Recently, readers were treated to a special evening hosted by Gourmet Traveller, Belle and Winning Appliances to hear professional tips on entertaining with a focus on Easter.
Winning Appliances' state-of-the-art showroom in Sydney's Redfern was the elegant setting for an intimate evening focusing on the art of entertaining, with readers gathering to learn tips and tricks from the professionals.
Gourmet Traveller's food and style director, Emma Knowles, demonstrated recipes from a three-course menu for a no-fuss yet impressive dinner party: first up was pea soup with mint and crème fraîche; the main course was ocean trout with a fennel and dill crust with lemon potatoes; and, for the grand finale, Knowles whipped up creamy chocolate pots, a sure-fire crowd-pleaser of a dessert. The guests, meanwhile, were served drinks and canapés including crushed pea and mint crostini with burrata and lemon, and balsamic-glazed fig tartlets with candied walnuts and gorgonzola dolcelatte.
Belle editor Tanya Buchanan and design editor Lucy McCabe styled the venue and spoke about the latest trends in interiors, and the importance of choosing your cooking appliances wisely. One lucky guest, Yvonne Clemesha, won a personal styling session with the pair, plus a Vintec Wine Cabinet from Winning Appliances. It was a winning night all round.
During her cooking demonstration, Emma Knowles used the Gaggenau 200 series 60cm pyrolytic oven. This state-of-the-art oven has nine heating methods and serves as a truly professional brick oven with optional baking stone - for bread, pizza and pastries. A 76-litre interior, electronic temperature control from 50°C to 300°C and the innovative pyrolytic system provide excellent convenience for baking.
Functionalities aside, this oven is also loved by interior designers and architects for its sleek black design.
Key features include flush installation, pyrolytic system, nine heating methods with baking stone function, touch display, panel-free with surface control module, and temperature control from 50°C to 300°C.
