  • Bobby Flay's Shellfish Gumbo

    On cold winter nights, sometimes the best comfort food at the end of a long day is a bowl of piping hot gumbo or stew, don't you think? We are loving Bobby Flay's rendition on the classic Shellfish Gumbo and we hope you'll like it too. The recipe and instructions may look long and daunting but the process is actually very straight forward and systematic, with most of the work coming through in the preparation stage (e.g. chopping, dicing, measuring...) The savory flavors of the crabmeat, the oysters and the shrimp come out in a delicious & aromatic way thanks to delicious Homemade Shrimp Stock and wonderful vegetables, herbs, and seasonings that will warm the soul and fill you up. Try this out for yourself or your family on the next cold winter's night.

    Recipe serves 6-8 8 tablespoons ( 1 stick) unsalted butter 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 2 celery stalks, finely diced 2 carrots, finely diced 1 large Spanish onion, finely diced 1 red bell pepper, finely diced 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped 4 cups Shrimp Stock (recipe listed below), or mroe if needed, hot 2 tablespoons honey Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 4 tablespoons canola oil, plus more for deep-frying the okra 1.5 cups yellow cornmeal 8 ounces okra, cut into 1/4''-thick rounds 1 pound large (21-24 count) shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails left on 18 shucked oysters 6 ounces jumbo lump crabmeat 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves 3 green onions (green and pale green parts), thinly sliced Shrimp Stock Recipe 2 tablespoons canola oil 4 cups raw shrimp shells and tails 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped 1 small carrot, coarsely chopped 1/2 medium celery stock, coarsely chopped 1 cup dry white wine 1 medium sized tomato, chopped, or 1/2 cup chopped canned plum tomatoes 1 bay leaf 8 black peppercorns (or to taste) HOW TO MAKE THE STOCK: Heat the oil in a large saucepan over high heat until almost smoking. Add the shrimp shells and tails, the onion, carrot, and celery, and saute, stirring, for 5 minutes. Add the wine and boil until reduced by 1/2. Add 8 cups cold water, the tomato, bay leaf, and the peppercorns. Reduce the heat to medium, cover partially, and simmer for approximately 40 minutes. Strain the stock through a cheesecloth or a fine mesh strainer into a bowl to keep the consistency just right. ALL THE REST: 1. Melt the butter in a large Dutch oven over medium heat, gradually mixing in the flour until smooth. Cook the roux, stirring occasionally, until a light caramel color is achieved, 5-7 minutes. Then stir in all the vegetables and garlic, and cook until the mixture begins to turn a deep chocolate color, about 5 minutes. 2. Mix the 4 cups of hot stock into the roux mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and let simmer for 20 minutes. Add more stock if mix is too thick! Season with honey, salt and pepper, to taste. 3. Meanwhile, heat 2'' of canola oil in a sautee pan over medium-high heat until it begins to shimmer. Put the cornmeal in a baking dish and season with salt and pepper. Season the okra with salt and pepper and toss it in the cormeal. Fry the okra in batches in the hot oil until golden brown, approximately 2 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon to a paper-towe lined baking sheet and season lightly with salt. 4. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large saute pan over high ehat until almost smoking. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper, then add half of them to the pan and cook until just pink of either side, about 2 minutes. Set aside on a plate and repeat with the remaining shrimp and 2 tablespoons of oil. 5. Add the shrimp, oysters, and crabmeat to the sauce and simmer until the oysters are plump and cooked through, approximately 1 minute. Divide the seafood into bowls, ladle in the sauce, and garnish with the fried okra, chopped parsley, and green onions- ENJOY!

  • Holiday Prep : Is Your Restaurant Ready?

