• Entertain with Ease Using New Cooking Technologies from GE

    April 12, 2010

    The final session of the day was called “Entertain with Ease Using New Cooking Technologies from GE.” The group learned about induction cooking and watched a couple of cooking demonstration using this new technology, which works via a magnetic field to provide fast, efficient cooking.

    Fun facts:

    • The GE induction technology has the ability to boil water in just 100 seconds!
    • There are no open flames and the surface remains cool to the touch.
    • The GE induction range is the official cooktop of the Pillsbury Bake-Off® finalists.

    Upon entering the session, we received a glass of champagne with fresh raspberries. (I’ve drinking quite a lot of champagne lately!)

    During the session, we watch the induction technology in action as two top chefs demonstrated delicious recipes for springtime entertaining.

    And we got to taste their recipes! :-D

    The lamb was so flavorful and moist. For some reason, sliders always seem to taste better than regular burgers to me.

    Both the Surf and Turf and Potato Au Gratin recipes are from the Bull and Bear Steakhouse at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando.

    At this point in the day, I was pretty stuffed from eating all day long, but then dessert changed my mind: Butterscotch Pudding! Heaven!!!

    I don’t typically like bourbon, but I practically licked the glass clean.

    Butterscotch pudding is heavenly. Mmm. The thing I hate about stoves like that (flat top, no flame) is they’re a monster to clean. Spill even a little pasta water and you have a major burn stain that’s hard to get up. My new apartment has one and it was great for all of two days. Even cleaning it well right after using doesn’t do much good.

    Induction cooking is such a cool concept, but I’ve never seen it in person. It’s so crazy to think you can boil water in less than 2 minutes!

    I’ve heard some mixed reviews about induction cooking. It’s definitely something that cooks need to get used to.

    I’m not sure I’d be ready for that.
