The International Home + Housewares Show is the world’s largest marketplace of home and housewares professionals. It provides the opportunity to preview an incredible range of consumer lifestyle and product trends that focus on all areas of the home, both inside and out. We're excited to be debuting some of our new products for 2013 at this prestigious trade show. Held in Chicago's McCormick Place, this year's Show is March 2-5. What has Shun got planned for the 2013 Show? Read on...
The new Shun Blue line will be an exciting part of this year's International Home + Housewares Show.
Shun Blue was developed in partnership with award-winning chef, Chris Cosentino. Internationally renouned for his "nose-to-tail" cooking philosophy, Chef Cosentino chose traditional Japanese blade shapes that are essential for preparing the proteins for which he is so well known, as well as a selection of all-purpose tools every kitchen needs.
As part of Show events, Chef Cosentino will be using his favorite Shun Blues during several demonstrations at the Shun booth (S4435). He'll be showing how beautifully Blue works with poultry, pork, as well as other proteins. On another day, the Chef will be using the Shun Blue Menkiri (noodle knife) to create a mouth-watering pasta dish in the main Cooking Theater.
Shun Blue knives have a carbon steel cutting core for a razor-sharp edge and quick re-sharpening. For easier care, the "blue" carbon steel core is sandwiched between two layers of mirror-polished stainless steel. The beautiful grey PakkaWood® handles are a variation on a traditional Japanese design modified to meet the chef's demands for secure and comfortable grip. The Shun Blue line makes this selection of classic Japanese culinary knives available to professionals and avid home cooks in the West.
But that's not all.
We'll also be introducing another exciting new line at the Show. We're keeping it under wraps for now, but we can tell you that it involves some pretty cool, proprietary technology that's going to make Shun quality available at an incredible price. We'll keep you up to date right here so you'll be among the first to know.
