Entries from TurboChef tagged with 'events' Jonathan Waxman Cooks at the International Builders' Show
It was busy week in Orlando last week as TurboChef enjoyed its second annual appearance at the International Builders' Show. The conversations were many, the enthusiasm for the oven has high, and the daily live demonstrations – we conducted three each day – were standing room only. The highlight of the week for me was Chef Jonathan Waxman, who took the stage to cook an exceptional three course meal that included broiled diver scallops, roasted rack of lamb, and chocolate soufflés for 20 guests in about 18 minutes. Jonathan is an exceptional chef and someone you'd be just as pleased to have as a guest at your dinner table as you would to have him preparing the meal. Concentrating on fresh, seasonal ingredients, his "less is more" philosophy delivers food that feels familiar but tastes absolutely exceptional. You can find a collection of his recipes in his recently published cookbook, A Great American Cook, or taste them for yourself on the menu of Barbuto, his Italian bistro on Washington Steet in New York City's West Village. I recommend the roast chicken. Jonathan's biggest crowd pleaser at the Builders' Show may have been his diver scallops, hand-harvested by divers off the coast of Maine and flown in that morning for the show. He broiled them in the TurboChef Speedcook Oven on a preheated grill pan to deliver a nice sear, then polished them of with Belgian endive and a fresh blood orange vinaigrette. While I'll concede the most important ingredients of genius, experience, and improvisation to Chef Waxman, here's a best shot on goal to recreate that dish for you to enjoy: Broiled Diver Scallops with Belgian Endive and Blood Orange Vinaigrette TurboChef Cook Time: 7 minutes Conventional Cook Time: 30 minutes Blood Orange Vinaigrette 2 blood oranges 1/4 cup red...
New York Loves TurboChef
We love to cook. And with an oven like the TurboChef, we love to show and tell. So a few days ago in New York City at our premium authorized dealer – MCKB – we hosted a TurboChef cooking experience for over 100 interested New Yorkers who came to witness, experience and taste the TurboChef cook firsthand. These events are great fun for us because we get out of the office and into a showroom where we can hear precisely what questions and comments people have about TurboChef. One gentleman, who had just recently ordered a TurboChef Speedcook Oven, came early to “see what else the oven could do.” He was delighted to learn more about the oven features, particularly the lower oven and how it compliments the speedcook oven. “So if I'm throwing a party, we can use the lower oven as a warming drawer. Perfect. I can hold all the entrées until everything is ready, then serve it all up nice and warm at the same time,” he exclaimed. His wife also joined us and wanted to study the design more closely. She was delighted to learn that the TurboChef Speedcook Oven had just won an award from Interior Design magazine's readers last month in NYC. Other comments from the evening: “The single wall oven will be a hit in NY because it gives you the TurboChef performance in a small kitchen.” “This is the nicest chateaubriand I have ever tasted.” “These cook times are hard to believe until you see the food go in the oven, then come out looking great, then tasting sensational. This is a wow product.” “I'm a kitchen designer and I had to come see the product because many of my clients are asking about it. I can see why people are so...
