Zengaz Eats: Part 2
When people think of torches in the kitchen, they tend to assume that the only recipe they can be used for is creme brûlée and not much else. Let's just say they are wrong. Because you know what can be really helpful in the kitchen? A stream of HOT FIRE.
Here's what else you can make using your Zengaz torches:
Brown the Topping on Mac and Cheese
If you don’t have time to make macaroni and cheese in the oven, you can still fake the crispy, oven-baked crust with a culinary torch. Once you're done with your favorite mac n cheese recipe, spoon into a bowl, sprinkle lightly with breadcrumbs, and brown the breadcrumbs with a Zengaz torch until the cheese bubbles and the breadcrumbs are lightly browned.
Make a Tuna Melt or Patty Melt
If you don’t have a toaster oven and don’t want to turn on the broiler of your oven, you can still make a tuna melt or salmon melt. Assemble the melt, then use your Zengaz torch to melt the cheese on top until it bubbles. Hold it a little further away until the cheese melts, then bring it in closer to make the cheese brown and bubble.
Finish a Gratin
Get a crisp, beautifully browned crust on au gratin potatoes with a Zengaz torch. After it is completely cooked in the oven, sprinkle the gratin lightly with finely grated parmesan cheese and perhaps a light drizzle of truffle oil. Work the Zengaz jet torch back and forth over the surface of the gratin until the cheese and potatoes begin to crisp and brown.
