1888PressRelease - Region's newest demonstration kitchen with broadcasting capabilities offers unique space for cooking professionals to star in their own cooking shows, food & wine experiences and televised events.
Seattle-Bellevue-Everett, WA - Founder and owner Lisa Caruccio invites you to the ribbon cutting ceremony and grand opening celebration for Caruccio’s, a new culinary event center with a demonstration kitchen and filming capabilities on Mercer Island, Sept. 14 from 4 to 8 p.m.
Caruccio’s is poised to be the region’s go-to place for wine and film events, televised cooking classes, live food blogging, food photography, product launches and private events.
Inspired by a love for food, wine, film and hospitality from around the world, this event space sets the stage for hosting international and local chefs, winemakers, home cooks and instructors. Located on Mercer Island, Caruccio’s is the longtime dream of owner Lisa Caruccio. With a passion for international cuisine and beautifully made food, her mission is to bring people together through culinary events.
Lisa dreamed of having a place with a beautiful kitchen where people could gather for team-oriented cooking classes, pop-up ventures or specialty-catered events. For an even more immersive experience, she hopes to host chefs for culinary showcases and hold film and food nights.
“We have so much talent here. I’ve met wonderful cooks, specializing in different cuisines from around the world. I would love to celebrate the culinary arts in this community by showcasing all these amazing people,” said Lisa, “My hope is to elevate the culinary arts by hosting events at Caruccio’s dedicated to sharing beautiful food, so I can bring hospitality and artistic cuisine together. Through every shared experience, I want to offer the same warmth, love, and care to my community that has been so graciously extended to me along the way.”
The centerpiece of the two-level, 1800-square foot event center is the grand demonstration kitchen featuring a 21-foot long curved countertop with twelve burners and huge overhead screens allowing attendees to view all the action. Street-facing windows provide a warm ambiance for the main level, with seating for up to 40 diners (or standing room for 80 guests). Overlooking the main level is a 440-square foot mezzanine furnished with a large round table and a fireplace intended for more intimate gatherings and business meetings.
Food professionals, bloggers, and film producers will enjoy using this kitchen to showcase new products or dishes, test recipes, or film a televised cooking class or event. Large film walls add dramatic effect for live events and a wall-mounted flat screen is available for broadcasts during guest chef appearances. It is also an ideal setting for a pop-up venture or product launch.
Grand Opening: Thursday, Sept. 14, from 4 to 8 p.m.
