Charred Jalapeño Hummus with Za’atar Roasted Chicken and Pita

Chef Dan’s Charred Jalapeño Hummus with Za’atar Roasted Chicken and Pita

Making hummus at home is a lot easier than you might think. It just takes a few simple ingredients. Once you see how effortless it is to make using the Wolf Gourmet blender, you’ll never go back to store bought hummus again. There are a few different ways you can add the charred jalapeños.

A Taste of Spring Atop Your Toast | Wolf Gourmet

A Taste of Spring Atop Your Toast

Spring is all about delicate greens and pinks returning to the market – soft herbs and lettuces, rhubarb, strawberries, radishes all fall into this color story and all make wonderful toppings for thick slices of perfectly toasted bread- which just happens to be one of my favorite food groups.

Confidence In Every Step: Hollandaise Sauce

Using the Wolf Gourmet blender turns sauce making into fast and easy work. The emulsion cup works well with dressings and helps you drizzle melted butter into notoriously finicky sauces like the classic Hollandaise at the exact right rate.

Emulsions can be tricky endeavors, with just the right ratio needed to achieve perfection. Too much heat or adding the butter… Read more