    The Holiday Season is underway and for restaurants, caterers, and others in the foodservice industry, this is a busy time of year. Here are some tips for sprucing up your daily operation and making a memory for your customers that's both merry and bright.
    • Atmosphere is undoubtedly one of the best ways to set the tone. Pay attention to your lighting, the kind of music that's being played, and the overall feel of your establishment. Changing the decor in subtle ways can also be a nice way to ready your restaurant for the Holiday Season. Fall colored tablecloths or seasonal flower arrangments, jewel-toned votives for the Holidays, all of these things are simple ideas for sprucing up your look. Remember, a little goes a long way, and well thought out details, like the aforementioned, can leave a pleasant memory in the minds of your customers. - Shop Tablecloths - Shop Votives
     
    • Send a holiday email reminding customers about a special offer. This is a great way to keep your restaurant in the back of their mind. Offering gift cards year-round, but particularly through the Holiday Season, can be a great way to add a little more to your bottom line while also providing the customer with an easy gift idea.
     
    • If your restaurant caters to seasonal products and thus a changing menu, emphasize the kinds of Holiday menu items being featured through emails and flyers. Once your customers see what you're doing, word of mouth will take care of the rest. *Since everyone has different beliefs, it's important to be sensitive to Holiday terminology like Merry Christmas. Staying neutral is key.

  • Restaurant Supplies For Your Home!

    A recent trend in home kitchens has been the incorporation of commercial-grade equipment. From ovens to refrigerators to mixers, more and more people have been buying restaurant equipment for home use. The reasons for this are plain, as commercial kitchen equipment is extremely versatile and reliable compared to most residential appliances. Though commercial appliances certainly cost more than their residential counterparts, they can often save money in the long run as they're likely to last much longer. In addition, the minimalist steel look of these appliances is classic and never goes out of style. If you want to prepare food like a pro, or if you simply enjoy cooking and as a result spend a good deal of time in the kitchen, commercial restaurant supplies might be just the answer for you. One popular addition to many homes is a commercial refrigerator. Depending on the size and layout of your home, you may want to consider either a regular commercial refrigerator along with a commercial freezer separate, or a dual-temp unit that combines them like a normal residential model. The dual-temp units are large, many of them offering around 40-50 cubic feet. One of the best models on the market for home use is the True T-49DT. This is a dual-temperature refrigerator/freezer model, and offers a massive amount of storage space, 23 cubic feet on each side for a total of 46 cubic feet. It also features a diagnostic system with dial controls to ensure full and accurate controllability of internal temperatures. Beyond this, it's built like a tank with an attractive stainless steel exterior and vinyl-coated aluminum interior. True also guarantees the T-49DT's door hinges and torsion closure system for life. Other commercial restaurant supplies that have grown in popularity for home use are commercial-grade blenders. Vita-Mix blenders have set the standard in the restaurant industry thanks to their durability, performance and high-quality construction. They offer a complete line of blenders from lower-capacity models with a more limited range of speeds to the king of all commercial blenders, the Vitamix 1502 PBS. The 1502 PBS features an incredible 93 mixing speeds, precise ice portioning, the ability to mix up to four drinks at a single time and all with the simplicity of one button operation. While it may be overkill for some home users, it will certainly earn you bragging rights in the kitchen. Vita-mix is one of those brands though that is an industry standard, and has set the bar for quality in blenders for decades. Regardless of your needs and budget, they offer a machine that will suit you perfectly, and any one of their blenders is an excellent choice that will provide years of operation. In fact, it's not uncommon to see vintage Vita-mix blenders as old as the 1940s still selling for hundreds of dollars online as fully functional machines. The purchase of a Vita-mix is truly a great lifetime investment. Of course, one of the restaurant supplies you'll see in the home kitchen of any true foodie is a commercial range. For controllability, style and reliability you simply can't beat a quality commercial range. There is an astounding selection on the market, offering nearly every unit size and burner configuration you can imagine. Another option that is popular is an integrated oven, which isn't hard to find. Many home users though, prefer to buy just the range so it can be incorporated into a custom countertop or kitchen island, and buy an oven separately. One thing that all of these units have in common is heavy-duty stainless steel construction and gas burners that offer great control. If you do decide to buy a separate oven, there are many great models that will suit your needs. A commercial convection oven makes a great addition to a home kitchen, and can be found in a variety of sizes and configurations. There are countertop units that are a bit smaller, but perfect when hoping to save space. If you have extra room, you can buy a model that stands alone, either on a stand or stacking with separate compartments. One of the best convection ovens out there for home use is made by Garland/US Range; the SDG-2. It's large, featuring a stand-alone configuration with two compartments. It is capable of a temperature range of 200F - 500F in just 60 minutes. It also features electric spark ignition and a two speed .75 horsepower fan motor. It's truly an excellent oven for any discerning chef! One of the fundamental stations at any restaurant or home kitchen is the sink. Most of the time, for residential use, a one-compartment sink is plenty, although many times you will need a 2-compartment option. Our stainless sinks are NSF approved and come in all different price points. View our selection here.

