It’s a strange phenomenon but I always find that I crave cold treats the most, not when it’s sweltering hot outside, but when it’s frigid cold. That may be an individual quirk, but perhaps there are others who feel the same. On that note, today is a day of history and cold treats as it is National Peach Melba Day.
The Peach Melba is a simple dessert created by legendary French chef, Auguste Escoffier for another legendary figure, Australian opera singer Nellie Melba. Escoffier was world renowned for his traditional French cuisines at luxury hotels, and after Melba sent him extremely sought-after tickets to one of her performances, he created a dessert in her honor.
Extremely simply and decadent, Escoffier’s recipe has been modified many times, but the true recipe controls the delicate balance of sweet elements.
Happy National Peach Melba Day – enjoy!

Keep checking in for more deals and discounts on luxury appliances as the year goes on.
The new year has arrived and with 2017 comes new aspirations and hope for a brighter tomorrow, fulfilled sense of selves, and most importantly, finally devoting yourself fully to creating the kitchen of your dreams.
How you choose to design your kitchen comes from many different influences, based on your tastes, your needs, memories, and of course, the latest trends. We’ve researched everything from color to technology to bring you the kitchen design trends of 2017.
As the hearth of the home, we put a lot of effort into creating a warm and beautiful atmosphere for our kitchens. Sometimes, it may prove to be too difficult to sacrifice cabinet space for a sizable range, while other times it simply may be overkill if you’re searching for a beautiful but simple design.
A creative solution to this is to consider installing a cooktop or rangetop, which are renowned for their perfect visual craftsmanship, and powerful cooking abilities.
Notice Anything Different? The Changes in the Viking VDOF Double Oven Are More Than Just Steel-deep.
Most likely, every oven you’ve ever seen—until the past couple years—has had a horizontal bar at the top, which you pull down to open the door. This 30-inch Viking oven features a striking difference to most standard ovens: French doors.
The French door oven is one of the latest major innovations in the cooking appliance world. While it does include an obvious impact on the appearance of the appliance, the innovation is not just for looks.
The U.S.A. is still a young nation compared to the rest of the world, and because of that, there is still a child-like wonder when it comes to developing new and game-changing technology. There are no limits to the imagination or determination to pursue progress, and time and time again, American brands prove that they can withstand the storm and produce exactly what customers want, and then some.
In similar fashion, American-brand ranges were truly a favorite of home chefs this year, and superior power and cutting-edge innovation established four American-brand ranges as some of Elite Appliance’s Best of 2016 top appliances.
It keeps food cold, right?
Sure, but keeping the food cold is ultimately about preserving it, locking in freshness so we can pour a cup of milk for our kids every morning of the week; so we can eat a piece of crisp, tasty fruit a week after we purchased it at the store.
Temperature, of course, plays a key role in food preservation, but there’s more to it than that. Luckily, Viking has thought through the science of food preservation from every angle and addressed each component of freshness, making the 48-inch Viking side by side refrigerator, VCSB5483, an impressive piece of scientific engineering.
When it comes to European ranges, there’s no doubting the certain je ne sais quoi that drives dexterous chefs to their porcelainized burners and gleaming frames. Here at Elite Appliance, we have the extreme pleasure of carrying several regal and mighty European ranges to deliver you the exact power and precision you need.
However, in the grand scheme of finding the top performers of 2016, there are certain models that stood out above the rest this year.
Making a kitchen appliance purchase is a big commitment. People generally keep their major appliances for about 10 years, so when you purchase a cooking range, you’re likely looking at a decade-long commitment. It’s an important relationship, as you’ll encounter and interact with your range on a daily basis.
As such, you must choose carefully, considering whether the range addresses your cooking needs, whether it is comfortable to use, and whether it fits your design preferences.
