Useful Utensils

These utensils are staples that I use regularly when cooking. They make my life much easier in the kitchen - I wouldn't be without them. Absolutely no useless gadgets, I promise!

Professional Blow Torch


Bigger, better and more powerful than the usual domestic blow torches, this does the job in half the time. 

Perfect for Creme Brulee and similar puddings; for crisping up the crackling on recalcitrant pork skin; chicken skin and anything that would benefit from a bit of last minute colour or crispiness; for adding that professional caramelised look to patisserie and tarts - such as lemon tart.

Fabulous for lighting candles (in a jiffy) and the fire too. No more burnt fingers...!

NB. The torch runs on Butane gas (lighter fuel) which is not included.  It is readily available in cans from tobacconists, garages, newsagents, hardware stores etc.
