Magimix ambassador and Good Chef Bad Chef's Adrian Richardson

e&s: Tell us a little about your background – what path led you to what you are doing today?

A: My family have always been fantastic cooks – my grandparents especially were outstanding and taught me a great deal. I got a job in a kitchen to pay for my flying lessons when I was 16; the flying lessons finished and the kitchen work stayed.

e&s: What does a typical day in the life of Adrian Richardson look like?

A: There is no such thing as a typical day for me, and I would not have it any other way. Some days I'm in the TV studio or having meetings with my staff at Bouvier Bar or La Luna Bistro. Other days I'm in the office (which I hate) or you'll find me in one of my kitchens or poking around the markets looking at seasonal produce.

e&s: We’d love to hear about who you’ve cooked for in your career.

A: I am always discrete about my customers, but they range from the most famous rock stars, famous Hollywood stars, prime ministers, politicians, high court judges and gangsters, but to me, the people that have saved up to come to my restaurants are the most important.

e&s: What is your philosophy when it comes to food and cooking? 

A: I like great produce, prepared with skill, care and presented as naturally and simply as possible.

e&s: We know you love meat. What else do you like to cook?

A: I love meat, but I also love cooking pasta, salads, and of course, anything that comes from the sea.

e&s: Who or what inspires you in the kitchen? 

A: Almost anyting inspires me. The season's trips to the market, my herb and vegetable garden, and my staff – they all inspire me. 

e&s: As a chef, cooking is about making things from scratch. Is this where Magimix comes in?

A: Magimix makes it so much easier to put things together, whether it’s slicing, dicing, chopping, emulsifying and even cooking. I use my Magimix almost every day.

 e&s: What are your go-to Magimix products and why? 

A: I use my Magimix food processor, that's perfect for making pasta dough, pizza dough and sweet pastry. 

e&s: You own the popular La Luna Bistro in North Carlton. Can you let us in on any exciting ventures ahead?

A: My new venture is Bouvier Bar, it’s a New York-style bar in Brunswick East that offers great food, wine, cocktails and beer on tap, as well as a great function space.

e&s: What’s your favourite area/neighbourhood in Melbourne and why?

A: All of Melbourne rocks. The CBD at night, the markets and neighbourhood dining strips during the day, it’s such a fantastic city.

e&s: What does your ideal Saturday look like?

A: The perfect Saturday involves making pancakes with my sons, then hopping back into bed to eat them. It's very messy but lots of fun.

Use your KitchenAid this NYE

Posted on Fri, December 30, 2016

Entertaining for NYE has never been easier with this cocktail recipe from our friends at KitchenAid.

 

FIZZY BOMBAY CHERRY LEMONADE

Fizzy Bombay Cherry Lemonade

Cherries are sweet, tart and full of flavor. Because their season is so short, make it a habit to find different ways to use them in recipes. From pies to tarts to cakes to ice creams, cherries are as diverse an ingredient as they are delicious.

You can make an easy fizzy cherry lemonade drink with the help KitchenAid appliances: the KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series 5-Speed Cordless Hand BlenderPro Line® and KitchenAid Sparkling Beverage Maker. 

Fizzy Bombay Cherry Lemonade             Image: KitchenAid Sparkling Beverage Maker. 

First, start by carbonating the water using the Sparkling Beverage Maker. Fill the bottle with cold water up to the level mark, which is about 8 ounces of liquid. Make sure the handle is in the upright raised position and the bottle lever is pulled forward. Then, insert the bottle by sliding it against the lever on your Sparkling Beverage Maker. The white tip should be immersed in the water in the bottle. Carbonate the liquid by pulsing the gas into the water for a few short bursts by pressing the handle down. Do this until the desired level of carbonation is achieved. Seal the bottle airtight with the cap and place in refrigerator until ready to use

Fizzy Bombay Cherry Lemonade

To prepare the cherry lemonade base of the drink, place cherries, lemon juice, honey powder, himalayan sea salt, and pepper in the jar of your KitchenAid® Hand Blender.

Fizzy Bombay Cherry Lemonade

Screw the lid on, move the button to the lock position, and blend at maximum speed (setting #5) until all the ingredients are completely blended.

Once this is done, you can choose to filter the liquid by passing it through a strainer lined with cheese cloth, or use the cherry lemonade base as is. You can also store the liquid in an airtight container in the refrigerator if you aren’t using it right away.

Fizzy Bombay Cherry Lemonade

To make this drink, mix 1 part cherry lemonade base to 1 part soda and serve in chilled glasses.

