With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, many hotels and restaurants around the area are offering romantic dining packages with hotel accommodations to keep that sparkle in your relationship. For those couples that prefer staying at home, why not surprise your loved one with an innovative kitchen appliance that will surely delight them for years!
To better appreciate the kitchen gift options, check out the Viking Range’s cozy showroom in Westgate Commercial Center in Alabang. The ultra functional showroom displays its chic and excellent top of the line kitchen appliances for Filipino homes. The working kitchen has been a stage where the country’s top chefs executed wonderful cooking presentations. The brand highlights its prized 7 Series Gas Range, induction cooktop, island hood, ovens in varying sizes, wine chillers, food warmers, to the biggest all freezer all refrigerator in the market today.
Viking Range was founded in the U.S. and has been part of American homes since 1987. By 2013, the brand was acquired by The Middleby Corporation, a global leader in the commercial foodservice equipment industry. Middleby Worldwide Philippines, Inc., the local arm of The Middleby Corporation, is the official distributor of Viking Range in the Philippines. This synergy not only allowed Viking Range to introduce cutting edge and award winning kitchen appliances to the market, but also expanded its global reach with Middleby’s established international presence. The strategy is to innovative cooking features and technology from Middleby’s leading kitchen brands into the Viking Range residential line. The results are high performance and beautifully designed home kitchens that allow anyone to cook like a pro! The utmost style and standard is worth the investment since it becomes heirloom pieces that can be passed on to the next generation. All appliances are built for everyday use from families cooking dishes daily for all to share, to the trusted equipment of cooks who enjoy entertaining and preparing gastronomic concoctions.
Last week, Viking Range hosted a lunch to celebrate its continuing partnership with the Red Charity Gala. For three consecutive years, the kitchen appliance brand has given significant auction items in support of the gala’s fundraising activities. The annual charity event showcases Filipino ingenuity through artistic executions. It has been raising funds for the Philippine National Red Cross and Assumption High School Batch 1981 Foundation for ten years. With a retail value of more than two hundred thousand pesos, the Viking Range 30” Rangetop was auctioned off at the last Red Charity Gala.
Together with me as Red Charity Gala’s chairperson, and Tedrick Yau, Viking Range’s PR, the lunch was held at the Viking Range Showroom in Westgate Commercial Center, Alabang. Chef JP Anglo prepared a locally inspired menu dominated by the rich bounty of the sea. Adding to the meat selection was the delectable Roasted Chicken in Batwan Curry. Lastly, the dessert stayed truly Pinoy with the Turon dipped in Chocnut Syrup.
