Restaurant Week 2018: David's Restaurant
This year marked the 10th anniversary of Maine Restaurant Week, a local initiative to boost restaurants’ business during the winter season. Portland’s Old Port (where LeRoux Kitchen is located) is home to many award-winning restaurants serving everything from classic lobster rolls to exotic nouvelle cuisine. One of our all-time favorites is David’s Restaurant, the culinary anchor to award-winning Chef David Turin’s popular Maine restaurants. This past week we had the opportunity to meet Chef David in the kitchen to see how he uses our Cuisinart®MultiClad Pro Stainless Cookware to create some of his tastiest creations.
The unique layout of David’s Restaurant allows for patrons to feel part of the culinary experience as the kitchen is accessible to the main dining area. The rich aroma of tantalizing seafood and fresh baked pizza fills the space, making it difficult to not want to order every item off the menu. That day, David prepared us Pepper Crusted Sushi Rare Tuna, a dish consisting of sesame-peanut soba noodles, szechwan citrus sauce sesame asparagus, and a scrumptious shrimp dish.
As restaurant owner and head chef, David relies on cookware that consistently performs well and can last the test of time. He opts for the Cuisinart®MultiClad Pro Stainless skillets because the stainless triple ply construction with the core of pure aluminum allows for unsurpassed durability and performance. The heat SurroundTM technology makes for even heat distribution, which makes it easier to prepare multiple dishes in half the time.
“What an incredible product. We use each skillet about twelve times a day, on full flame, and then immediately wash them in ice cold water. If they can stand up to our using them at full capacity all year round and can survive, imagine how useful they can be for the everyday home chef who wants a durable product that will last them a lifetime.”
At LeRoux, we believe that every meal is a chance to create and to connect with others. The assortment of products and ingredients we sell serve as components for something larger, allowing our customers to create unique experiences for themselves, for their friends and for their family through the preparation and enjoyment of food. It brings us great joy to know that we can deliver ease of cooking to well-known restaurant chefs and home chefs alike.
We look forward to sharing more food recipes and customer stories on the blog!
