Industrial Warehouse To Beautiful Home

Blog post: Guest Post: White Shanty Design’s Industrial Warehouse Home
Published by EuroChef, October 23, 2017

Hi there! We’re Seth and Jenna, the husband + wife team behind @Whiteshantydesign. Two years ago we bought a barn style industrial warehouse that we run our businesses out of. In the front of the warehouse we do weddings and events, and in the back we manufacture all kinds of industrial handmade furniture that we ship all over the world. About nine months ago we decided to turn the 3,000 square foot attic portion of the warehouse into our home.

 

We did everything from the wood floors and finish work, to the furniture and electrical ourselves. We had a very specific look that we wanted and knew the kitchen would be one of the most important rooms in the home. After all, it is where we gather the most for our meals and memories.

We went with a European industrial style design throughout our home, and the Verona 36” Dual Fuel Double Oven Range helped us complete the look. Verona offers a variety of colors to choose from, but the True White was exactly what we had been searching for! Not only is it stunning aesthetically, but the functionality is beyond what I could have hoped for!

I have never had a gas range before, and can I just tell you what a difference it makes?! I love the open flame, and continual grates make it easy to have multiple dishes cooking simultaneously. We’re all about providing wholesome meals for our family, and with five different burners there is plenty of room to cook everything at once. The burners on the cooktop sit closer to the grates than traditional ranges which helps our dishes cook and get to the table more quickly.

I love having the double oven to have dinner going in one side, and dessert in the other. I have plenty of mouths to feed, so the spacious convection ovens are a huge plus for me. When I found out that the larger oven can cook a turkey up to 25lbs., I was sold. I’m especially looking forward to trying out all seven of the cooking modes in both convection ovens.

I cannot say enough good things about my Verona, and if I had to do it all over, I’d choose them again and again. It really was the missing piece to finishing off this space in our new home, and I look forward to baking cookies and making meals for years to come with my five little ones gathered around me in our kitchen. Thank you, Verona, for making it happen!

Color Is The New Stainless

Article: Bringing Color into the Modern Kitchen By Wendy Helfenbaum
Published By Metropolis Magazine, September 18, 2017

No longer a modernist faux pas, color and decoration are adding sophisticated style to today’s kitchens. After decades of clinging to monochrome and stainless steel as the standard finishes in contemporary kitchens, it’s time for a bold injection of color. And with the kitchen increasingly an opportunity for showcase and entertaining, the once humble and utilitarian range is stepping into the spotlight with an expanded palette of finishes and a chef’s dream set of features.

Since launching its premium residential and commercial ovens and cooktops in 1952, the Italian manufacturer ILVE has become synonymous with timeless beauty, exceptional functionality, and technical innovation. Handcrafted with precision near Venice, each range represents a culinary objet d’art, ideal for those who are as passionate about design as they are about cooking.

New options including color, finishes, and modern details allow ILVE’s classic motifs to integrate seamlessly into today’s “transitional” kitchen. Designers can now specify every element—from color to cooking method—to create the perfect focal point around which host and guests will be delighted to congregate. Available in either eight standard colors or in more than 200 custom RAL—including Cadium Yellow, Traffic Purple and Cobalt Blue—the Majestic, Nostalgie and Techno collections of ranges are sure to fit into any design scheme.

The Majestic line—available in both dual fuel and all-gas—comes in five sizes from 30”-60”, equipped with single or double ovens. With trim options including brass, copper, oil-rubbed bronze, or chrome and four different leg styles, customization lets these kitchen centerpieces be unique and refined.

Incorporating the same technical features as the Majestic, the Techno Collection also offers modern extras like a tubular style handle, sleek stainless steel knobs, tubular legs, trim-less doors and panels, and an optional upper handrail.

When working with smaller spaces, ILVE’s compact Nostalgie ranges are 24” deep, and available in widths starting at 24”. Featuring a powerful all-gas configuration, the ranges include an upper handrail, digital clock and timer, pre-heat indicator, hearth-shaped window, tubular legs and a storage/warming drawer.

