11a – 3pm
In our resolutions to be healthy in the new year, we try to cook more at home, and focus on using fewer fats while cooking. The challenge is finding cookware that holds up to little to no oil when cooking – especially when making eggs. Enter Swiss Diamond Cookware.
Swiss Diamond cookware uses a revolutionary nonstick coating made with diamonds. The coating of each Swiss Diamond pan contains up to 200,000 real diamond crystals for a long-lasting non stick surface. We like to consider diamonds a chef’s best friend. Why?
- Diamonds are durable – As the hardest material known to man, diamonds lend the coating additional strength and longevity.
- Diamonds are a better heat conductor than metal – Four times more conductive than copper, diamonds help distribute heat evenly across the surface of the pan. Diamonds also allow the pan to brown food like stainless steel, creating a “fond” that can be used for gravy – or easily washed away with warm soapy water.
- Diamonds are naturally nonstick – One of the most valuable properties of diamonds is that they have intrinsic nonstick properties, unlike titanium reinforcement. This gives the coating outstanding nonstick release properties.
Brian will be making a healthy and delicious Southwestern Breakfast scramble, and showing off how easy healthy cooking can be.
11a – 3pm
Microwave popcorn is a convenience, but why be limited to the pre-packaged flavors? With the Chef’n Pop Top Microwave Popcorn Popper you can make healthier, homemade popcorn for you and your family in the same amount of time!
This silicone gadget can be used to make up to 10 cups of popcorn at a time. To make the full 10 cups, simply fill the base with popcorn kernels and add butter or oil on top, if desired. Fold the triangles down and “pop” it into the microwave for 2 minutes. After popping, use the tabs at the top of the lip to safely carry it. Top it with salt or get creative and try something new! We love using the Saint Lucifer spice blend (if you like some kick!) or the Black Crack with a touch of salt added. The whole device drops into the dishwasher for easy clean up.
This Saturday, Barb will be making popcorn topped with Saint Lucifer Spice Habanero Blend 11. Come and join us for this delicious and easy to make treat and checkout how easy it is to make homemade popcorn to spice up your next movie night!
