  1. Cookware – The Perfect Wedding Gift

    Leave a Comment

    Finding the right gift to help make the happy couple’s day that extra bit special can be something of a minefield. This is particularly true for those who haven’t registered a gift list where you can simply pick something off that suits your budget. With web based services such as Prezola, it is now possible to make contributions to high value items, honeymoons or just send gifts of cash.

    If you haven’t been blessed with an approved list that guarantees sheer delight regardless of what choice you make, things can be trickier. You want to get them something they’ll love, something they can keep for a long time and perhaps something that they will actually use. That said, you have four other weddings this year alone so you can’t spend a fortune. Where to start?

    This is where cookware (and ProWare) comes in. Firstly, it doesn’t matter if you are a Michelin starred chef or ready meal aficionado, everyone likes a nice pan. Whether it is being used on a daily basis to create a plethora of culinary masterpieces or it is nothing more than an ornament hanging from a hook, beautiful cookware really does complete a kitchen.

    Fortunately for those with friends and family with very specific taste, there is such a vast array of cookware on the market that you will definitely be able to find something they like. As tempting as it may be to go for style over substance, resist; especially when buying for keen cooks (they will thank you for it). If you buy well, good cookware can last a lifetime. So not only will your gift see them though decades of family meals but it will also serve as a reminder of their special day for years to come.

  2. 7 Ways to Use Our Minis

    Leave a Comment

    When we have done food events in the past, it has often been our mini pans that attract people to our stand. After the initial ‘ooohs’, ‘aahs’ and declarations of cuteness, people nearly always ask ‘but what would I use them for?’

    Well you’d be surprised just how useful they can be. Here’s a few things we like to do with them.

    1 Pot Pies

    ProWares Cast Iron Mini Casseroles 2

    Serving in a Cast Iron 10cm Mini Casserole is a great way to make individual pot pies that are not only sure to impress at a dinner party but provide a more generous portion than you might think.

    2 Toasting Nuts and Spices

    Proware Balsamic Pear Salad

    This helps release the aromatic compounds in nuts and spices, intensifying their flavour which can really improve things like curries and salads. We recommend using a Copper Tri-Ply 12cm Mini Frying Pan thanks to its compact size.

    3 Butter, Brandy and Basting

    In a professional kitchen the Copper Tri-Ply 9cm Mini Pan would likely be referred to as a butter pan and would be used extensively in the making of sauces and sweets. This functionality carries through to home kitchens too! Warming brandy for the Christmas pud, basting meats when barbecuing or infusing oils for bread, pasta and salads.

    4 Serving Dips and Sauces

    ProWare Dips

    Our Mini Casseroles are a great size for the table. The thermal retention of cast iron also means it can keep its contents warm (or cold, just pop in the freeze for 20 mins before serving) for a long time. Find some great dip recipes here.

    5 Frying an Egg

    Breakfast for one? A Copper Tri-Ply 12cm Mini Frying Pan is the perfect diameter for a single fried egg.

    6 Cooking for Kids

    If you’re warming baby food or cooking a small portion of veg, the Copper Tri-Ply 9cm Mini Pan comes in very handy.

    7 Serving Veg

    Whether you’re planning a romantic meal for two or a dinner party for ten, our copper and cast iron minis make for beautiful tableware to make your food feel that bit more special.

     

     

    Tip: Small pans can be unstable on some hobs. If this is the case with yours we would recommend a hob reducer to ensure your pan is properly supported.
