Create Amazing Meals With The Right Cookware

Dec 22, 2007
To be able to prepare lavish meals at home, a homemaker might choose to take a culinary cooking course at a local college or university. If they ventured into the kitchen with a recipe from a top-chef's cookbook, the meals could be amazing if the home chef used the right cookware and the cooking experiences alone will earn a home cook the title of "Top Chef" through a course of trial and error. With the right cookware used for the dishes that are prepared, the error rate will drop right away.

For cooking healthy meals, a home chef could select steamers to cook vegetables to perfection. This multi-purpose cookware choice will make vegetables such as asparagus tender and juicy without subjecting the tender sprouts to an hour under water. The steaming process will ensure that the vegetables are nutritious because the cooking process does not destroy the vitamins found in these delicate morsels.

A seasoned chef will maintain an arsenal of stockpots in the kitchen that are likely to be hung by hooks from the ceiling. The rushed tempo in a gourmet chef's kitchen will require large pots to be easily accessed and placed on the burners in a matter of seconds. The stockpots will be used throughout the day to prepare a variety of flavorful soups and some will be used to boil king crab legs, mollusks and shrimp to perfection.

A Chinese buffet can be fashioned from stainless steel buffet trays that will attract people as they enter the door. A culinary chef can use Chinese woks to prepare delicacies such as Egg Foo Young, Shrimp with Lobster Sauce, and incorporate the use of steamers to cook white rice that is fluffy every time. The wok can be used to fry or steam a variety of foods and a home entertainer will find woks a very practical method of keeping foods warm. This colorful cookware will blend with any color scheme because woks are accented with colors like silver, blue, red, and green.

A seasoned chef will rely heavily on roasting pans throughout the day to prepare meats that are juicy and flavorful. The preference for a certain shape might lead some chefs to cook roasts under tempered glass and others will prefer to prepare roasts using a roasting rack. The old, reliable metal roasting pans can be used to bake pastries with golden colors on the top and ensure that large portions of meat are seared to the right crispiness on the outside, with the right doneness within.

Some cooks will use pressure cookers to reduce cooking time considerably. The nutritious values in food will be protected but the cook will be able to tenderize meats and cut food costs down considerably by buying less than choice selections of meats. With the right cookware, a seasoned chef will be able to warm foods for hours. The versatility of fuels used for the warming process allow cooks to incorporate electricity, candle power or canned fuel sources to produce meals that wow guests throughout the night.
