BlueStar Celebrates Launch of Chef Ryan Scott’s New Cookbook

October 25, 2016

BlueStar introduces Online “How-to” Videos to Create Select Recipes from Chef Ryan Scott’s “One to Five” Cookbook at Home

Blandon, PA, October 25 – BlueStar®, manufacturer of high-performance appliances for the home, celebrates the launch of All-Star Chef Ryan Scott’s first cookbook, “One to Five: One Shortcut Recipe Transformed into Five Easy Dishes” with exclusive online videos demonstrating select recipes available only at

Ryan Scott is a chef, restaurateur and Emmy-Award winning food host. He appears regularly on national television, including Today and Rachael Ray, and is the host of The Ryan Scott Show, a weekly radio show. Ryan is chef and owner of Finn Town in San Francisco. “One to Five” is his first cookbook—endorsed by celebrated chefs and TV personalities including Rachael Ray, Sunny Anderson, Carla Hall, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb.

“When it comes to cooking at home, if I can’t prep it, cook it, and sit down to eat it in an hour or less, I don’t want to do it. It’s just that simple,” says Scott.  “One to Five” is cooking for real life: master one basic recipe and learn shortcut solutions to spin it into five quick, affordable, and crowd-pleasing dishes. Chef Scott offers ingenious tricks and guidance on stocking the fridge, freezer and pantry to help home cooks streamline the cooking process while demonstrating how to think creatively in the kitchen.

The BlueStar® Ryan Scott online cooking demos will focus on Portobello Mushrooms and include Marinated and Roasted Portobellos, Bello Ghanoush, Portobello Salsa and Portobello-Olive Mayo, as well as Portobello Ranch Fries and Mozzarella-Stuffed Crispy Portobello Burgers.

Scott redesigned his home kitchen in San Francisco with an eye toward home entertaining ease and simple recipes. He developed and tested recipes for his book there too. Says Scott: “Having the right equipment is essential to getting restaurant quality results at home… when people come to my house for dinner, they expect restaurant quality food….so I had to figure out how to deliver!”

“I am excited to be one of the first chefs in the country to have a full kitchen of BlueStar appliances including their new 36” Built-In Refrigerator. With so many new projects coming up such as a new restaurant and my cookbook,  I am able to do all of my prepping and cooking with ease with the ability to use the extra large capacity of both my fridge and my range,” says Scott. “I get the high quality results I need with the high 25K BTUs of my rangetop and was able to customize my unit with a side swing door and charbroiler.”

Chef Scott and his wife wanted to bring a little Hamptons, East Coast feel into their San Francisco beach house. The ability to use color to help create a light, beachy environment, yet maintain a professional feel, was important.  That could only be accomplished with BlueStar® pro appliances for the home.  With 750 different colors offered by the manufacturer, Ryan could have gone in many different directions, but his wife came up with the idea to add color with the knobs. The customization element of BlueStar® really allows anyone to create a dream kitchen.

Constructed with commercial-grade stainless steel, all BlueStar® products are designed to withstand the rigors of the busiest home kitchens. BlueStar® gas ranges provide the home chef with a cooking experience that only can be matched by a restaurant kitchen environment. The company’s first-ever Built-In Refrigeration Line, featuring top performance and unmatched customization, provides a seriously fresh take on premium food preservation that redefines the art of cooling. Home chefs can create a complete, coordinated look in the kitchen with a matching BlueStar range, ventilation hood and now chef-inspired refrigeration. For information, visit
