Kitchenware: cocottes, pans, irons

Sometimes you ask me what things I have at home ... you see that I am a fan of good things although sometimes I cannot afford them. These are some of the pots, pans and irons and grills that I have from Le Creuset ... I love them, they are of great quality and like everything you have to take care of it but it's not complicated. I am buying these and other pieces very little by little because they are not cheap but with patience and a few years I am getting the things that I want to have in my kitchen.

My lettuce centrifuge

No, it is not the same to wash and let the lettuce drain, than to do it in a “centrifuge” - wear whatever you wear- :) I have been using this same drainer model for many years. The first one I had was green, I changed it one day to have the new one - you know, as we are the fans of certain products - and now I think the model in question has come out in red.

Serve paper cakes or paper cake stand

Taking advantage of the cheesy pink of the previous recipe, today I continue with this rosaaaa -cursi also- of this curious serves paper cakes that I found a few weeks ago walking around Bayonne. It was a fleeting visit. A walk to make the leap to France - which I don't have the pleasure to meet - and return to the Basque Country for dinner.

How Mortar, Morteruelo or Almirez is used

The Mortar This in a kitchen tool that is closely linked to my childhood and sure to that of many of you. I remember that in summer we were going to spend the day at Lake Castiñeiras, with the dishes, glasses, tablecloths and the marinated pork ribs - made by my mother in an old wooden mortar - the rest of the family also They brought food, so it was easier to organize the picnic day, Aunt Ana brought the tortillas, Grandma Maruja a pie - together, she had a great day and nothing was missing ... My grandfather, -a very familiar man I have many memories because he was the best grandfather in the world - he had a special gift for children, he put all the grandchildren around him and there, in the countryside, he didn't tell invented stories about the scars of the civil war that marked his body .

How a “Nordic Ware®” mold is used

Finally I will release my mold. It is beautiful and not the prettiest they have, but it is one of the prettiest I've found in a large store. The world of baking molds is exciting. Each product has its qualities and every time we see that we can find more different “pots” and not only for their shapes, but also for their qualities and materials.

How the Thermomix® cook-key works

Hi! We bring you some news and in passing we tell you how the Thermomix® cook-key works, the new complement for the TM5. We've always thought it didn't make much sense that the latest Thermomix® didn't connect to a mobile device or computer. Now it is possible in a certain way because it is still not possible to connect to other pages that are not the official platform and do not get to surf the internet.

How to use an Italian coffee maker

Since Izaskun gave me Guillaume Long's book, "To eat and drink," my 2-year-old coffee maker already follows different behavioral patterns. Now coffee tastes more like coffee, its flavor is more intense and for that you have to know how to take care of your coffee maker. Although there are two coffee makers at home, the Bra® - which I adore - and the Nespresso®, I have to confess that we use much more than what you see.

My fast pot

I have always been afraid of the issue of the express pot and the quick pot. I guess I had in mind the old pots that our mothers used, something more rudimentary. What I had always heard was the “care that can explode” and just for that, I had never put it at home, I have already seen an Italian coffee maker explode….

How to use the “Nordic Ware ®” molds

Hello everyone. I hope you had a great time on Halloween. We have not prepared anything special this year, the truth is that we have enjoyed the holiday in our own way, walking with Willy. Today I prepared a cake in this mold. Maybe this mold is not adequate, because what I have cooked is a normal cake, but I was dying to try it.

Skimmers: wok type, spider, perforated

Cooking classes begin in all schools in the country and I have already signed up for Telva this new season. Today remembering the course of last year, I teach you skimmers. Do they all serve the same? How many types of skimmer do you have at home? Just one? The skimmer can be a more or less flat piece, with a long handle for ease of use and that has a final part to collect food, surely perforated which is the most common in any house, but that is the most known or traditional version .

Graters for cheeses, vegetables, chocolates ...

They may seem dispensable, but I can assure you they are very comfortable. It is not necessary that you have one hundred thousand different graters, with which you have a well chosen one you will get along quite well, because to cut -for example- cheese in flakes we can use a simple potato peeler. This grater is for me an essential that everyone should have at least at home.

Where do you buy? your kitchen stores

What a flood of mails !!! From the Shopping Guide in Madrid a few days ago, I have received emails and more emails from people who ask about 'where to buy' in your provinces, towns, cities. Impossible to know them all, but since we are a big family, that can be solved in a pis-pas.

What a mandolin is and what it is for

Do you like to cook and you don't have a mandolin yet? You are cannon fodder for an upcoming gastronomic gift, friend, :-) Today I wanted to tell you about how a mandolin works, an expendable kitchen tool but like all, very practical. It is simple to use, although dangerous, beware! If you have it at home, never let a child drive it because it is a slicer and you can be disgusted because it really cuts and cuts.
