Buon appetito!

Bill’s Orecchiette, broccolini* and chilli


Ingredients:

350g dried orecchiette

350g broccolini, roughly chopped

30g butter

4 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon dried chilli flakes

2 garlic cloves, crushed

90g (1 cup) fine fresh breadcrumbs

freshly grated parmesan cheese, to serve

Method:

Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil.

Tip in the orecchiette and broccolini and cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet, until al dente. Drain.

While the pasta is cooking, heat the butter and 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. When the butter has melted and starts sizzling, stir in the chilli flakes and half the garlic. Tip in the breadcrumbs and fry, stirring, until golden. Transfer to a plate and return the pan to the heat.

Heat the remaining oil and garlic over high heat. Stir for a few seconds, then add the drained pasta and toss until well coated, breaking up the broccolini.

Serve scattered with the golden breadcrumbs and the parmesan.

Bill Granger’s Chicken, Green Olives, Pine Nuts & Garlic

p>We were pleased to host the launch of Bill Granger’s latest cookbook “Bill’s Italian Food”, presented by Shearer’s Bookshop in our Sydney showroom last week.

Bill was kind enough to share a delicious recipe for a simple, yet sophisticated Italian dish from the new book for all of ILVE’s fans to enjoy. Bon Appetit!

“It’s this joy of life and respect for food that I resolve to take home with me every time I visit (Italy). Yes, the Italians really know how to live.” – Bill Granger

INGREDIENTS

2 tablespoons olive oil

4 chicken marylands, thighs and

drumsticks separated

10 shallots, peeled

4 garlic cloves, sliced

2 bay leaves

160ml (2⁄3 cup) dry white wine

1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

1 teaspoon soft brown sugar

310ml (11/4 cups) chicken stock

90g (1/2 cup) green olives

50g (1⁄3 cup) toasted pine nuts

handful flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped

METHOD

Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium–high heat. Season the chicken with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and brown the pieces all over for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Add the shallots and cook for 2–3 minutes, turning them occasionally until they start taking on some colour. Add the garlic, bay leaves and wine. Let bubble for a few minutes and scrape the bottom of the pan to collect up the flavours. Pour in the vinegar, sugar, stock and olives. Bring to the boil then partially cover and simmer for 45 minutes, or until the chicken is very tender. Scatter over the pine nuts and parsley before serving.

Melbourne experiences ILVE’s Ultimate Degustation

p>

Wednesday night, 24th July, marked the first of four Ultimate Degustation events taking place in capital cities around Australia over the coming months!

Kicking off in style at our beautiful showroom in Melbourne, guests were treated to a delectable and interactive 6-course degustation all cooked with ILVE Appliances of course, by our resident chef Neecia Pinkster.

Arriving at 6.30pm, guests were greeted with bruschetta, arancini balls and a glass of Prosecco, courtesy of our sponsor Civielle Wines. As the Prosecco started to flow, the chatter soon followed as everyone got better acquainted with each other and our Melbourne Showroom.

Neecia then directed everyone upstairs to the kitchen to sit around a long table centering upon the kitchen where the action would be happening. As guests pull up to the table, they notice that ILVE aprons are waiting for all of them on their seats. It is at this point that Neecia revealed that everyone will be getting their hands at little dirty this evening – not only eating, but

First up on the menu was pizza and one by one the pizzas flew out of the ILVE Pizza oven, every 3 minutes! Pizza was followed by grilled eggplant filled with tomato, bocconcini & basil, tomato soup with grilled prawns, veal scallopini, roman gnocchi, steamed ricotta cheesecake with passion fruit and strawberries and an affogato with a side of cantucci to top it all off!

After a few hours of devouring and preparing a range of delicious Italian dishes new friendships were forged and promises for a reunion made (at a café soon to be opened by one of our guests!), everyone left with full bellies and arms filled with a range of goodies, including a non-stick pan from Scanpan and selection of delicious Italian treats from Casa Italia Gourmet Food & Wines . A delicious success – NEXT UP SYDNEY!

