Earlier in November, I was fortunate to make the trip to Chicago to participate in training at The Monogram Design Center Chicago. For those who may not be familiar with Monogram, this is GE’s designer series of luxury kitchen appliances. They are sharp-looking! Chef Jon delighted trainees with live cooking demonstrations using the Pro Range and Advantium® Speedcooking oven. Trainees were invited to try all the different cooktops and ranges by cooking two of our own meals. (We prepared chicken breasts served with orzo and asparagus on day one and the perfect omelette for breakfast the next day. Download the recipe for the Perfect Omelette.) I have to confess, it was much easier to cook eggs completely with no browning on the induction stove. After trying the same method at home on my gas range, I had a few brown spots. While I used to like my omelette browned a bit, after last week, I am a devotee of no brown spots! How do you like your eggs/omelettes prepared?
Another win with GE Monogram appliances is the hearth oven for a gourmet pizza with a perfect crust in just two minutes. Check out the short video included in this post of Chef Jon showing us how it’s done! The hearth oven was fun, yet practical. I can easily see this being installed in some of my clients’ homes.
