As usual my story begins on a Sunday, not just any typical Sunday, but a birthday Sunday. The sun was beaming down, casting gorgeous shadows beneath the old Tuart tree, the smell of a roast pork permeating the air, the crisp crack of yet another beer water being opened. Yes, these are my favorite Sundays. (more…)
Fresh seasonal produce straight from the paddock to the plate is what Chef Matt Moran is all about. With 8 restaurants already under his belt, a 9th on the way, an assortment of cookbooks and his very own show on the Lifestyle Channel, you could say Matt knows a thing or two about food. Matt recently visited Kitchen Warehouse Osborne Park to hold a Masterclass with Global Ni Knives and Scanpan IQ Cookware for 40 very enthusiastic customers eager to learn from a man with over 30 years experience in the food industry.

Smooth, full bodied, spicy, fruity, dry, savoury and sweet are just some of the terms we hear when attending a wine tasting, but what if I told you the glass you’re drinking from can impact all of these? What if I told you that plastic cup you’re drinking from makes your wine taste “inoffensive”? What if I told you, that Shiraz glass that you’re drinking your Pinot Noir from makes it taste dry?

French Champagne, an elegantly rustic cheese table, lively music and a group of excited VIP members. These were the key ingredients to kicking off Manu’s visit to Kitchen Warehouse. These select few Kitchen Warehouse VIP members were invited along to spend an evening sipping Champagne, eating cheese, taking selfies, getting books signed, having a chat and many laughs with one of Australia’s most popular celebrity chefs. How did they get invited you ask? Simple, all they needed to do was be a VIP or join the VIP club and purchase any piece of Chasseur Cast Iron cookware and they were invited. How easy is that? Chasseur Cast Iron is something everyone needs to have at least one of in their home. (more…)
Grate, chop, slice, press, blend, french fry, whisk and knead, these are just some of the things the Magimix Patissier can do. As exciting as it is reading about what any machine can do, it’s always best to see it in action, and who better than Mr Bad Chef himself, Adrian Richardson. Adrian spent a very entertaining evening at our Osborne Park store wowing guests and showing off features of the Magimix and the Barmix. From a super simple pasta to an Asian inspired slaw, strawberry sponge cakes and Tequila sunrises, Adrian showed how best to use the Magimix Patissier and the Barmix to serve your family a delicious meal (or super tasty cocktail) in half the time.

Let me tell you about the time I got to fly over to Sydney to meet one of my heroes. You see, I’ve been a massive Jamie Oliver fan since before the dawn of time. Jamie’s approach to flavour packed simple food and having a little fun in the kitchen is what appeals the most. His recipes are achievable and won’t take you two days to prepare and perhaps most importantly there’s no obscure ingredients that can only be found in the eastern mountains of Tibet. Jamie inspires the good kind of cooking, there’s no yelling, no pans flying across the kitchen, it’s all just a bit of fun.
