Summertime is Celebration Time

Zwilling J. A. Henckels’ FOUR STAR knife line

This is a very special year for many reasons, among them are: Two friends are celebrating their 40th birthday this year! I am so happy that they are part of my life and my business. They are inspirational, fun to be with, creative, enjoy life in many ways and love to be in the kitchen.

Also celebrating 40 years is the Zwilling J. A. Henckels FOUR STAR knife line. The series is a global bestseller. Over 32 million FOUR STAR knives have been sold to date. And they haven’t changed a thing since its inception in 1976 – because there’s nothing to improve. Henckels knives are exceptionally durable as they are forged from a single piece of high-quality steel.

Knife Skills: Using the Whole Broccoli

Once you’ve cut your broccoli florets, the stem is often discarded. It is full of flavour and fibre beyond the woody exterior. Simply peel the stalk with a peeler and then, using a chef’s knife, cut into rounds, sticks or dices. This is perfect for soups and salads. Try with veggies and dip or hummus.


Broccoli Pasta Bake

Broccoli Pasta Bake

The Broccoli pasta bake will work well in our Staub ceramic promo above – white is great, because the food does all the talking.


  • 250 g. Rigatoni pasta
  • 500 g. Broccoli, chopped
  • 300 g. Cherry tomatoes
  • 4 Eggs
  • 250 ml. Milk
  • 125 g. Gruyère or Emmental cheese, grated
  • Salt, pepper, nutmeg to taste


  1. Cook pasta in salted water for 8 minutes. Add the broccoli to the pasta and cook for an additional 4-5 minutes.
  2. Drain the water and rinse with cold water. Place the pasta, broccoli and cherry tomatoes in a buttered ceramic oven safe dish.
  3. Preheat the oven to 375˚F and position the rack to the lower level. Mix eggs with milk and 2/3 of the cheese in a mixing bowl. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste. Pour the mixture evenly over the pasta and vegetables.
  4. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake for approximately 40 minutes.
