LOUISVILLE, KY -- September 10, 2021 -- Monogram -- the luxury appliance brand synonymous with impeccable craftsmanship and sophisticated design -- is partnering with Chef Marcus Samuelsson to celebrate culinary innovation at the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen, which takes place from September 10-12. Monogram is proud to be a multi-stage title sponsor of this year’s event. 

Taking place at the Grand Tasting Pavilion, Monogram’s interactive experience will feature an art installation made from wine corks.

During his on-stage presentation, “Make A Statement With Globally Inspired Cuisine,” Samuelsson will showcase the luxury Minimalist and Statement Collections from the Monogram appliance lines. Following his demonstration, he will host a book signing, and Monogram will offer premium gifting experiences to guests. 

"The FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen is an event I look forward to year after year because the audience is so excited to be there, incredibly passionate about cooking, and the demos are always a good time," shared Samuelsson. “With the incredible line of Monogram appliances helping to make the magic happen on stage, I have no doubt that guests will be positively wowed.”

As one of the headlining chefs of the event, Samuelsson will take the stage with a range of Monogram’s signature products, including the Monogram 30” Smart Flush Hearth Oven 2.0, the completely redesigned and reimagined 48” Monogram Professional Range, newly launched Wine Sommelier and much more. Complementing Samuelsson’s genius, the Monogram appliances’ purposeful design and uncompromising attention to every detail will result in an unparalleled culinary experience at the festival.