  • The Best Commercial Baking Supplies at the Best Price

     

    Your bakery might have a great staff, but without great equipment and supplies, it will be difficult to sustain as a viable business. There are certain baking supplies that every good bakery needs, and they can be found online for an excellent price.
    1. One of the most essential baking supplies for any commercial operation is a floor mixer. Although there are many types of commercial mixers on the market in various sizes, a serious baking operation should invest in a floor model, as you'll presumably be doing large batches of product eventually, even if your needs are being met by a smaller model now. An additional benefit to the size of a floor mixer is that they can accommodate 50 lb. bags of flour, cake mix, cookie mix or whatever ingredients you'll need. Invest in a quality mixer as you'll use it often and you need one that can last you for many years into the future! Shop Mixers!
    2. Another supply you'll likely get a great deal of use from is a set of commercial baking pans. These also come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and it's good to buy a large selection. There are certain specialty pans that you may never need, but be sure to stock up on the basics. The most essential pans for every baker are cake pans, muffin pans, pie pans and sheet pans. It's important that you have a good stock of all of these. If you can build up a large supply of pans, you can use them in rotating shifts to improve productivity. For instance, if you're preparing something that requires proofing, you can be proofing one batch of dough already laid out on pans while another batch is in the oven or cooling on your other set of pans. Or, you can set up multiple sets of pans before close one night to be baked in the morning, saving time. Shop Baking Pans!
    3. Of course, you're going to need something to move all of these pans around on, which is why several bun pan racks need to be on your list of baking supplies to buy! These tall racks are extremely handy and just might see more use than any other piece of equipment in your kitchen. You will use them to transport your pans from place to place in the kitchen, and they're great for proofing dough or storing baked goods as well.  Make sure to buy covers for all of them too. This seems like a minor detail but they come in very handy for keeping your products free of debris while they're on the rack. Often, bakers will just use large plastic bags as covers. While this is fine in a pinch, it's a bad habit as it's wasteful and expensive in the long run. The pan covers are quite affordable, and many of them are insulated, which comes in very handy for controlling the temperature of your baked goods. Shop Bun Pan Racks!
    4. While you'll be able to proof some types of dough simply by putting them on a bun pan rack in a warm area, other types will require an actual heat source. For this, you should buy at least one heated cabinet. These can be bought with a solid or glass door, depending on your needs. They're quite versatile though, and can be used for many kitchen tasks. Besides proofing, you can use your heated cabinet for keeping baked goods warm while transporting to a bakery case in the front of your house. Shop Holding/Proofing Cabinets!
    5. In addition to all of these supplies, there are a variety of other smaller items you'll need. Many of these depend on your bakery in particular, but can include things like pastry cutters, pie markers, rolling pins, spatulas and sifters. If in doubt, buy as many of these types of common bakery items as you can. Some items you may not see a use for immediately, but you'll need them at some point, and it's better to have them on hand than to be rushing around at the last minute searching your local supermarket for an inferior residential version. Several good kitchen timers are also a great idea. Although some ovens have built-in timers, it's better to set two just in case one of them fails. Or, you can set one a bit earlier to remind yourself to check it. This is especially important when familiarizing yourself with new equipment, or attempting a new recipe where you may be unsure of the exact baking time necessary. Shop all other Baking Supplies!
  • Hunting Season Must-Haves

