Bring the Restaurant Home

A restaurant-quality dinner at home can be everything you need at the end of a long week. It can also impress your significant other this upcoming Valentine’s Day. Elevated dishes, mood lighting, a great playlist, and your favorite sweatpants. What could be better? While that all sounds great, you might think creating restaurant-quality meals can be challenging. But they may be easier than you think. These recipes were crafted with All-Clad which is shown to be superior at responding to heat fast, retaining heat evenly, and going from the stovetop to the oven to your table.

Let’s start with the first course - French onion soup. What makes this dish is the caramelized onions. Caramelizing onions can be intimidating but if you have a pan that retains a low and moderate heat evenly, you can be assured the onions will not burn. Having the ability to cook evenly over a longer period is just one of the ways All-Clad can be the best tool in your kitchen arsenal. Click to check out our French Onion Soup recipe.

One dish that can prove to be difficult or need more experience in the kitchen is Risotto. If cooked too long the rice grains become mushy, if cooked too fast the rice will be undercooked. Maintaining a steady even heat distributed throughout the pan is essential to this dish. An All-Clad sauté pan has higher sides while having a surface area that can cook each grain of rice to perfection. Try out our Wild Mushroom Risotto which gives you a step-by-step guide to making a beautiful Risotto. Using earthy mushrooms, rich pancetta, and a dry white wine base helps to elevate this dish.

A Valentine’s dinner or any other restaurant-quality meal would not be complete without dessert. And what better one to make than the most decadent chocolate skillet brownie. When making the ultimate chocolate skillet brownie you want to make sure once the inside is cooked, the pan cools down quickly to ensure you do not burn the bottom. Our Copper Core Fry Pans & Skillets are the most efficient way to do this. Copper conducts heat so quickly that once you remove the pan from the oven, it will cool fast to ensure the brownie is cooked to perfection. Make our Chocolate Skillet Brownie recipe to end your perfect restaurant dinner at home.
