" My boyfriend is passionate about food & he’s an amazing cook. Buying the Chasseur Cast Iron Wok a few weeks ago seems like an excellent choice to boost his enjoyment of preparing meals from all over the world.
Whatever he cooks is delicious, but when our wok first arrived he wanted to impress me with something new. He decided to give Spanish traditional food an oriental touch, by cooking Paella in the cast iron wok. The wok heats quickly and even heat distribution allows you to turn the heat down once the wok is hot. Its large flat base makes it easy to stir the ingredients around. There was no burnt or stuck-to-the-bottom rice, only a little bit of oil was needed and the result was amazing… scrumptious Paella.
Warm Catalonian spinach salad was my boyfriend’s second go in the wok. And once again, his creation was mouth-watering. This traditional, vegetable dish is utterly simple. The rings on the underside of the lid allows moisture to gather on the inside, then dripping back onto the food, self-basting it. It only took a few minutes to cook the spinach until wilted, stirring occasionally. The included rack was great for steaming the prawns, no frying or cooking was needed. Added raisins and pine nuts topped up this healthy & tasty dinner.
When it was my turn to try out our new wok I decided to cook my favourite chicken curry, the recipe I had used many times before in an ordinary pan. The chicken was simmering slowly & more evenly in the wok. Mixing things were easier around the wide, shallow & slightly curved sides. So my result is…I’m going to stick to our new wok from now on.
It does not only look great, it’s practical too. With its stylish design it’s perfect for oven to table use and makes a superb centrepiece at any dinner party. The Chasseur cast iron wok is made in France and the range comes in chilli red & cream. Being a red colour fan I didn’t think twice and went for chilli red. Now, it got its own space in our kitchen along with other cookware & bakeware…red, of course.
A 10 year guarantee and most stove top suitability make it an ideal accessory to a busy modern lifestyle! We love it…."