Fizzy Bombay Cherry Lemonade

Garnish with fresh mint leaves if desired. And just like that, you have a deliciously refreshing beverage, perfect for summer!

Posted on Thu, December 08, 2016

Christopher Montebello is the creator and founder of the award-winning Let Them Eat Cake in South Melbourne who specialise in bespoke cakes for weddings, birthdays, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and other special occasions. He’s even made cakes for the stars, including Oprah Winfrey. With the festive season upon us, we chatted to Christopher about his top baking tips, what he loves to cook and his favourite Christmas recipe.

IMG_2472.jpg

e&s: Can you tell us a little bit about your background?

C: I trained in Melbourne and completed my apprenticeship at the famous Monarch Cake Shop in St Kilda. Throughout the 70s to 90s I worked at a range of established cake shops and opened the first Let Them Eat Cake in Paddington, Brisbane. I spent 10 years up in Queensland then moved home to Melbourne and opened Let Them Eat Cake in 1994.

e&s Tell us more about Let Them Eat Cake?

C: We work with our customers to design cakes and transform ideas into works of art. Our expert team of artists, sculptors, pastry chefs and designers create beautiful and imaginative cakes that celebrate every occasion.

e&s Who is your biggest inspiration in the kitchen?

C: I think I’m most inspired by cities, countries and couture. My business has been built around creating something new and pushing the boundaries to come up with creative cake designs.

e&s What's your favourite thing to cook/bake?

C: I absolutely love cooking Italian rice puddings because it's the simplest, but the most beautiful thing to make and eat.

e&s What are your essential cooking tools?

C: A piping bag; a pallete knife which is a wide, flat knife with a rounded tip; and a small paring knife that is ideal for peeling and other small or intricate work.

e&s What appliances would you recommend to a budding baker?

C: I recommend getting yourself a good mixer and juicer. Personally, I enjoy using KitchenAid and Smeg mixers. I've had four KitchenAid mixers now and they've been terrific. I also use them at my cooking schools and demos.

e&s What can you use a mixer for?

C: If you love baking, a mixer is the perfect tool. You can use your mixer to whip cream, egg whites and pretty much anything that needs to be whipped, mixed or kneaded. They are great when you're making royal icing too. 

e&s What is your top tip when it comes to home baking?

C: Preparation is key and this includes making sure you’ve weighed off your ingredients correctly. Ensure you read the recipe properly and follow it to a tee. Have a good oven that is heated to 180 degrees, and importantly, be patient. Patience is a virtue when it comes to baking.

e&s What is your Christmas cooking tradition?

How to style your kitchen: top tips from an interior designer

Posted on Thu, November 10, 2016

At times we get a bit flustered by kitchen styling, as we get confused by what works best. To assist we chatted to interior designer Michelle Hart, owner of Bask Interiors, who shared her tips on how to style and easily update the look of your kitchen. 

e&s: What are this season's top looks and trends when it comes to styling your kitchen?

M: Leading into summer and the festive period I’m seeing a growing trend towards bolder colours. We're turning to the deeper hues of gemstone colours including ruby reds, emerald greens, sapphire blues and amethyst tones, and this is also reflected in kitchenware and appliances.

Natural materials are timeless and can add texture and warmth in a kitchen. For example, you can easily incorporate accessories like a wooden chopping board or a simple woven basket. If are working with a flat canvas, such as a white kitchen, a mix of marble, stone and timber can create warmth, character and texture.

e&s: Coming into summer what appliances and products are you seeing in kitchens?

M: When I was overseas recently, I saw red everywhere and now I'm finding this is subtly making its way into our kitchen, particularly with appliances. While people still love their monochrome kitchen appliances, they are getting braver and bolder in their colour choices. First we saw people using pastel colours, now they are incorporating bright reds, oranges and blues.

e&s: What ideas do you have for creating a festive vibe in the kitchen?

M: We are lucky to celebrate the Christmas and New Year period during summer and there are ways to incorporate a summery feel in the kitchen. I like to add foliage, including eucalyptus leaves, holly leaves or Australian native plants, such as the banksia which is one of my favourites with its vibrant red colour. You can add a festive touch of gold in the kitchen with candles or a statement bowl or plate. Appliance wise, KitchenAid have brought out metallic appliances which is a perfect festive addition to your kitchen.

e&s: What are some quick ways to update your kitchen's style?

