliber Indoor Pro Range on a test drive in anticipation of PIRCH adding this to their showroom. Chef Amanda seared salmon on the rangetop and also cooked it in the range at 425°F in the convection oven, and raved about the even heat of Caliber. She also baked two trays of chocolate chip cookies at the same time and couldn’t believe the evenness of the baking in the gas range, and said it’s better than the electric ovens she’s baked in that boast being the best.

Amanda also tested the quick boil of the 23,000 BTU burners and the 500°F simmer down capabilities and was very impressed. She additionally made a stir fry, and found no hot spots across the griddle. Chef Amanda is excited to have Caliber’s indoor range join their showroom floor at PIRCH.

Special thanks to Scott and Iliana from Season 1 Episode 12 of HGTV‘s Hidden Potential with designer, Jasmine Roth, for opening up their home as Chef Amanda’s test kitchen.

Chef Chris of Luxury Reps and Chef Amanda of PIRCH (San Diego, CA) made an amazing dish of grilled pork belly, polenta and shrimp while entertaining with new homeowners from a Ranch Santa Fe neighborhood. This was a great way to meet new neighbors while also getting ideas on what to include in their outdoor landscaping.

PIRCH (San Diego, CA)

The Social Grill socialized this past week at a PIRCH event in San Diego, California. PIRCH (San Diego, CA) is a Caliber featured dealer this month for the unique culinary events they host to promote Caliber products.

PIRCH invited six couples who recently bought a new home in this Rancho Santa Fe neighborhood (through Butler Gore Realty Group) to experience Caliber as a possibility for their landscaping while also meeting their new neighbors.

The owner of the Local Brew Pub Mason (Mason Ale Works) was pairing up drinks and Chef Chris of Caliber had the group cooking kabobs of shrimp and beef, while socializing with each other over the Rockwell by Caliber Social Grill. 

Chef Amanda of PIRCH smoked a lovely pulled pork on the Caliber Pro Kamado Grill with slaw and Mexican corn. It was a wonderful evening.
