  • How to restore your old cooking pans

    You’ve had a good time together over the years, shared some delicious meals and some heart-warming moments, but now your pans are a former shell of what they used to be.

    Perhaps they are refusing to heat, or covered in dark sticky goo, or simply making everything they touch taste of coal – but can they be rescued?

     

    Tried vinegar?

    Before your send your frying pans and cooking pots to the bin, make sure you’ve given them a good scrub with vinegar. This will work across all pan types including stainless steel, aluminium, non-stick and cast iron and should help remove nasty stains and burnt bits.

    However, if your cookware is non-stick and the coating has started to strip away, there’s very little you can do to fix it once you’ve exhausted your vinegar cleaning options.

     

    Are your pans peeling?

    In this case you should absolutely be looking at purchasing some new cookware. Not only can parts of the peeling pan get into your food, affecting its taste, texture and appearance, it can also be incredibly unsafe. No amount of vinegar can fix this!

  • Easy Recipes to Impress With a Nova Multi Quirl  

     

    Known by many as the Miracle Whisk, the Nova Multi Quirl is the must-have kitchen accessory that’s been taking foodies all over the world by storm. But how to make the most of it?

     

    Meringues to Die For Nova Quirl Caravan Boat

    The difference between shop bought and homemade meringues is huge, and with the Nova Multi Quirl it’s no longer a faff to whip up your own, even in a caravan or boat kitchen!

    Method: With your Nova Multi Quirl whip up four large egg whites until they start to form peaks. Then slowly add 115g of caster sugar (a little at a time!) while still whipping, and then when the mixture looks glossy put down your Nova Multi Quirl and slowly fold in 115g of icing sugar. Dollop onto baking-paper lined trays and cook at 100 Celsius for 1hr 15 minutes (conventional or gas oven) or 1hr 30 – 1hr 45 if you have a fan oven.

    Top Tip: Use your Nova Multi Quirl to whip up some whipping cream, chop up some freshly picked strawberries and mix together with your crumbled meringues. Ta da! You know have a delicious desert of Eton Mess ready to go!

     

    The Mayonnaise to Beat all Mayonnaises

    Nothing makes a summer barbeque like the addition of some freshly prepared mayonnaise, and with the Nova Multi Quirl this is as simple as opening a jar – and way more delicious!

    Method: Using your Nova Multi Quirl whisk one egg yolk, a couple of pinches of salt and the same amount of sugar in a glass bowl. In a cup mix together 2 teaspoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice and a table spoon of white wine vinegar and add half to the whisked egg yolk, whisking thoroughly as you do so. Add a cup of oil to the mixture, one drop at a time, until the mixture emulsifies, and slowly add the rest of the oil and lemon mixture. Make sure you keep whisking using your Nova Multi Quirl while you add all the ingredients and then leave for an hour or so, and serve!

    Top Tip: Add a splash of Dijon mustard or mustard powder to give the mayonnaise kick if serving with meat products.

    The Perfect Café Latte

    Nothing beats a waking up in your boat or motorhome to a beautiful café latte, and with the Nova Multi Quirl this is no longer a treat that requires a trek to the nearest coffee shop.

    Method: Simply heat your milk in the microwave then use your Nova Multi Quirl to get it all light and frothy. Pour the milk mixture in your cup then pour your freshly brewed coffee through it and sprinkle with chocolate, cinnamon or vanilla.

    Top Tip: For an after dinner treat; add a generous slug of liquor like Baileys or Whiskey.
