Thermador, part of BSH Home Appliances Corporation, will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the industry's first built-in wall oven by hosting a recipe contest and sweepstakes.
"Thermador has a history of firsts that have shaped the luxury kitchen and made it an American Icon brand," said Franz J. Bosshard, president and CEO. "Our invention of the built-in oven transformed the American kitchen, and to this day, we have continued to create numerous advancements to our top-rated wall ovens, including a breakthrough control system and the only 30-in triple configuration series on the market today. In commemorating our past, present and future, we celebrate our consumers and their love of cooking by giving them an opportunity to share their talents with others."
The contest, which begins April 1, 2005 and ends July 15, 2005, will be held throughout the U.S. to represent 50 years, 50 states, and 50 recipes. Contestants from all over the U.S. are invited to submit an original oven recipe, which represents the tastes and culture of their state. All recipes will be judged, based on taste and regional distinction, by chef Bradley Ogden, winner of the James Beard Foundation 2004 “Best New Restaurant” award for his self-named restaurant at Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas, NV, U.S.
Only one recipe from each state will win, and contest winners will have their recipes published in Thermador’s Taste of America Oven Recipe Cookbook, which will be released in January 2006. All contestants will be automatically entered in the "50 Years of the Built-In Oven Sweepstakes" for the chance to win a 50th Anniversary Ford Thunderbird.
As part of its anniversary celebration, Thermador will also produce a special limited edition wall oven model with a unique mirrored exterior.
