Kitchen Things We Love!

I used to work for a high-end caterer who made exquisite food for Pittsburgh's elite. Everything he did was top-notch and he prided himself on making it all from absolute scratch, the hard way. 

 

I was on board with this idea until I had to whip copious amounts of cream by hand. (All these years later, my left bicep is still bigger than the right.)  

 

Hand whisks are fine for whisking eggs for an omelet or whatever, but battery-operated whisks and electric mixers with whisk attachments exist and so...

 

The items listed here are kitchen things I love and tools that I think will make your job easier and yield the same results because now I can never wear short sleeves and I don't want that to happen to you.  

 

What are your favorite kitchen things? I would love to hear from you. Drop me a line at: sylvia@thenighttimecook.com

The stainless steel zester has sharp blades that zests citrus fruits without grabbing the bitter pith. It also makes perfect peels for candied fruit or a lemon twist for your morning espresso.

If you've tried to flip a delicate piece of fish with a regular spatula, then you know what a gamble it is. A fish spatula has slots to drain liquid, and it's flexible enough to flip  fish without any tears.

I have a great knife set, but the bread knife's handle is level with the blade causing my knuckles to scrape every time I cut through my loaf. No one wants knuckle-skin with their baguette so buy an off-set bread knife.

Saves your cookies and your pans. Nuff said.

 Why We Like This

 

Because no one likes hard, little bits. Rinse, sift, strain, and blend into smooth, and light magnificence.

When one of these things doesn't look like the other...

Use a scooper to guarantee uniformity and even-baking every time.
