Michael Pham, is the ‘owner/bosslady’ at Phamily Kitchen Vietnamese and Garden Club – a new food and foliage cafe at 366 Smith Street, Collingwood. Innovation and improvements in kitchen tools have hands-down made Michael’s job easier, for example, ‘A Robot Coupe (food processor) magically transforms a giant box of carrot into miles and miles of wondrous ribbons of food!’ he exclaims! Aside from his go-to spatula, Michael highlights the ‘seductively incredible’ Benriner Japanese Mandolin as a must for any serious cook! ‘Watch those fingers, and you’ll make impossibly thin slices of any vegetable you dream of.’ Photo – Sean Fennessy for The Design Files.
How does your favourite chef, cook or food blogger make catering and entertaining look SO easy? It’s all in the tools.
This afternoon we ask restauranteur Michael Pham of Phamily Kitchen, cook/author Julia Busuttil Nishimura, and caterer Cassie Lucas of Firecracker Event, to divulge their can’t-live-without kitchen essentials.