M: There are so many ways you can easily and instantly update your kitchen, without the need to undergo a complete kitchen renovation. With such a large range of tapware available, in different finishes and colours, you can change the look of your kitchen by simply adding a new tap. You can also change cabinet doors or the handles on your draws to update your kitchen's look. Even rearranging the appliances on your kitchen bench, or introducing new appliances or kitchenware, can instantly update your kitchen.

Photographer: Nikole Ramsay Stylist: Michelle Hart (Bask Interiors)

e&s: What are your top tips for a clean and organised kitchen?

M:

  • I am a big on keeping the bench clutter free and I try to avoid using my bench as a dumping ground. I know this isn't always easy, but putting paperwork and mail out of sight is a quick way to remove clutter. 
  • Using containers is one of the easiest ways to keep your kitchen organised, especially in your pantry. You'll know where to find things and it keeps the kitchen looking neat and tidy. 
  • If your kitchen has enough space, many people assign a designated area for a scullery, appliance cupboard or even a butler’s pantry. Although we don’t all have the luxury of space, perhaps there’s an area where you can keep your kitchen items organised in the one spot.
  • A clean fridge for me is essential. Personally, I don’t put fridge magnets, bills etc on the fridge. I like to show off my fridge as they’re a pretty stylish appliance these days. If you have kids, I know it's nice to stick their drawings up on the fridge, so it’s about finding balance I think and there’s ways of making this look neat.

What are the little things you can do to create a simple but stylish look this summer?

  • Fruit bowl – a bowl of limes, cherries or lemons is an inexpensive way of adding a beautiful pop of colour. 
  • Greenery – a plant, live branch, foliage or bunch of herbs in a jug add life to your kitchen space. And makes the kitchen feel more alive and homely. In particular, I like the more hardy and succulent plants such as a hoya plant or devil’s ivy. I've noticed the Chinese money plant is starting to become popular. It's a beautiful smaller plant that is quite rare and everyone is trying to get a hold of it at the moment.
  • Chopping boards or a mortar and pestle – a simple kitchen accessory that you can place near your cooktop or against a splashback. You can also use a simple wooden utensil holder as an easy way to incorporate timber.
  • Tea towels – there are some beautiful tea towels, linens and napkins available in a range of colours and patterns to bring in texture and colour to your kitchen.

Miele releases EVS vacuum sealing drawer

Posted on Mon, November 07, 2016

Vacuum sealing units are becoming increasingly popular in modern kitchens as they have the ability to increase the storage life of food, intensify flavours of marination and portion food after preparation.

On November 1, Miele released a EVS vacuum sealing drawer which allows you to bring the convenience, flavours and technology into your kitchen. 

unnamed (1)-1.jpg             The EVS Vacuum Sealing Drawer can be installed below any 45cm or 60cm built-in unit. 

The Miele's vacuum sealing drawer is a chamber-type vacuum sealing unit with a powerful vacuum pump. 

Wondering why you would need this drawer in your kitchen? This drawer has many benefits including: 

- Preparation of sous-vide cooking -  Food is vacuum sealed in preparation for sous-vide cooking.
- Marinating Food - Ideal for marinating food, vacuum sealing improves the marinating process by intensifying the flavours.
- Storage of Food -  Vacuum-sealed food has an extended shelf-life of 3 to 5 times as well as offering better protection against freezer burn and saves space for storage
- Vacuum Sealing in Containers As an alternative to vacuum sealing in bags it is also possible to use standard containers. A connection is located in the vacuum chamber.
- Portioning of food - Portioning is useful for storing foods such as coffee, herbs, meat or cheese as it allows the correct amount to be used when needed.
- Resealing food in original packagingFoods such as nuts, seasoning or chips can be resealed in their original packaging. This protects the contents against moisture and premature spoilage.

The drawer is opened using the push-to-open mechanism, and the vacuum chamber is revealed when the drawer is fully open.

Kitchen Appliances to Save You Time

Posted on Mon, October 31, 2016

Kitchen Appliances to save your time

Life is busy and messy, and sometimes the kitchen, which is often referred to as the heart of the home, can require the most amount of work.

To make your life easier, we give you advice on products which will help save you time in the kitchen.

Food Disposal Systems

If you’re forever spending time cleaning and worrying about food getting stuck down your stink, then investing in a food disposal system would be the right way to go. A food disposal system, (such as the InSinkerator), offers a convenient way to dispose of food waste in your home. This system takes finely ground food waste through the plumbing system in the same way toilet waste is treated. Just about any kind of food can go right down the drain, thus minimising the handling of food scraps and reducing the time spent preparing and cleaning up after meals.

