Why did 10 star chefs come together on one evening in May to devise delectable culinary creations for 400 guests? The occasion for this illustrious gathering was the opening of the new CoolGiants Showrooms near Munich, a Living Kitchen that boasts the latest high-end appliances – from ovens, steam cookers, refrigerators, dishwashers and more – ready to use. Star chef Stefan Marquard conjured up salmon in butter asparagus on the Wolf induction and steam cookers and Ludwig Maurer served US beef flank and roast beef from the charbroiler.

Among the latest offerings were also the eye-catching Copacabana, a colourful Falcon special edition that was specifically created for the World Cup, and the PRO 48 COOL AS ICE by Christian Awe for Sub-Zero, a colourful fridge freezer and a unique piece among the largest fridge freezers in the world, owing to its status as special limited edition of 10 individual pieces of art.
