Cover The V6000 Supreme series refrigerator from V-ZUG

From family dinners to intimate tête-à-têtes at home, the V6000 Supreme series of refrigerators from V-ZUG are the ideal companions for any social occasion; plus, try a recipe that offers a healthier take on the creme brûlée 

Organising a dinner party for friends and family is often a labour of love, one that involves careful planning, a keen eye for detail and some culinary finesse. Regular hosts will want as much help as they can get, and complementing their needs is the new V6000 Supreme range of refrigeration appliances by Swiss manufacturer V-ZUG

Backed with over a hundred years of history in household appliances, the Swiss manufacturer is a reputable name that prioritises both convenience and design. The V6000 Supreme series is an embodiment of this principle; comprising the CombiCooler, Cooler, Freezer and Wine Cooler, these stylish appliances have a total storage capacity of up to 626 litres.

The series is now available in Singapore at the V-ZUG Zugorama boutique in Scotts Square, which recently underwent a facelift by award-winning interior designer Peter Tay to showcase all four models, together with V-ZUG’s AiroClear Hood and Hob and the brand’s range of laundry appliances. 

Each appliance is designed to provide the utmost ease in the kitchen. Nifty functions include an InfinityShelf system that allows one to adjust their refrigerator’s layout and freezers with smart ice makers that refill automatically. 

The latest ClimateControl technology, an innovative cooling feature that helps to keep food fresher for longer, is a highlight of both the CombiCooler and Cooler refrigerators. It works by circulating air throughout to minimise changes in temperature, while the appliances’ drawer compartments contain individual humidity areas with lower and higher temperatures for meats and vegetables respectively. 

Similarly, the WineCooler offers two different climate zones for storing a wide selection of vino—perfect for wine connoisseurs who prefer to savour their prized bottles. What’s more, the appliance can be easily paired with the CombiCooler as an accompaniment; it also fits seamlessly into any modern or contemporary kitchen, thanks to its sleek design. These refrigerators boast front panels that are made from a single piece of chrome steel and drawers are constructed with solid metal.  

The brand’s renowned Swiss craftsmanship was recognised internationally when the company received three accolades including Best Brand of the Year at the Plus X Awards 2020; held annually in Germany, the ceremony fetes the innovations of notable technology and lifestyle brands around the world. This achievement acknowledges V-ZUG as a leader and developer of new and innovative technology and design, beating 700 other international brands for the coveted title.  

Coconut Peach Gum Brûlée 

For a healthier take on the classic crème brûlée, opt for more wholesome ingredients like peach gum; the gelatinous resin derived from peach trees is a nourishing and collagen-rich addition that also gives a jelly-like texture to this dessert.
