In Part 1, we discussed about wine openers and how each one functions in removing the cork that protects and preserves wine, and introduced the Winged Corkscrew a. k. a. Butterfly Corkscrew. the Waiter’s Friend Corkscrew. and the The `Ah-So’ a. k. a. Two-Prong Cork Puller. (You may read about it at http://manilastandardtoday. com/2015/08/23/a-look-at-wine-openers-part-1-/). Below are the three other wine openers:. The “Rabbit Ear” or “Bunny Ear” Wine Opener. There is a mounted and an un-mounted version to this brilliant piece of mechanical ingenuity. The screw/spiral bit from the rabbit ear penetrates through the cork and pulls the entire cork out in one swift motion. After the wine is opened, the second motion from the rabbit ear opener releases the cork. I used this quite a lot when I was operating a wine bar several years back, and my mounted Rabbit Ear also looks quite aesthetic. My only “beef” with this opener – and this same argument applies on the next two openers succeeding this one – is that the spiral bit touches the wine as it penetrates the cork to pull the entire cork out. As a wine purist, I hate that my wine gets touched by anything foreign. The un-mounted version costs around P1,000. 00 each, while the mounted version can be more expensive. The Screwpull Opener. Screwpull is a trademark created in conjunction with its wine opener in 1979 by owner- designer Herbert Allen of Hallen International Inc. The company and its very successful Screwpull line of wine openers and accessories was sold in 1991 to French cookware and kitchen tools company Le Creuset. Screwpull openers are designed to hold and cover the neck of wine bottles and feature Teflon coated screws/spiral bits that easily pierce and penetrate through the cork until the cork is thoroughly released. I bought my first Screwpull in the mid 1990s, and until now I still marvel at this simple, yet extremely efficient wine opener. The model I got is the Le Creuset Travel Screwpull that has a removable and extendable handle, aside from its compact size. I rarely use my Screwpull now (as mentioned previously, I do not like my wine being touched by the screw), but I still show it to my classes when I conduct my wine seminars as an example of a very good kind of wine opener. The Travel Screwpull costs around. Source: manilastandardtoday.com
The Condiments | Criss Cross, Barbecue Sauce. For over 60 years, the pickiest Manhattanites have trusted the Upper East Side butcher shop Lobel’s to stock the tastiest cuts of meat. And now the Lobel family is upping the ante. This month, they launched a marinade, rub, steak sauce and revamped barbecue sauce. According to co-owner Mark Lobel, it took 10 years for him and his relatives to agree unanimously on recipes that really “floored” them. The savory steak sauce has a subtle kick of horseradish and would do just as well on a juicy burger as on a dry-aged tri-tip, while the barbecue sauce is intended for every. Source: www.wsj.com
CORNING, N. Y. (AP) — Pyrex cookware has been around for 100 years, ever since creator Corning Glass Works determined the heat-resistant glass used for rugged railroad lanterns also made a lovely sponge cake. The Corning Museum of Glass is marking the centennial with an exhibition devoted to the kitchen staple that started the country cooking in glass. Opening June 6, the display will pull from the museum's 2,000-piece collection of Pyrex, from the first pie dish to the ubiquitous measuring cup, rounded out with decades of advertisements, design drawings, cookbooks and catalogs. Here are five things to know about Pyrex on its 100th anniversary, according to the Corning Museum of Glass. Corning Glass Works, now Corning Inc. , was using a type of glass called Nonex, a temperature-resistant borosilicate glass, for railroad lanterns and battery jars when it began looking for additional uses to expand the market. Corning scientist Jesse Littleton brought a sawed-off battery jar to his wife, Bessie, who baked a sponge cake in it. She found the baking more even and efficient than the ceramic or metal pans of the time, and liked that it allowed for a clear... Pyrex was released to the public in 1915. The first 12 clear glass products included covered casserole dishes, pie plates, shirred egg dishes, custard cups, loaf pans, au gratin dishes and oval baking dishes. Corning developed durable white dishes for military mess halls in the 1940s, which evolved into the popular Pyrex opalware after World War II. Between 1956 and 1987, designers borrowed from the colors and designs of the times to come up with... Today, collectors scour yard sales and thrift shops for pieces and patterns, trade online and share pictures. Production of opalware stopped in 1987 as demand waned. MEASURING CUP. Does anyone not have a spouted Pyrex measuring cup in their kitchen. The clear glass vessel with red markings came out in 1925 and is considered the most iconic piece of Pyrex. One is displayed as part of chef Julia Child's kitchen at the Smithsonian Institution. The measuring cup underwent a significant redesign at Corning in the 1980s when the handle went from a closed loop to a comma, which allows for various sizes to be stacked. Source: www.nwitimes.com
