I waited with much excitement and anticipation on Thursday because the two new All Clad pans I had ordered were going to be delivered that day. You are probably thinking “What?! Who gets excited over PANS?!” I do. I don’t get excited over Coach purses, diamond rings or Jimmy Choo’s. For me it’s pans and kitchen stuff (and cars, thanks to two car crazy brothers.) I enjoy baking and cooking, and having the best pans and equipment, make it all the more fun and enjoyable. When I talk about kitchen equipment, I always have to smile because my friend Tammi would always tease me about my toaster. She said that only I would think to own a $300 toaster. That may be true, but we Brits love our toast! I got tired of mediocre toasters that claimed to “toast.” I love my Dualit toaster and after four years, it still produces magnificently golden, crisp, toast.
Broilers are different so you might need more or less time.
Before I go, I wanted to tell you that today is St George’s Day, the patron saint of England. He doesn’t get much recognition even though he did slay a dragon (OK…maybe not) St Patrick always steals the limelight with his green beer and Irish antics. So, here’s to St George and in honour of St George’s Day, and because I am feeling patriotic, I am making English food today: from roast chicken and Yorkshire pudding to a nice jam pudding.
Have a great weekend!
