What's Happening @ (and Around) Trail

Foodies of the Year 2017
EVENT

Trail Appliances was thrilled to be the host sponsor for the second annual Western Living Foodies of the Year Awards Ceremony on June 22nd. This exciting event celebrated some of the best in the West—renowned chefs, sommeliers, producers, designers, owners, butchers, bartenders and vintners—who have had a major impact on cuisine and overall culinary experience in Western Canada.

This food-forward event was held at Trail Appliances in Richmond, hosting almost 200 attendees—some visiting from the Okanagan, Alberta and Saskatchewan. Event sponsors lit up the showroom with fun and inspiring displays—Kitchen Craft Cabinetry kept everyone guessing with an interactive game, Caesarstone wowed the room with their new line of marble countertops, Blomberg decorated the stage with beautiful stainless steel ranges and Smeg added flare to the room with their colourful countertop appliances.

David Robertson, Executive Chef and Owner of The Dirty Apron Cooking School & Delicatessen, and his amazing team passed around Braised Beef Short Rib Sliders, Black Olive and Butter crusted Arctic Char, Lobster & Mascarpone Grilled Cheese sandwiches and other delicious canapes. These were washed down with a variety of blends from Culmina Family Estate Winery, the most popular being their 2014 Dilemma—a beautifully oaked Chardonnay from a single vineyard on the Golden Mile Bench. Vancouver’s very own Central City Brewers + Distillers were also on-site, serving up a couple of ice-cold award-winning brews—their Red Racer IPA and German-style Pilsner.

The Western Living event was led by the charming Thor Diakow from Breakfast Television Vancouver, Julia Dilworth—Western Living’s Food Editor—and Anicka Quin, Western Living’s Editorial Director; the three announced and awarded the winners on stage in our Richmond showroom.

Open House with Global News and The Dirty Apron
MEDIA

Kaitlyn Herbst from Global News Morning Weekend, Chef David Robertson from The Dirty Apron and Drew Farrell from Trail Appliances Langley came together in the Live Test Kitchen at Trail Appliances Richmond showroom for a fun and informative Open House Segment featuring steam cooking.

Not only did they bring fast facts and health-inspiring tips to Global’s viewers, but also a number of laughs along the way. If only we had made a blooper reel…

Click here to watch Chef David Robertson create a simple and healthy West Coast meal— Thai steamed salmon, herb roasted potatoes and multi-coloured baby carrots. This locally-inspired dish was created using the Steam Bake feature in the Convection Single Wall Oven from the Samsung Built-In collection, prepared in our very own Live Kitchen at Trail Appliances Richmond Showroom.

It was a pleasure having Kaitlyn, David and Drew come in and explore our live appliances while sharing fascinating cooking facts during the June 10th Open House steam oven segment.

Stay tuned for the next Global Open House Segment at Trail Appliances!
