New range, what should I cook first?
I am so excited that I have a new range! It is my first new/good range; all the others I inherited with houses I've lived in.
So I know I have to break it in a bit first, but when the initial burnoff is done, what should the inaugural dinner be? I'm open to suggestions...I like everything.
Here is the thing about new-to-you ranges. It will take you some time to learn what each burner is capable of. What does low do for a sauce? Does it bubble vigorously and just bring a gentle bubble to the surface every 4 seconds? When you need high heat, will your meat sizzle or steam? Is the front left best for bringing things to a boil or the back right?
So, I would suggest a series of warm-up meals. Start by investigating the characteristics that you need for your cooking. And then when you are confident that you are in control, plan that perfect meal, whatever it is.
Very exciting to have a new stove!
I too have a new one, and my emphasis so far has been on CLEAN things to cook. I don't have the heart to have drips or splatters on the beautiful surfaces.
A simple salmon dinner with summer vegetables. My go to recipe, I make it once a week.
Salmon fillet, drizzle of olive oil, grated lemon rind, bake at 350 until done. Simple and elegant.
