    READING, Pa., March 13 /CNW/ -- BlueStar(TM), manufacturer of
high-performance gas ranges and cooktops for the residential market, announced
today that renowned chef Marcus Samuelsson will host an invitation-only media
event in Toronto, marking BlueStar's official Canadian launch.
    At this exclusive media luncheon to be held at Dish Cooking Studios,
Samuelsson will prepare hand-picked recipes from his newly opened, New
York-based Merkato 55 restaurant.  As a BlueStar owner himself, Samuelsson
will demonstrate how BlueStar commercial-quality ranges can take cooking in
the home kitchen to an entirely new level.

inspiration from around the world.  His acclaimed Aquavit restaurant in New
York City features Scandinavian cuisine, while his latest cookbook "The Soul
of a New Cuisine: A Discovery of the Foods and Flavors of Africa," and Merkato
55 restaurant focus on the land of his birth.

markets exclusively to the residential market and is featured in the homes of
many of the world's top chefs and cooking enthusiasts. The ranges are stacked
with features generally restricted to professional chefs, but designed for the
home kitchen. BlueStar's unique 22,000 BTU open burner system is the most
powerful open burner on the market.  The ability to custom order a
BlueStar(TM) range with a choice of 190 custom colors opens up amazing new
possibilities for kitchen makeovers.
    Samuelsson, 36, has received numerous accolades, including the James
Beard Foundation award for "Rising Star Chef", and "Best Chef" New York.  He
was also recognized in Crain's New York Business' annual "40 under 40" and was
