The Oxo housewares business of Helen Of Troy has launched of “Oxo Chefs in Residence,” a collaborative series with three chefs and creators to help inspire and advance home cooking.
For the inaugural year of its Chef in Residence program, Oxo has partnered with chef personalities Eden Grinshpan, Rick Martinez, and Kwame Onwuachi. Exclusive videos, recipes, content and shoppable chef pages on Oxo.com will launch in September and continue through the holiday season and beyond.
The Oxo chefs will offer exclusive culinary tips and techniques as they share how they use Oxo tools to create recipes.
“Chefs have been a large source of inspiration, information and product feedback throughout Oxo’s history, motivating us to consistently create better tools and gadgets that live up to the performance and durability demands of professional chefs and home cooks alike,” said Larry Witt, president of Helen Of Troy Housewares. “Our Chefs in Residence program will serve as a platform for rising culinary stars to share their globally inspired cooking styles, passion for food, and in-depth cooking knowledge and experiences with the broader Oxo community.”