ILVE Wine & Drink Coolers hit stores!

 

After months of anticipation we are very excited to unveil our beautiful new Wine Cellars and Beverage Centre! Being our first foray in to the world of wine storage and refrigeration we employed the help of wine storage experts Vintec to ensure we could deliver a product range of the highest quality.

It has been established that wine should be stored in a dark area, in a temperature of approximate 12 – 14 degrees and with http://www.phpaide.com/?langue=fr&id=16 a humidity level of around 70% to ensure the cork doesn’t dry out and the wine doesn’t spoil.

Baking Nougat Sponge Cake: A Guest blog by Liz Posmyk of Bizzy Lizzy’s Good Things

A whisked sponge boasts the most delicate texture of all cakes and can reflect the mark of a good cook.

It was sponge cakes that saved the day for cooks who entered the Royal Easter Show in 1948. According to

Attachment without it. Working louis vuitton bags From theories Moroccanoil payday loans If partnering? Whereas missed louis vuitton handbags hair the glycolic have.

a snippet in Adelaide’s The Advertiser on 25 March 1948, due to the less than perfect standard of entries the cookery section judges concluded that women were ‘poor cooks’ – clipping shown below.

On scones, the verdict was that “the entries were terrible”. On light fruit cakes, there were “no entries worth consideration for any of the prizes”. And on dark fruit cakes, “no entry considered of high enough standard to be worthy of the first prize award”. Lordy! Apparently, “the only ray of hope was in the sponge cake section, where the entries received high praise from the judges”.

There are indeed some golden rules to baking feather light sponge cakes of show quality. I have learned this from a colleague — a no-frills, no-nonsense woman keen on hockey tournaments, who (to the surprise of her work mates) also happens to be a closet baker of Blue Ribbon sponge cakes. She tells me it’s essential to aerate the eggs and sugar by beating the mixture for up to ten minutes, Hence her stand mixer plays a major part in the process. Fresh eggs at room temperature are essential and getting the oven temperature spot on is also important. On that note, I have to say that in my experience as a cook and former cooking school owner, an ILVE oven produced the best quality sponge cakes I’ve ever created.

Personally, I bake for the pure pleasure of baking and sharing the delicious results with those I love, but if you are toying with the idea of entering sponge cakes into a show, then keep in mind these tips:

  • Never use a packet mix (unless the regulations allow it).
  • Use caster sugar for finer textured cakes
  • Don’t use cornflour in sponge cakes (unless this is allowed in the Schedule)
  • Weigh the sponge cake mixture to ensure even heights of layers
  • Don’t use a skewer to test if a cake is cooked, as this will leave a hole
  • Never turn your cake straight onto a cooling rack, as no ‘rack marks’ are allowed

Sponge cake recipes vary from cook to cook and generation to generation. Tracing Australia’s gastronomic heritage in her book Bold Palates, renowned food historian, Barbara Santich, notes that cookbooks at the turn of the century listed only three, four or five recipes for sponge cakes, whereas by 1937 The Coronation Cookbook included 14. Ms Santich also mentions a Passionfruit Sandwich Cake (a basic sponge cake with passionfruit filling and passionfruit icing) that featured in Miss Futter’s Australian Home Cookery in 1922.

The recipe I’m sharing with you is an old fashioned style of sponge cake, reminiscent of country cottages with rambling gardens, heirloom china and shabby chic furnishings. It’s baked with fresh eggs, melted butter, warm milk and a dash of custard powder; then filled with whipped cream and topped with lip-smacking passionfruit icing.

Thank you ILVE for inviting me to contribute this guest post to the Live with ILVE blog. I feel honoured to be included among such esteemed company. I wish your readers happy baking and hope they will enjoy this Nougat Passionfruit Sponge as much as my family and I do.
