Hang tight through the length of this post because at the very end is a recipe from Thermador’s very own, Chef Brad, for the most delicious pancake syrup I have ever tried.
What do you get when you combine 20 bloggers with a passion for food, one incredible company who is known for their quality and innovative products for culinary enthusiasts and a gorgeous location in Scottsdale, AZ?
You get the Thermador’s “Now You’re (Steam) Cooking” Blogger Adventure! I was honored to be one of 20 bloggers invited by Thermador to their event to unveil the new Thermador Steam and Convection Oven.

The Thermador Steam and Convection Oven is one impressive appliance. With three different modes (Steam, Convection, and Combination Steam/Convection), Thermador’s newest innovation is going to change the way culinary enthusiasts use their own personal kitchens. Imagine having perfectly fresh steamed vegetables with just the touch of a button or baking an amazing French Loaf without having to do the whole water bottle spritzer trick. Do you want your food to have the same fresh taste and texture without the microwave sogginess? The Thermador Steam and Convection oven does the trick! You can get complete details on the Thermador Steam and Convection oven plus learn more about Thermador’s entire line of cooking appliances by going to the Thermador Website. After spending a few days with the folks at Thermador, who are about as passionate and genuine as they come, you can bet that if I were doing a kitchen remodel or upgrading my appliances, I would definitely go with the Thermador brand!
When you get this many food bloggers together and you are wined and dined for 3 incredible days, you also start to notice how slightly fanatic we all are about food photography! Everywhere you turned cameras were clicking. Our cameras definitely got a workout as we all went into full food paparazzi mode.

I had a wonderful few days and appreciate the folks at Thermador for including me in this event. The Hyatt Scottsdale was such a welcome retreat, Maestros Restaurant had the best filet I have ever eaten, 5th and Wine restaurant was such a fun atmosphere with delicious food and I seriously came home 5 pounds heavier thanks to the Chefs at Thermador and their fabulous food!
Speaking of fab food, here is the Buttermilk Syrup recipe from Chef Brad I promised you. Once you try this syrup, you won’t want to try anything else on your pancakes, french toast or waffles. It melts in your mouth the second it hits your tongue and tastes so buttery rich and delicious. It does make a huge batch, but you can save what you don’t eat up in the refrigerator and you will discover it has an even richer flavor after you heat it up the next time.
Buttermilk Syrup for Pancakes, French Toast or Waffles (from Thermador’s Chef Brad)
1 1/2 cups butter (3 sticks)
1 1/2 cups buttermilk (I used buttermilk substitute – 1 Tbs of Lemon Juice for each 1 cup of milk)
3 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 teaspoons baking soda
In a large pan (make sure it is large, this syrup will grow when you add the vanilla and soda), place the butter, buttermilk, and sugar. Bring to a boil stirring. remove from heat and whisk in vanilla and soda. it will foam. Now it is ready to serve. Yum Yum.
Disclaimer: Thermador was generous enough to pay my travel, room / board, meal expenses for my time in Scottsdale, AZ however the opinions expressed in this post about their products are my own.
Loooooved those pancakes:) Great photos from the trip! I had a blast hanging out with you! We need more trips like that:)
I enjoyed reading all about the oven–so many possibilities! And thanks for sharing the buttermilk syrup recipe. I’m going to try it on baked French toast later this week.
That syrup is sitting in my fridge right now, calling my name. I had to stop my 2yo from drinking it like a shot out of the dipping cup we poured it into for him. What a treat! 🙂
Amy from She Wears Many Hats says
That syrup looks dangerous! And the oven sounds like it’d make things a lot easier – and healthier in the kitchen.
I don’t think this recipe will wait until the weekend to be made- Yum!! It was a blessing to meet you finally here in AZ, and I hope it wasn’t our last 😉
Simone (junglefrog) says
Those are some seriously goodlooking pancakes! Sounds like a fun event to be with and great shots too!
Oh, that syrup looks amazing. Why is it to easy to make? That means I could make it at any time haha.
Jessica @ How Sweet says
That syrup sounds incredible. I have never had such a thing! It looks delicious.
This sounds like one awesome event! Some of my favorite food bloggers all in one place!
I’ve been craving a convection oven…maybe once I get my own apartment. If ever that day comes.
But in the meantime, I CAN make this fantastic syrup. I sense breakfast-for-dinner coming on…
Lana @ Never Enough Thyme says
Oh, my. That syrup looks seriously delicious! I have to try this right away.
Sounds like you all had a great time at this event. How nice of Thermidor to do this!
Wow, sounds like an incredible time!
The syrup looks so decadent! I may even try it over ice cream for dessert!
Such a great re-cap of your travels to AZ. I want one of those Thermador ovens now!! Such a great review, you won me over. And that pancake syrup….wow! xo
What a grand opportunity! That syrup looks amazing! Glad you had a safe and great trip.
Melissa of Lovely Android says
I just died looking at the photos of that syrup. It looks so delicious! I will be making it the next time I make some waffles. Thanks for the recipe!
Cookin' Canuck says
It sounds as though all of you had an amazing time and learned about some pretty amazing products. This syrup is so unusual and, judging by all the comments I saw on Twitter, well worth trying.
Sandy Smith says
The syrup looks terrific! I’m so glad that you included the substitution note too.
I like the idea of having a combi oven ~ looks like it would be loads of fun to play around with!
Well, I will give this a try for certain. I grew up on pure maple syrup though, if I end up liking this better you can bet the whole world will know about it! 😉
YUM! YUM! Yum for my tummy! Can’t wait to try this on my daughters when they are home! Now I’m on the search for a Pancake recipe to go with it! Thanks so much for sharing!:)
Will definitely be trying that syrup – yum!
And I’m so glad thermador included you too – what a great getaway. And so well deserved. Fun, fun!
Debbi Does Dinner Healthy says
Sounds incredibly fun! Love the pictures you have!
The pancake syrup is diet syrup, right??? 🙂 3 sticks of butter, Holy Butter Balls! I’ll bet it’s positively delightful with a homemade waffle!! Thanks for sharing!