Hot Water Taps

Spend more time enjoying your tea than preparing it. Time and time again, we boil the kettle, wanting to make a cup of tea, but get distracted and forget about our hot drink. Taps which allow you to have hot, chilled and sparkling water on tap is not only a great way to save space, but saves time by having all your home drinking solutions in one place.

Pyrolytic Ovens

Cleaning ovens isn’t the most enjoyable task, and is often something that we put off doing. Pyrolytic Ovens such as the featured Miele 60cm Pyrolytic Single Oven, uses high temperatures (around 400⁰c) to incinerate any food residues on the oven walls into a fine ash. Once the cleaning cycle has completed, the ash can be safely wiped away using only a damp cloth. Now we have no excuse to put off cleaning our ovens, especially now that it is done with a touch of a button.

Induction Cooktop

Save time preparing meals with fast heating induction cooktops. Because there are no naked flames and the cooktop starts to cool down the moment the pot is removed, these cooktops are a much safer option for families. Boiling large pots of water is a breeze, and frying is quick and simple. But not only are induction cooktops great for high-heat cooking, they offer the chef excellent temperature precision when it comes to simmering and melting. Needless to mention that cleanup is a breeze with the single glass surface so it’s so easy to wipe down and clean.

Get to know Sub Zero Wolf.

Posted on Wed, September 21, 2016

We recently sat down with Managing Director, Andrew Mumford and Marketing Manager, Frances Lynch of Sub Zero Wolf to find out more about the origins of the company, product favourites and quirky features that makes Sub Zero Wolf the market leaders in luxury refrigeration and ovens and help support the 'home chefs'. 

     CB_4C_BlackR_Md.jpg

Established in 1945 by Westye F Bakke in Madison, Wisconsin, the family run business recently celebrated their 70th birthday. 

Sub Zero Wolf focuses on design, product engineering, quality of build and producing a luxury domestic appliance. It is for this reason that Sub Zero only manufacturers 80-100 fridges each day to ensure quality control in the highest regard. 

In the 1940's, Sub-Zero worked closely with world renowned architect, Frank Lloyd Wright to develop integrated refrigeration. Since then, every fridge manufactured is serviced and vented from the front. In 1954, Sub-Zero Wolf were the first to release the food preservation system of dual refrigeration – separate cooling systems for refrigerator and freezer to ensure optimal humidity and temperature in both zones

Sub-Zero has 48 models in the range offering a food preservation solution to suit any lifestyle. All full height models have a consistent height ensuring even lines and a perfect design aesthetic when multiple models are installed together. (as pictured below). 

             SZ_ICBIC-24R_ICBIC-24F_ICBIW-24-1.jpg 
             Image: Sub Zero 610mm Wine Storage, Sub Zero 610mm Freezer column and 610mm Refrigerator column

When asked if Andrew had a personal favourite in the Sub-Zero range, Andrew chose the 762mm Integrated Wine Storage which he referred to as a "beverage center." This appliance is unlike anything else on the market - there are 3 different temperature zones to ensure that your beverages are stored at their optimum level.

This beverage center allows you to store your icy cold beer, refreshing champagne and soft drinks between 1 degree and 7 degrees C and your wine can be stored anywhere between 5 degrees to 18 degrees C. To make sure that you're always stocked up for any event, the top fridge drawer comfortably stores 2 slabs in the drawer. 

                                 CroppedFocusedImage800120050-50-ICBIW-30R-wine-storage-lifestyle.jpg 
                                    Image: 762mm Integrated Wine Storage

Moving along the Wolf range, Andrew's favourite product is the 1524mm Dual Fuel Range Ovens. These ovens have two full-sized ovens that are both multi-function which means that you're never restricted to what you want to cook. If you want to batch baking with a fan-forced oven, where you have the capacity to bake 120 biscuits in one batch bake, and at the same time you have 1.5m of cooking space, allows you to have a substantial cooking area. You also have the capacity to have different configurations on top such as tepanyaki plate, up to six gas burners or a BBQ.

ICBDF604CF.jpgImage: Wolf 1524mm Dual Fuel Range Oven

Another unique feature is the dual-stacked gas burner which provides the full spectrum of control - an ultralow flame ideal for simmering up to a high heat for boiling and searing. The Wolf simmer control option gives you the same level of control as induction meaning you can leave chocolate on the stove for 5-6 hours and it will never burn to the base.