    Hunting season is almost here! Whether you're a seasoned hunter or a first-timer, processing your own deer is a project worth undertaking. Venison meat processing at home is a great way to save money and when you have the right supplies, it's easy. The first thing you'll need if you hope to process your own venison is a good set of hunting knives. You'll use these quite a bit when preparing meat, so it's smart to buy a high-quality set. One excellent choice is the "HS5600-4 Hunter's Knife Set" made by the respected manufacturer, Mundial Knives. This set includes three different high-carbon stainless steel knives; 3.25-inch camping knife, a 6-inch curved boning knife, and an 8-inch steak knife. It also includes a matching 10-inch sharpening stone, which is a must for keeping your knives in the best shape possible. This is a well-made and very versatile set, and works great for cleaning other meats, as well as fish. Another item you'll want for venison meat processing is a meat tenderizer. A multi-blade handheld meat tenderizer is perfect for venison steaks, and can reduce cooking time drastically. If you want to prepare perfect, tender cuts of meat, it's a good item to have on hand. The Jaccard Super-3 is an excellent and affordable choice. It features 48 surgical stainless steel blades, stainless steel actuating columns and it's dishwasher safe! One of the most essential items for venison meat processing is a quality meat grinder. These are necessary for making ground venison for burgers, chili, burritos and many other dishes. A meat grinder will also be exceptionally handy for making chopped steak. There are several different types of grinders available, as well as general food processors with meat cutting and grinding attachments. One of the most basic, but sturdy grinders on the market is the Jayhawk Sales 22. This is a manual tabletop grinder, and manages to be both affordable as well as extremely durable. It's ideal if you plan to do a limited amount of meat grinding, as its capacity is limited compared to electric models. It will, however, provide years of trouble-free service. If you plan to take on a larger quantity of meat processing, you should consider stepping up to an electric model. Compared to a manual model, a commercial-grade electric grinder will process much faster with less effort from the operator. One of the best values in commercial electric meat grinders is the Vollrath 40743 model. It has a 100v motor, two grinder plates, a number 12 hub and is capable of processing 220 pounds of meat per hour! In addition, the Vollrath includes a stainless steel pan and other accessories such as a stuffer and funnel. It's a reliable model that can handle the rigors of commercial production, but is affordable enough for residential purchase. Another option for meat cutting and grinding is to buy a commercial food processor that is capable of heavy-duty meat processing. The Univex PM91 is a strong contender in this field in terms of quality and value. While it costs more than the Vollrath processor, it's also much more versatile due to its design and different attachments. The Univex PM91 uses a 1inch wide Poly-V belt system driven by a 1 HP motor, and is high-powered enough to process an incredible amount of food very quickly. The benefit of this model over a regular meat grinder is that by using different attachments, it can also slice vegetables, shred cheese, and cut meats in various ways beyond simple grinding. Because it's a heavy-duty commercial model, it can do all of this at a speed far beyond any consumer-grade processor. It's also extremely sturdy, built from heavy-duty stainless steel. If you really want to take your food production to the next level, it's hard to beat the PM91. Finally, don't forget about storing all of this meat! Other important purchases you should consider are a vacuum packaging machine, and if you don't already have one, a large chest freezer. For vacuum packaging, consider another great Vollrath product, the Vollrath 40858 Vacuum Packaging Machine. It's efficient and durable, and can extend the storage life of your food considerably. For a freezer, make sure you buy one that is large enough to handle a great volume of meat. The Arctic Air CF20 is a good choice in this area, constructed of steel and offering 20 cubic feet of storage. It also features heavy-duty casters that make it easy to move, and uses environmentally friendly 134A refrigerant.
