All Clad Cookware

Cooking in Style with All Clad

I’ve grown up with a couple phrases stuck in my brain. Both offer sage advice, and both come straight from the mouths of my parents:

“You get what you pay for.” And, “don’t waste your money on anything fancy-schmancy.”

I feel like those thoughts collide when it comes to cookware. I have always settled for affordable non-stick cookware in the kitchen, replacing it every so often when I put too much muscle into cleaning. Teflon is non-stick, not non-scrape.

I felt like I could start looking for something that was “what I paid for” AND “fancy-schmancy” at the same time.

All Clad Cookware

As far as brands that mesh those two worlds together nicely, All Clad cooking pots seemed like the best place to start. High quality, higher priced, elegant, and options to choose from…sounds like functional “fancy-schmancy” to me!

One thing that stood out to me was the many different cookware lines All Clad offered. Here is a quick breakdown on all of their lines:

All Clad Cookware

Stainless and Stainless with D5 Technology

I combine these two because of their one similarity: They are designed to be used with induction ovens. The base layer of both collections is induction stainless steel (also called magnetic stainless steel), which is necessary to interact with the electrical current in induction cooking.

The difference is in the layering. The All Clad Stainless collection has a top layer of 18/10 stainless steel with an aluminum core (middle layer). While the D5 Technology has an 18/10 stainless steel core in between two layers of aluminum, in between another 18/10 layer on the top, and the induction base layer.

Perfect for an induction oven, and the 18/10 stainless cooking surface is easy to clean.

One problem. I don’t have an induction oven, so all the other collections are open for me.

MC2

The MC2 line is similar in construction to the Stainless line. The main difference being that the bottom layer is brushed aluminum instead of stainless steel. Aluminum is a good conductor, so it will spread the heat more evenly than stainless steel, but it is also much lighter.

LTD2

Also closely connected to another line, the LTD2 line has five layers like the Stainless D5 Technology line. This time the bottom layer is a dishwasher safe anodized aluminum layer.

Copper Core and Cop R Chef

These last two lines take it up a notch from standard copper bottom cookware.

All of the metals used in All Clad cookware have their strengths: stainless steel is durable and easy to clean; aluminum is light and a good conductor of heat; copper is a phenomenal conductor. Copper spreads the heat quickly and evenly.

The Cop R Chef line is made up of three layers: a 18/10 stainless steel cooking surface; aluminum core; and a copper exterior. Like I said, great for conducting heat.

The downfall of copper is that it tarnishes easily and that can be hard to clean. Luckily, there is Copper Core.

I feel like Copper Core is best at using the strengths and limiting the weaknesses. As stated in the name, it has a copper core, hidden away where it can conduct away without visibly tarnishing. Surrounding the copper are layers of aluminum to continue conducting smoothly while keeping the overall weight down. And lastly, 18/10 stainless steel interior and exterior for an easy to clean product.

When it comes down to it, everyone has their own tastes. All Clad offers something for everyone. Its “fancy-schmancy” time!

how to cook an amazing turkey

How to Cook an Amazing Turkey

A perfectly cooked turkey can be the highlight of your Thanksgiving dinner. But how do you cook your turkey so that it turns out moist and flavorful? Some people prefer using the deep fryer, but they are unsafe and soaking your turkey in oil, may be the least healthy option available.

Steps to Cooking an Amazing Turkey

Thaw your turkey properly

Nothing ruins a holiday like food poisoning. If you defrost your turkey too quickly you can get everyone at your dinner table feeling a little bit like the infamous scene from The Exorcist. To avoid salmonella don’t stuff your turkey with stuffing.

If you don’t thaw it enough, you’re turkey will take eons to cook. And no matter how yummy that turkey tastes, no one wants to wait nine hours for it to cook.

how to cook an amazing turkey

Thaw it right

If you are defrosting your turkey in the fridge it will take a few days, depending on the size of your turkey.

Two hours before you plan to bake your turkey, pull it out of the fridge and allow it to come to room temperature. If you cook your turkey at room temperature rather than just pulled from the fridge, you’ll significantly cut down on the cooking time. Cooking time can seriously impact the overall outcome of the quality of the turkey. You don’t want it to take too long to cook so the meat becomes dry, but you also want to make sure that the turkey is completely cooked. Like chicken, undercooked turkey leads to all sorts of health problems.

Season it right

A personal favorite is a quick rub down of a garlic and melted butter mixture. If you want, you can add more baste every hour or hour and a half. This will affect the cooking time slightly, however.

Set the right temperature

Cook your turkey at 400 degrees. Depending on the size of your turkey this will take somewhere between 3-6 hours. Naturally, larger turkeys will take longer too cook. Be sure to account for this when planning the sides you’ll include with your meal and when they should be prepared.

It’s a little known secrete but one of the most important parts of cooking a perfect turkey is having perfectly cooked side dishes.

Lift it up

Consider adding a roasting rack to the turkey pan to allow air and heat to flow evenly around the turkey, cooking it more evenly and giving your crispier skin all around. Not cooking the turkey in the juices makes sure that the entire bird receives the same temperature throughout the cooking process. It also helps leave clean and easy to use juices forgravy.

