Sur La Table and KitchenAid go way back. Since Sur La Table’s debut in 1972, KitchenAid products have been among the most popular and most innovative that the retailer has carried. With such a longstanding friendship, it’s no surprise that the two have teamed up again this year to present a fun look at fall and holiday offerings from both companies—just for the International Food Bloggers Conference.
Both Sur La Table and KitchenAid are so excited to help bloggers from near and far create buzz and build excitement by integrating innovative techniques into their cooking with the help of cutting-edge products. At this already-filled event prior to the conference’s start, bloggers will get to hear from key leaders from both companies as they provide overviews of the season to come.
Attendees will also watch a demo by Sur La Table’s Culinary Program Director using the new KitchenAid Spiralizer Attachment, sample some of Sur La Table’s pumpkin spice and holiday treats collections and learn about KitchenAid’s Precision Press Coffee Maker, an innovative new way to brew coffee.
The KitchenAid Spiralizer Attachment has been ultra popular with home cooks from the minute it was available. With a few quick clicks, this handy attachment lets you turn any KitchenAid Stand Mixer into a powerful spiralizer, peeler, corer and slicer. It’s hands-down the easiest way to get into one of the hottest trends in cooking.
The new KitchenAid Precision Press Coffee Maker improves upon the simplicity of the French press brew process through sleek functional design and convenient technology. The Precision Press has an integrated scale and timer that make it simple to measure brew time and the precise ratio of coffee to water, all within the carafe. It’s an enhanced French press that gives home baristas precise control over every part of the brewing process.
Sur La Table’s new collection of pumpkin spice baking mixes has been flying off the shelves. Created exclusively for them by the team at Baked NYC, these mixes are a no-fuss way to whip up incredible Americana-style treats. You can peek behind the scenes of the collection here.
And this is only a taste of what’s to come from these companies now through the holidays. They’re excited to share it all with fellow foodies!
