Episode 16:
Perfect Sanctuary

Print Friendly

Although many of us enjoy entertaining in our beautiful homes and kitchens with our fabulous friends and family, there are times we seek out design inspirations, wine experiences, rest and relaxation outside of our homes. Arizona has a lot to offer in wine, design and culinary extravagance. Sedona is one of Arizona’s finest places to visit with breathtaking scenery, award winning Bed and Breakfasts, magnificent wineries and extraordinary Chefs. An exploration of any destination is always good for our souls, introducing us to hidden treasures, creativity and flair. We encourage you to visit Sedona with all its charm and beauty. We promise it’s an adventure you’ll never forget!



Professionals create most the kitchens we design and cook in. Talented and knowledgeable, they bring beauty and functionality to the homes of people who trust their vision and expertise. This particular home and the homeowners who reside here are unique to our line-up. Not only was this sanctuary designed by the homeowners themselves, Janne was also the chef we brought in to cook in her own stunning kitchen on her state of the art Thermador appliances. She just happens to have a great eye for design, is the National Product Specialist for Thermador and also is an amazing Chef!

Janne and Bill’s Place


Janne and Bill have created an entertainers dream home; an open floor plan with an expansive kitchen that provides functionality and space for Janne to prepare her scrumptious menus. The kitchen was designed for personal reflection however Janne is a chef so there’s no doubt that this kitchen cooks as good as it looks!

Although Janne is the National Product Specialist for BSH, she has been a fan of Thermador appliances years before becoming their educator. In fact, Thermador has been a staple in her family since the 1950’s. It was such a joy sharing design ideas and delicious easy recipes. The cool info and tips like how you can place a porcelain plate on the Residential Cooktop, how the steam flows out and not up when you open the steam/convection oven door which reduces the risk of damaging your cabinetry and that if you keep your mixing bowl and whisk in the fridge to keep cold helps make your fresh whipped cream come out perfect every time was equally as entertaining as watching Janne prepare an entire menu.

Food and Wine


Janne’s husband Bill chose his favorite wines and gave us a little insight as to why he would choose them for each of the dishes. Although Bill is not a Sommelier, he certainly has an educated palate and we were excited by his passion for food and wine. Together this couple was a perfect example of real homeowners who created their kitchen sanctuary with real innovations for the very real cooks they are. Charm, sophistication, perfectly selected appliances, an excellent full course meal and lovely wines shared with two very special people…it doesn’t get any better than this!