Let it set

After you pull your turkey out of the oven, let it set for about 20 minutes to ensure that the juices and flavors settle into the meat. After you cut the meat, let it set in the juices for a few minutes. The meat will be moist and flavorful. It’s important to remember that turkeys and other meat continue to cook after they’re pulled out of the oven. Just make sure that everything is cooked completely before you serve the bird to any guests.

Make sure to set the turkey on a tray and cover with foil so that the turkey sits in the juices so it can soak up even more flavor before you serve it. When you’re ready, present the bird and the sides to the dinner party and enjoy your amazing turkey dinner.

Catering Crockery

The Many Questions You Should Ask When Buying Crockery for Your Catering Business

When you are buying crockery for use in your catering establishment or company, you will need to consider many things. The trouble is that when people are put on the spot, they often forget a lot of very important factors.

So to help out the potential crockery buyers, here are a bunch of questions you should ask yourself when buying crockery for a catering business/establishment.

Ask yourself if the crockery is durable enough for your purposes. Are you posing delicately sliced salmon into small pyramids on the plate or slopping down stew with a big steel spoon? Pick the crockery that is up to the task for your kitchen.

Catering Crockery

Is the crockery the right size for your kitchen?

It largely depends on your food, but if you are serving giant pizzas on a crockery plate then you need to know you can store the plate when you close at night. Are they going to fit into your cupboards and are they going to fit into the dishwasher?

Is your crockery going to be put into a dishwasher?

Or is it going to be washed by hand? You will need to pick the right crockery for the task. There are some very ornate plates that will not do well in the dishwasher.

Do you need shatterproof crockery?

There are certain kinds of crockery that are safer than others. You may need a type of shatterproof crockery and glassware depending on who you are serving to.

Is your Catering Crockery up to the task?

If your business serves to people who eat outside at buffets then you will need a lighter plate because people will feel uncomfortable standing with a heavy plate. If you are serving to children then you need to make sure the crockery items are safe and consider using plastic. If you are serving in a Japanese style restaurant, then the public may see a lot of your cookware crockery, in which case is it professional looking or pretty enough to be seen by the public?

Does the crockery style suit your establishment?

It is not a case of picking a few nice ceramic pots and plates. There is a wide selection of crockery choices that will, each having their own character and style. You should pick the ones that most suit your establishment.

What colour do you want?

Most companies will choose white plates because they act like a white frame so that people can better admire their food, but this is not a forgone conclusion. You can have any colour crockery you wish, and can even alternate colours to suit the dishes you are serving. There is no need to stick to white just because everybody else is.

What shape should your crockery be?

Most people will go for a theme, but the most common shapes are circles, squares and ovals. Again however, do not let other peoples choices influence yours. If you feel that your food would be better served on different shaped plates then search them out. Creativity can never be wrong, just different.

Steak Recipes

Stir Your Taste Buds with Mouth Watering Steak Recipes

One of the very first steps of cooking a perfect steak is making a choice of the right cut of beef. We all would love a cut that is tender and has lots of marbling. The best cuts of steak are considered to be coming from the rib, short loin or the tenderloin primal cuts. These cuts of beef contribute in making the best steaks because they are from the muscles and they do not go through much exercise. These therefore are very tender.

All steaks are not equal.

You will find different cuts of beef at the supermarket that have the word “steak” in their names. One of the most popular steaks is the New York steak. It has a great flavor and is highly tender. A naked can however discern a high quality steak from a lesser one. All you need is to know what to look for and what marbling is all about.

Marbling indicates the little flecks of fat occurring naturally within the muscle of the meat. The more marbling the meat has the more flavor will it have. But it indicates that the flavor will vary as well. You must have often noticed that at a butcher’s shop one steak costs more than the other. The pricier one must have had significantly more marbling.

Steak Recipes

Quality determinants like prime.

Choice and select can be highly helpful but every steak you buy will not have these designations. But if they do, then prime is the best quality that is followed by choice and select. These quality designations are dependent on large parts of marbling. Therefore, even the meat is not graded, you can distinguish it from the rest by the marbling it has.

After you have chosen the correct cut of meat, it is now time to take them to your kitchen! Since it requires perfection in timing, temperature and seasoning, cooking a steak is a great test of your culinary skills. Since a good cut of meat is not cheap, getting it wrong will be a big blow to your taste buds, ego and pocketbook. Cooking the perfect steak is not the easiest thing in the world and with practice you can master it.

Let us now have a look how you can prepare one of the most favorite dishes of all steak lovers- grilled steak and onions with rosemary balsamic butter sauce.

Ingredients:

  • 4 New York strip steaks, 1 1/4-inch-thick
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 4 ounces chilled unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 large fresh rosemary sprigs

Chimenea

The Origin And Evolution Of The Chimenea

Chimenea, which is sometimes referred as an outdoor fireplace, have become extremely popular accessories for cook-outs, parties and add value to the décor of your garden. But, now the questions arise as to where have they originated from and what are they made up of. When you find the answers to all such questions, you will get a complete idea about the important useful characteristics of the chimenea.

