Cooking It Up with My Sarasota Chef
Last week, Home-Tech officially opened its doors to the residents of Sarasota and Manatee Counties. We had a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and a day long Open House event. As part of our Open House celebration, we wanted to reward our outstanding Service Agreement members with something special. The something special was an intimate cooking demonstration with My Sarasota Chef, Richard Chaney.
Home-Tech wants to reward its Service Agreement customers with perks and bonuses, as these members are the backbone of our business. Not only do Service Agreement Members receive discounts on all of our appliances and air conditioning systems, they now receive private event invitations to special parties and sales events at the Ft. Myers and Lakewood Ranch showrooms.
The Cooking Demo
Chef Richard Chaney’s menu was specifically selected, in order to showcase KitchenAid’s Architect Double Oven, a dual-fan convection oven with steam-assist technology which eliminates the need for manual steps such as basting or spritzing. With steam-assist , your dishes will maintain the perfect balance of internal moisture and external crispness on their own. These recipes created by Chef Chaney are healthy and easy to prepare.
