Remember me posting about how excited I was about attending Feast Portland about a week or so ago. Well I can’t wait to share some of my favorite photos of food I tried in the next post. But for now I will share a bit about my new kitchen appliances from Wolf Gourmet.
I got to work with Wolf Gourmet and shoot some photos for them at Feast this past weekend. Their products are so sleek, modern, powerful and just stunning. I was so glad to add some of their products to my kitchen collection, especially excited about the beautiful blender. I created a quick healthy smoothie before heading out for the day of feasting.
This blender has got great counter appeal. I love the touch of red on the knob to play off the red touches I have in my kitchen already. It has a ultra-responsive variable speed powered by the 2.4 peak HP motor propels the blades to speeds over 210 mph. A twist of the dial allows you to blend ingredients to your exact preference. I can’t wait to make some more smoothies, soups and test it out to grind coffee? Maybe not coffee, which it does do, but soup for sure will be my next project with this new kitchen appliance.

- Chop roasted pineapple into small pieces. In a medium bowl, combine pineapple, cucumber, onion, and jalapeño. Season to taste with lime juice and salt. Serve with chicken tacos and avocado crema.
I also got to check out their beautiful Countertop Oven at Feast as they were making one of the two dishes they were serving. The awesome thing is, it’s a perfect convection oven that you can use instead of turning on your big oven. great as an extra oven when you have a lot to bake or roast. It’s the perfect appliance to add to your wish list for the coming up holiday season and use when family or friends are coming to dinner.
The next recipe is for the second dish that was served at Feast. It was a delectable bite of toast, topped with ricotta, roasted plums, honey, orange zest and black pepper
ROASTED PLUM & RICOTTA TARTINE WITH HONEY & BLACK PEPPER (Recipe from Epicurious)
- 6 plums, ripe but firm, halved and pits removed
- honey, for drizzling
- olive oil, for drizzling
- 8 slices of rustic crunchy bread
- 2 2/3 cups best quality full fat ricotta
- Fleur de sel
- fresh ground black pepper
- 1 orange
- Heat Wolf Gourmet Countertop Oven to Convection/Roast 375°F. Line the Wolf Gourmet baking pan with parchment paper and place plums in the pan cut sides up.
- Drizzle with olive oil and honey. Roast until tender and juices begin to release, 5-10 minutes.
- Once complete, toast the bread until just golden. Spread 1/3 cup ricotta on each slice. Arrange plums on top of ricotta and spoon juices over.
