Roasted Tomato Bruschetta | Wolf Gourmet

Roasted Tomato Bruschetta from The Chef Dan

Plain old bruschetta is always going to be a safe bet for a crowd-pleasing appetizer, but when you want to kick things up a notch, give this roasted tomato bruschetta a go. Slow roasting cherry tomatoes brings out the best in them and highlights their naturally sweet flavor. Roasted tomatoes don’t need much to make them shine: a little olive oil, some salt, and thyme is all you need. It’s a classic combination and this is one of those situations where simplicity is key. I like to roast the tomatoes in a skillet and the Wolf Gourmet 8.5” skillet is… Read more

Fried Halloumi & Peach Salad

Fried Halloumi & Peach Salad from Lena’s Kitchen

This pan-fried halloumi & peach salad on a bed of arugula is the summer salad I can’t get enough of. Topped with homemade basil oil for the most vibrant of flavors, I have no doubt you will love this salad. I’ve been working on some fun and easy summer dinner recipes, so when I had the chance to work with Wolf Gourmet products, specifically their 8.5” inch skillet and high-performance blender, I decided to create a delicious warm-weather salad. The 8.5” skillet is one of the most versatile pans in the kitchen, perfectly sized for preparation of smaller meals, side dishes and omelets…. Read more

Green Garlic Risotto with Spring Vegetables by Brooke Bass | Wolf Gourmet

Green Garlic Risotto with Spring Vegetables

Several years ago, I took cooking classes at an agriturismo in southern Italy. On the last day of our classes, my instructor Maria pointed to a recipe for risotto, indicating this would be included in our menu for the day. We worked in the kitchen that afternoon on the mis en place, but the risotto, she said to the translator who was in the kitchen with us, would need to be prepared just before guests were scheduled to eat. At 8pm, just as everyone was beginning to gather in the dining room, she waved me over from the kitchen, eager… Read more

Sarah's Sunday Meatballs | Wolf Gourmet

Sarah’s Sunday Meatballs

I was a happy vegetarian for 7 years. I ate lots of tofu and legumes. Salads were my best friend. Lentils were life. But about halfway through college, something changed. I began to crave burgers. Which was weird, because in my previous meat-eating days I had never been a burger person. But that melty cheese, that fat brioche bun, and of course, that hamburger patty called out to me. This craving went on for a good part of a year, and I tried to resist it. Until one day when I was at a bar with my girlfriend and she ordered an 8 ounce angus… Read more

Miso Poached Salmon + Mussels | betty liu

Miso Poached Salmon from Betty Liu

Imagine a salmon that flakes and falls apart at the slightest touch, floating in an umami-powered broth, with that flavor permeating throughout. This dish is simple and takes less than 30 minutes to make. It’s the perfect weeknight meal, made even easier when you have dashi stock in the fridge, ready for use. Dashi stock is a fundamental Japanese base for many dishes, including the ubiquitous miso soup. It’s made primarily from kombu (dried kelp) and bonito flakes (thin flakes of smoked fish), and oftentimes will have anchovies or mushroom as well. I’ve provided a simple recipe for the most… Read more

Cardamom Stewed Apples in Vanilla Port | Wolf Gourmet

Cardamom Stewed Apples in Vanilla Port from Nik Sharma

I’m all about decadence when it comes to desserts – and if there’s a way to make a fancy sweet with a minimum of effort, I’m even more excited. Besides being easy, this stewed and stuffed apple dessert has a lot going for it. For one, the apples are sweet enough so you don’t need to add extra sugar; the apples are infused with cardamom and the wine with a vanilla bean. You could use any of the sweeter apples that are suitable for baking because they’ll hold their texture well when stewed. My personal favorite is Golden Delicious because… Read more

Pasta e Fagioli is the ultimate comfort food. Commonly known as pasta ‘fazool,’ this tomato and vegetable based soup originates from Italy. Recipes will vary according to region, but the main ingredients are primarily the same: beans and short cut macaroni.
