Led by Dean Chapman, CEO of Prepara, the family’s brainstorming sessions have yielded three products that are a perfect fit for entertaining. The innovative Roasting Laurel is a heat-resistant silicone roasting tool that keeps your bird or roast elevated, encourages more consistent browning on the sides, and eliminates sticking. The bendable form lets you mold it to whatever shape you need to keep things upright, or for example, to support fish for steaming.
For easy, one-handed basting, the Chef’s Basting Set includes a silicone squeeze brush and a jar that acts as a docking station so it’s easy to extract your oil, butter, sauces or juices. Lastly, the Chef’s Center Cookbook Holder fits cookbooks, magazines, tablet PCs and e-readers. It has a swivel base to keep your recipes in view and a splatter guard to protect paper pages and electronic screens.
With the right tools, cooking for family and friends can be even more rewarding.
