AGA Absolutely Fabulous

Based on the hit BBC sitcom from the 90’s, the recently released Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie brings back the ever-glamorous and self-indulgent Edina and Patsy. Along with the return of the cast, production designer Harry Banks has reintroduced the AGA Range, which made several appearances on the show. This time, Banks took advantage of the new integrated solutions to mix and match. “We actually got three Agas and put them together,” he says. “They’d brought out a range in pastel colors of a smaller cooker, but by using three of them it gave us a vast cooker in some really cool colors.”Customize Your Aga

Customizing an AGA cooking space has never been easier. With the integrated solutions of adding induction, gas top burners or a warming plate hotcupboard to any 3-oven AGA cast iron range, the possibilities are endless.

Caliber Rotisserie Chicken Recipe

Recipe from: Caliber Culinary Corner: Rotisserie Chicken on the Caliber Pro Kamado
Published by Caliber, July 15, 2016

Wash and brine your chicken with your favorite dry brine and place on the rotisserie rod. Truss the chicken once it’s on the rod and use pliers to tighten the fork screws. Prepare the Caliber Pro Kamado Smoker by filling the blaze basket accessory 3/4 full of lump charcoal and a handful of apple chips at the top. Put a drip pan at the bottom of your grill to catch the juices for use as a baste after the chicken is cooked. Wear heat protective gloves when inserting the rotisserie rod and chicken. Let the rotisserie run for about an 75 to 90 minutes while basting with olive oil periodically. To check the doneness, turn rotisserie motor off and insert the thermometer into the thickest part of breast with temperature reaching 165 (+/- 5 degrees). Rotisserie chicken on the Caliber Crossflame Silver or Pro gas grill should be cooked on HI initially, and then MED once skin darkens. Cook time and doneness is similar to cooking on the Kamado. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • One 8 lb. chicken or two 4.5 lb. chickens
  • Olive oil
  • Your favorite meat dry rub or just salt and pepper

AGA Homemade Bread Recipe

Recipe from: AGA Blog: Baking Bread In The AGA Cast Iron Range
Published by AGA, June 13, 2016

AGA Baked Bread

When baking or cooking with the AGA cast iron range, the radiant heat of the cast iron helps lock in moisture and flavor.  Few would argue that fresh-baked homemade bread is far tastier than store-bought loaves. Even a plain loaf is delicious, and your creative customizations will take it over the top. Add your favorite healthy grains and seeds, use a mixture of flours or add dried fruit and spices to create a low-sugar breakfast loaf. Want to add a bit of protein – and flavor?  Add 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese.  (Everything tastes better with cheese…)  Homemade crackers, rolls, and tortillas are easy variations on loaves that will complement a wide array of dishes and cuisines. colors_duck_egg_blue_470x460

  • 8 ½ cups bread flour, divided
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/3 cup sugar