Chimenea

Origin

Greek author Plato had once remarked that “Necessity is the mother of all inventions”, and families were in need of keeping themselves warm in cold atmosphere of the desert of Mexico. Chimenea finds its origin years back to the Mexican tribesmen. These people developed the chimenea from clay and made them harder in the rays of the sun. They were covered for protection against rain. Originally, the chimenea was developed as portable fireplaces for keeping the family warm during the night. Sometimes, they were also used for cooking purposes.

Materials which are readily available in the days of the ancient tribes from Mexico were used for first making the chimenea. The construction of the chimenea was done with pot bellies and openings in front for the purpose of burning wood. They were topped with a chimney and flue in order to direct the smoke away from the members of the family. The chimenea was then left for curing in the rays of the sun for hardening the material.

Recent Times

The chimeneas is seen to be constructed with the use of various different materials in the recent times. Though clay is still being used for making the chimenea, on account of its lesser durability in comparison to other available materials, its use is not that regular. Though it is a fact that the construction of the chimenea has evolved over time via significant advancements and more durable materials, clay has lost out in the race as it succumbs to moisture and heat, thus resulting in cracks which appear eventually in the structure. The life of the clay chimenea can be prolonged with the use of covers for protection against rain and sunlight.

Some of the materials which are popularly used in recent times are cast aluminium, copper, and also cast iron. The chimenea adds a distinct touch to the garden space along with providing features such as cooking equipment and an outdoor fireplace. The choice of material to be used for your chimenea is completely dependent on your taste and need. Some of the factors which you need to consider are the climatic conditions of the region you reside and your exact requirement from the chimenea.

So, this makes it clear that the chimenea is not just one more piece of utility which rests in your garden and is good to view. It is actually a practical cooking equipment, and an excellent outdoor fireplace which has been around from many years now. It has evolved in appearance and material, but it still serves the basic needs for which it was intended.

Salad Skewers

Serve Up Healthy, Gourmet Appetizers

Don’t allow all those mouthwatering delights to stop you from partying. You don’t have to feel guilty about having fun and eating to your heart’s content as long as you dish up healthy treats on your next party. With some creativity, you can make nutritious starters look elegant and absolutely delicious. Plus, by serving yummy and nourishing appetizers, you save time as these are generally a cinch to make; and you save money as well. Serving healthy appetizers is really a good thing, especially if you’re on a diet and you want to make sure that what you’re eating isn’t going to make you gain a lot of weight.

Here are a few healthy options that you can include in your menu. Or have a professional caterer concoct dishes that include these healthy, scrumptious ingredients.

1. Stuffed Mushrooms

Mushrooms are earthy delights that contain substances and minerals which enhance the flavor of other foods. These are pretty versatile, and they can be stuffed with all sorts of things. Also, because of their small size, most mushrooms can be used as attractive and tasty vessels for appetizers. Mushrooms can be topped with savory meat, including fish and seafood, vegetables, cheese, bread crumbs, and also juicy peppers.

2. Eggplants and Zucchinis

Create bite-size eggplant or zucchini napoleons. Layer slices of grilled or fried vegetables with cream cheese, like parmesan or ricotta. Add more texture and flavor using grilled asparagus or cherry tomatoes. If you prefer baked goodies, use zucchinis. Slice in one-inch sections, and get some of the flesh out. Stuff with cheese and vegetables, and flavor with salt and pepper.

3. Salad Skewers

Simply arrange salad ingredients on a stick. Have some crispy greens, tomatoes, fragrant basil leaves, olives, or peppers on a skewer. Lightly grill if preferred. Drizzle with dressing. Or place a teaspoon of vinaigrette in a shallow glass and artfully position skewer in it.

Salad Skewers

4. Meat Sticks

If you’re planning on cooking meat on sticks, marinate the meat first for a couple of hours. Use low calorie meat, such as fish, chicken or turkey. Afterwards, spear meat alternating with vegetables, like zucchinis, tomatoes, or onions. Glaze with zesty sauce.

5. Stuffed Vegetables

There are so many ways to stuff veggies with yummy, healthy foods. Use an endive, a salad green, and create an endive boat. Pull out leaves and fill each section with a light salad, like a crab salad or maybe a fresh veggie salad. If you desire something sweeter, slice cantaloupes or melons, and place these in endive leaves. Crumble some ricotta or goat cheese on top, or drizzle with dressing. Artichoke hearts are also wonderful vessels that you can top with cooked spinach and cheese. To brown that cheese, pop stuffed veggie in the oven for a few minutes.

6. Veggie Wraps

Use lettuce or spring roll wrapper to wrap up meats, veggies or fruits. Drizzle with chosen dressing or have dressing on the side. Pita bread or flat breads can also be used instead of lettuce.

7. Seafood Delights

Shrimps, fish, shells, and scallops are some of the tastiest sources of meat which, fortunately, are also low in calories. Shrimp cocktails and salads are scrumptious fare, while fried fish sticks are lip-smacking when paired with crunchy chips. Meats from various shells can also be speared and grilled, or added to other dishes. Scallops are also versatile as these can be used in main courses or in appetizers.
