DCS by Fisher & Paykel Teams with Mordechai

Huntington Beach, CA – DCS by Fisher & Paykel has announced a collaboration with Karen Mordechai, creator of the popular Sunday Suppers events and classes and noted food photographer and food stylist.

Sunday Suppers is a unique class and cooking experience held in Mordechai’s loft in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, NY that brings together food, friends and strangers from all walks of life ranging from artists to noted bloggers and foodie enthusiasts. Cooking classes taught by local chefs are followed by a communal-table setting and dinner, evoking an intimate family meal. Mordechai captures the entire event in photos, which she posts on her popular blog (http://sunday-suppers.com), along with the recipes for those at home to explore in their own kitchens.

Now, thanks to the partnership with DCS by Fisher & Paykel, Mordechai and her group of top chefs and students can create their Sunday Suppers’ culinary masterpieces with the appliance manufacturer’s top professional cooking equipment.

“I think Sunday Suppers represents something that is pretty phenomenal and not seen often enough - which is this invitation to celebrate food and all things culinary, sometimes with people you know and sometimes with complete strangers,” said Gina Marie Lathrum, product manager for DCS by Fisher & Paykel. “Everything Karen does on her blog, the food she prepares and her photography is really inspired around food.

"A Sunday Suppers evening is really about inspiration," Lathrum continues. "People leave there inspired to cook and try new things they never would have experienced before. Add in the fact that Karen’s kitchen is equipped by DCS and Fisher & Paykel products fits well with Fisher & Paykel’s healthy living and DCS’ commercial culinary themes.  It’s a great opportunity for the New York and East Coast folks, who attend Sunday Suppers, to see the appliances up close and personal.”

DCS by Fisher & Paykel and Fisher & Paykel outfitted Mordechai’s kitchen with a DCS 48” gas range with 6 burners and a grill, a DCS convection microwave, a DCS 52” Island Vent hood and Chimney Kit for the hood, a DCS double DishDrawer dishwasher, a Fisher & Paykel 17.5 cu. ft. bottom mount refrigerator, and a DCS microware trim kit and a griddle plate for the range.

"The Fisher & Paykel partnership makes sense for us," said Mordechai. "We have an incredible group of professional chefs who come to our events and teach at our studio. The DCS by Fisher & Paykel and Fisher & Paykel brands offer our students the opportunity to cook with the most efficient and high performance equipment at their disposal.”

“In planning the Sunday Suppers kitchen, my goal was to create an open and aesthetically inviting space for large groups to engage in communal cooking,” Mordechai added. “The well designed appliances of the DCS by Fisher & Paykel and Fisher & Paykel brands are a perfect fit for my kitchen and my audience."

Other noteworthy highlights of the partnership include a Web site and social media collaboration, a number of Sunday Suppers’ recipes being made available on the DCS by Fisher & Paykel Web site for its fans, and cooking demonstrations and events.