I wonder if this would be a good sauce on bread pudding?
The Duo Dishes says
It sounded like all of you guys had a blast on the trip. AZ can be gorgeous at this time of the year, and hopefully it’s not too hot! This syrup recipe is primo! Who would even think of this but a genius?
Mardi @eatlivetravelwrite says
I was following along your tweets during that event and was green with envy!!! What a fabulous opportunity!!!!
Sounds like a super blogger info event! (kind of fun to put faces on blog authors as well!)
I am loving the buttermilk syrup! I don’t know how my kids will react to anything not maple, but I’m sure going to give this a try!
the urban baker says
i saw this on your other site. this looks so good. i am going to whip some of this up!!!!
Ooh, that syrup sounds divine! Sounds like a fun trip, too!
Tickled Red says
That oven is sooooo wonderful! I would never leave my kitchen 🙂
Now for that syrup…just the name made this southern girl grin and brought on a case of the Bububub’s. OMW!
sarah (Catch A Cub In Its Den) says
perfect timing… finally bought a waffle iron last weekend. looks like i’ll be having waffles two weekends in a row since i have to try this syrup recipe!
jane (this week for dinner) says

Loving all the blogger photos! you take great pictures girl! 🙂
that syrup looks heavenly!!
I don’t know what looks better: the pancakes or that OVEN!!! So fun!
The Teacher Cooks says
The syrup sounds amazing. I want one of those new ovens!
This stuff is delicious! I’ve been glazing challah French toast with it and I will never go back to plain old table syrup again!
Kathy - Panini Happy says
Just wanted to tell you I make this syrup every time we have friends over for pancakes (which is often, including today). Everyone is always amazed at how awesome it is!
Thank you, thank you, thank you. This syrup is heavenly. We used it with lemon poppy seed pancakes. I don’t think I’ll ever buy syrup again.
Just one question – how long can I keep this in the fridge?
How long will the sauce be good for? Week, a couple days?
