      'Diamond is a girl's best friend...'

      Our revolutionary range of Kyocera knives and graters are - quite literally - cutting-edge.

      Shunning conventional steel for the diamond-like technical material Zirconia, they are a smoother, cleaner and stay sharper for considerably longer.

      Their smooth surface makes for effortless slicing, as well as being neutral to taste. Fruit and veg will quiver with fear when you bring one home... so don't forget that in our boutique you can come and 'Try Before You Buy'.

      Why to use this condiment?

      Thanks to its transparent, clear consistency it is ideal for sauces, white meat and fish as it does not darken or alter the original color of the food. Its characteristic flower-scented aroma and sweet and sour, fresh and well balanced, harmonic taste, make it ideal for all uses.

                          

      This wine vinegar is aged in oak barrels. A little seeds in the bottom of the bottle testify the genuineness of the product and it’s not going to compromise the qualitative characteristics of this wine vinegar. Unlike wine vinegar, this condiment has a more complex production process, and some familiar characteristic: an intense fragrance, thickness and flavour, a fruity bouquet and an agreeable bittersweet taste.

      It is recommended to flavour and enrich many courses, especially poultry and fish, as well as steamed vegetables and fresh salads.

      The Chef’s recipe :

      Fillet of cod with a white balsamic glaze and beetroot

      Ingredients for 6 people:

      • 6 Fillets of Cod
      • 500 g of precooked beetroots
      • 2 red onions
      • 50 cl of White balsamic vinegar
      • A quarter bundle of dill
      • 20 cl of honey
      • 10 cl of olive oil

      Recipe:

      1-Start off by making the vinaigrette so that it can infuse: Take the red onion and cut the top off, leave the root on. Cut in half and peel. Place half of the onion on the board and make a horizontal cut towards the root (do not cut all of the way) next make vertical cuts along the top of the onion. Turn the onion and cut into small dice. Add the ‘picked’ leaves of dill and white balsamic. Combine all of the ingredients and add a pinch of salt.

      2-Use a mandolin to finely slice the beetroot. You can place the sliced beetroot straight onto your serving plate.

      3-Take the cod and search for ‘pin’ bones use your hands to do this. When you find the bones take the fish tweezers and remove the bones...be persistent!

      4-Heat a non stick pan to a high temperature, add the olive oil and fry the cod skin side down. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes turn the fish over and finish cooking for a further 3 minutes.

      5-Deglaze the pan with white balsamic and honey.

      6-Serve the fish on top of the beetroot and spray your vinaigrette on and around the fish.

      This silicone kitchenware can be put in your oven, microwave (and also in your freezer) because it is heat resistant. You can easily join and remove the superior non stick silicone ring thanks to a pin. Your cake can be served straight from the scratch resistant ceramic base.
