  • Serving up a Grommet – E Molto Bono!

    During her first visit, Teresa Scenna demonstrated how to slice the tenderest tomatoes with the Kyocera Tomato Knife. After numerous requests for her return, we set out to find another Grommet worthy of her culinary talent. When the submission for Bialetti Saute Pan and Espresso Maker came in, we knew these Grommets would be perfect for Teresa to test.  Bialetti, is a company with rich history, conceived by Alfonzo Bialetti along with the Moka Express Coffee Machine, which is revered as a design icon. In fact, the plans for the Moka design now reside in the London Museum of Art. Teresa was very much familiar with Bialetti -- it is the number one company in Italy for both espresso makers and cookware. Not only was she interested in testing these products for us, but she invited me over to her home for dinner! So, I spent a wonderful evening in the home of  Teresa and her husband Ennio, where she so graciously prepared a fabulous meal for us.

    Teresa put the Aeternum Ceramic Sauté Pan to the test and cooked up  her husband's, Ennio Scenna, favorite dish.  She made Poached Egg with Tomato and Pepper, which is ideal for Sunday brunch or a casual dinner. We are so pleased that she was willing to share her recipe with the Grommet community.

    ______________________________________________

    Teresa and Ennio Scenna

    You can find a few more of Teresa recipes online at  Yankee Magazine. It was a true pleasure to sit at Teresa's table and enjoy her  Italian poached egg recipe  with her and Ennio.  Her family and friends have the good fortune to have congregating at Teresa and Ennio’s table for many years and have enjoyed many wonderful meals together. This November the couple will celebrate their 58th wedding Anniversary. After having had the pleasure of eating not one, but two, of Teresa's meals  here at Daily Grommet -- I have to admit that I am a little envious that Ennio has enjoyed 58 years of Teresa's amazing cooking. So folks, send us more kitchen Grommet ideas so we have more excuses to invite Teresa to come cook for us!

  • Need an allergy friendly restaurant? Visit Allergy Eats

    As families enjoy more free time this summer, they’re likely to be eating out, either in their hometowns or while traveling during summer vacation. Allergy Eats, a new, fast-growing, interactive website, is a valuable resource, helping people with food allergies find allergy-friendly restaurants, whether they’re dining close to home or hitting the road for summer adventures.

    I recently chatted with Paul Antico, founder of AllergyEats.com who started this online community because:

    “When I take my family out to eat, sometimes we have trouble finding restaurants that will accommodate my children’s food allergies," [and] "I knew we weren’t the only family facing these challenges, and I vowed to make it easier for people with food allergies to find safe restaurants.”

    Paul Antico (center) with his son Keegan, 8, on his left. Keegan is allergic to tree nuts, peanuts, dairy, eggs, and sesame. On his right is his son Tucker, 13, who is allergic to tree nuts.

    Paul, what surprised you most as you began developing www.AllergyEats.com?

    Since I began developing AllergyEats two years ago, the biggest surprise has been the unity of the food allergy community. There is a large online and offline food allergy community made up primarily of passionate individuals like myself who have been affected (directly or indirectly) by food allergies. People who have decided to commit their time in order to help make living with food allergies easier. The support within this community is terrific. Where I once thought I would be creating AllergyEats “in a bubble,” I have now found that I have a network of wonderful people I can call on for advice, support, criticism, and anything else. The feeling is that we are all in this together and to the extent that one person’s efforts succeed, we all win.

    What has been the most rewarding part of helping the allergy community?

    The most rewarding part of creating AllergyEats is very simple. It is the emails that people send thanking me for doing this and letting me know that AllergyEats is making a difference in their lives. Each time I receive one of these emails, I picture a smiling child enjoying an “exciting dining experience” (because that is what it is to them) and I can’t help but smile too. That is the greatest reward for me.

    Allergy Eats offers free membership and access to a national database of well over 600,000 restaurants. The site combines the best of Internet technology with peer-to-peer feedback to help people know in advance how well (or poorly) a restaurant responds to people with food allergies.

    Thank you Paul for sharing Allergy Eats with us. We know that you are positively impacting the lives of many families. Keep up the important work!

