What Bernstein, D-Rod, Reidt, and Other Chefs Want For Christmas
The Gastrovac. David, take note.
There are thousands of comestibles and cooking gadgets on the market, but you would think most chefs have just about every conceivable piece of equipment they might possibly want -- and we know they have access to all sorts of foods. But it turns out that there are vacancies on every chef's wish list. Some are exotic (The Smoking Gun by Polyscience); most are pretty simple (Braun Cordless Hand Blender).
The question I posed to seven esteemed local chefs is this: What food or kitchen related gift would you most like to receive for Christmas?
Salt doesn't seem too extravagant a gift to ask for.
E. Michael Reidt, Area 31
Braun Cordless Hand Blender.
Giorgio Rapicavoli, 660 at The Angler's
This Christmas I'm asking for The Smoking Gun by Polyscience...It's a hand-held smoker that lets you smoke foods after they've been cooked...the possibilities are endless: butter, cheese, fruits, raw meats, fish, maybe even ice creams.
I would love to get the new collection of La Chamba Potware for Christmas! I love the full line of black clay pots -- they're made exclusively in Colombia and I need to replace a few.