For each product line, a wealth of accessories – including cast iron steak pans, chopping boards, griddle covers, pizza stones and basins for steam cooking – further enable each range to meet any personal taste and cooking style.

ILVE’s latest custom options allow for personalization, making each kitchen unique, whether the design calls for a muted range to blend in with a monochromatic scheme or a spotlight-worthy shade to create a vibrant focal point.

In staying true to its heritage while embracing new design options and technological innovations, ILVE has contemporary solutions for every dream kitchen.

Smoked Turkey, Brisket, And Squash – Oh My!

Blog Post: Caliber Smoked Turkey

Published by Caliber Appliances, September 25, 2017

Who says the holidays are meant to be enjoyed indoors? These mouth watering recipes from Caliber Appliances will make any barbecue enthusiast feel like a seasoned gourmet chief.

Caliber Smoked TurkeyRecipe
Wash and brine your turkey with your favorite dry brine. Inject turkey under the skin with one cup of apple juice. Stuff turkey with your favorite stuffing and cover exposed stuffing with foil before cooking.

Prepare the Caliber Pro Kamado Smoker by filling the blaze basket accessory with lump charcoal. The basket should sit on the charcoal plate at the rear of the smoker with the hinged part of the grate above it so you can access it. Bring the temperature of the smoker up to 300ºF and once the temp has settled, place your turkey centered directly on the grate, breast facing up and allow 1” of space between turkey and smoker lid. Now add a small handful of apple and pecan smoking chips to the blaze basket and close the lid. The smoker will “smoke” for the first 30-60 minutes of the 3-4 hour cooking process (20-30 min. per pound) and after this time, there should be “clean” heat exiting the top vent. Too much time with “smoke” may impart a bitter taste into your turkey. Continue to cook the turkey, checking on it every hour or so with the heat not exceeding 325ºF or falling below 250º F.   If the skin darkens too quickly, then tent foil the turkey to avoid burning the skin. Enjoy the amazing juicy smoky flavor you get from the Caliber Pro Kamado.

Ingredients for Smoked Turkey
15-20 Lb. Turkey
1 Cup apple juice
Your favorite dry brine and stuffing

Caliber Smoked Brisket Recipe
Prepare the Caliber Pro Kamado Smoker by lling the indirect blaze basket accessory with lump charcoal. The basket should sit on the charcoal plate at the rear of the smoker with the hinged part of the grate above it so you can access it. Bring the temperature of the smoker up to 230-275oF. Trim the fat from the brisket. Put a light coating of salt and pepper or your favorite meat dry rub on your brisket and place it on the top grate once the temperature has settled. Now add a small handful of apple and pecan smoking chips to the blaze basket and close the lid. The smoker will “smoke” for the rst 30-60 minutes of the 9-10 hour cooking process. After this time, there should be “clean” heat exiting the top vent. Too much time with smoke may impart a bitter taste. Continue to cook the brisket, checking them every hour or so with the heat not exceeding 250-275oF until the brisket reaches an internal temperature of 200oF. You will be amazed by how juicy this brisket is without having to inject broth into it or refuel your coals during the process.

Ingredients for Smoked Brisket
12-15 pound brisket with fat trimmed to 1/4” Your favorite meat dry rub, or just salt and pepper

Caliber Smoked Spaghetti Squash
Cut your spaghetti squash in half and scoop out the seeds. This is easy if you microwave the squash for 1-2 minutes to soften the skin. Drizzle olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder over the top of both halves. Fill a metal broil pan with about 1/4 inch full of water. Place your squash upside down on the pan. Heat your smoker to about 350º F (approximately 20-25 minutes) using mesquite lump charcoal within the center of the bottom charcoal plate. It is recommended that you do not use wood chips because they tend to impart a bitter taste to vegetables. Close the lid to cook for about 45 minutes or until the water starts to evaporate and your squash turns golden brown. You can cook the squash using a similar process on a gas grill or in the oven; however it will lack the smoky favor and tenderness you get from this process. Scoop the squash out of the shells and serve as a delicious and healthy side dish.

Ingredients for Smoked Spaghetti Squash
Spaghetti squash (halved)
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
Garlic powder
Mesquite lump charcoal