  • Margarita Chicken Sandwich Recipe

    I recently found out that my friend Ali's husband Gav was not only a great chef, but that he has a blog devoted to sharing his amazing recipes. I asked him if he's be willing to share one of his mouth-watering creations and luckily for us, he obliged.

     chicken sandwich recipe

    This sandwich was inspired by a recipe I saw Guy Fieri cook up once on Food Network. It's really a great example of how far we've come with grilled foods. This is almost the anti-burger 'n dogs you grew up with but it is incredibly good eats.

     chicken sandwich recipe

    The flavors and textures work so well together, it's truly a thing of beauty. The crunch of the cabbage and red onion - the punch of flavor from the tequila marinated chicken and fried red pepper, the smooth, creamy mayo accent. This sandwich will floor 'em.

    ******************************************

    Margarita Chicken Sandwich

    Adapted from Food Network

    Serves: 4

    Ingredients:

    2 jalapenos, halved, seeded & thinly sliced
    3 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves
    4 tablespoons tequila
    1 tablespoon garlic, minced
    1 teaspoon red chili flakes
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 tablespoon dried oregano
    2 limes, juiced
    2 teaspoons salt, divided
    4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to flatten
    4 roasted sweet red bell peppers, drained & sliced to flatten
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 cups canola oil
    4 Kaiser rolls
    4 tablespoons mayonnaise
    1/4 green cabbage, thinly sliced
    1/4 red onion, thinly sliced

    Preparation:

    1. In a medium mixing bowl add jalapenos, cilantro, tequila, garlic, red chili flakes, cumin, oregano, lime juice, and 1 teaspoon salt. Place the chicken breasts in a large resealable bag and pour in marinade. Let marinate in refrigerator for 4 to 8 hours.
    2. In a small mixing bowl add flour, remaining 1 teaspoon salt and the garlic powder. In a small skillet heat the canola oil over Medium-High heat. Dredge peppers in flour mixture and fry until crispy. When done drain on paper towels.
    3. Heat grill to High. Remove chicken from marinade, and add chicken to the grill.
    4. Cook chicken thoroughly on both sides, flipping once, about 15-20 minutes total. Remove from heat and cover. Let sit for 5 minutes then slice thin.
    5. Lightly toast rolls. Spread mayonnaise evenly among the rolls and then stack with the cabbage, onion, chicken breast and fried roasted peppers.

    Thanks so much, Gav! I can't wait to try this one. Make sure you check out both Gav's website and his book in order to give your taste buds a treat.

  • One Charming Inventor

    If you haven't heard the name- Leslie Hayward you are in for a treat. This southern-belle may be sweet and charming but she is also a  sharp inventor with a great go-get 'em personality (just watch her on ABC's Shark Tank or read her small business tips  featured in Inc. Magazine).

     It's no secret that the Daily Grommet team loves  grilling accessories and when we first met Leslie, we found in her an instant friend (after all she is the self proclaimed grilling queen). Because we are always interested in a product's story, we were curious how Leslie came up with her idea. Here is what she told us  about how her invention, Grill Charms was born:

    Leslie

    "While sitting down to eat at a dinner party I was hosting, my husband served me an extra hot Jamaican Jerk piece of chicken instead of a mild one because he had forgotten which pieces were which. After this very memorable and very spicy light bulb moment in April 2006 I have felt what I can only describe as a compulsion to insure every American gets what they want - how they want it - hot off the grill. So, I invented Grill Charms™, the absolute "must have" grilling accessory that is revolutionizing the American cook-out. My vision is to see Grill Charms™ as prominent in the American household as the wine charm." 

     

    So what exactly are Grill Charms?

    They are dime-sized solid stainless steel charms that are placed in your food BEFORE grilling. The serrated stems hold them in securely while flipping, moving and grilling food like you normally do. Grill Charm food prior to cooking to distinguish spices and flavors, steak temperatures, or to avoid health or allergy issues. Grill Charms identifies your food before, during and after grilling so when dinner comes off the grill, simply look for your Grill Charm, and everyone knows which one is theirs.

    We also like the new trend Leslie shared with us:  "Season your own" cook-out.  This is where the host provides the meat, the guests pick their Grill Charm and choose from a variety of sauces or rubs that the host has set out.  Guests flavor their meat any way they wish and nobody, including the grill master needs to know or care how it's seasoned.  When food is brought to the table, guests simply look for their Grill Charm. 

    Thanks Leslie for sharing Grill Charms with us. We firmly believe that making a cookout even more enjoyable is always a good thing. Keep up the hard work and we will keep rooting you on!

    Leslie is graciously offering Daily Grommet readers $5.00 off the purchase of any Grill Charm collection. Just put "grilling" in the coupon code at http://www.grillcharms.com/ for $5.00 off. Thanks Leslie!
