eG Foodblog: *Deborah* - Power, Convection and Lies


Recommended Posts

Once upon a time, there was a little girl whose Mum used to take her out for Report Card Dinners, beginning with Grade 1, the onset of thirteen years of straight As (...then university happened. Let’s not go there :wink:). We would go to fancy places when we could afford them, and less-fancy places when we couldn’t. My palate wasn’t too discriminating at the age of 5: I was happy to go out, period, and had as much fun at Le Champignon as I did at The Old Spaghetti Factory (I have an abiding love for spumoni and pistachio gelato to this day) or The Noodlemaker (watching the koi madly swim beneath the little bridges, summoned to their dinner by the gong--was there ever anything more enchanting for a child?). The waiters at Le Champignon were charmed by my nascent French-language skills and always gave me extra desserts off the pastry tray.

The Report Card Dinner underwent a few changes over time, as circumstances and location changed (when we moved to the East Coast to live with my stepdad, the economic situation meant that an RCD was more likely to just be something special, home-made, than a dinner out in NYC or, later, Philadelphia), but the concept of good food as a reward for good behaviour or good marks was set. When I have something to celebrate, the first thing I want to do, still, is go out for a good meal.

Fast-forward 30-something years, and I’m back in Vancouver, living in a flash condo just outside of Yaletown, with a gas stove and granite counters...

gallery_28661_2918_16411.jpg

gallery_28661_2918_37075.jpg

cooking now and then, baking a lot of homely but tasty birthday cakes for my co-workers, finding eGullet thanks to Jamie Maw’s column in Vancouver Magazine, finding some bosom pals who appreciate food the way that I do...real estate goes insane, I decide to sell my condo, take my profit and run, and buy a little house in East Vancouver.

The little house has an enormous problem, though: the kitchen is a joke. It comes complete with an electric range and a built-in banquette, reminiscent of an RV. Just my style....NOT!

gallery_28661_2918_51526.jpg

gallery_28661_2918_34834.jpg

It just so happens, I know this kitchen designer...:biggrin:

I decide I need a new kitchen, dining room, and refurbished bathroom upstairs (the living space is up, bedrooms are down). I hire a guy I know to act as my General Contractor and do this work for me, with kitchen design, cabinetry and so forth from Daddy-A.

Now we come to the matter of the title of this blog: Power, Convection and Lies. Some of you may recognize a riff on a favourite 1980s New Order album. I’ve kind of always wanted a big fancy range, somewhat for snobby reasons (I mean, let’s be honest here!), but also for practical reasons. I got a real jones on for Power when I took the Serious Foodie cooking class at Northwest Culinary Academy of Vancouver. Then I had a dinner party which brought home to me the utility and desirability of two ovens and an extra burner or two...

So I’ve sold my soul to the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce for a 48 in. Wolf range with 6 burners and a chargrill--and two ovens, one of which is Convection. My first! we'll see what it does to my baking.

That brings us to the Lies. :hmmm:

I know that construction is always later than they say it will be, and I mean they’ve only been working on the 300 sq. ft or so of the renovation since the beginning of March :rolleyes: ...everyone told me the millwork would be late, bla bla bla. The first thing that was supposed to be finished was the bathroom, since it’s rather inconvenient running down and upstairs all the time, and I didn't have water available upstairs for about two months. Then things were to be done as much as possible so that the millwork could come in, the countertops could be installed, the appliances could be installed, and Bob was supposed to be my uncle....

Well, I rescheduled my blog when it became apparent that the earlier date would be impossible.

The millwork was right on time, the countertops were early, the appliances came in a week ago...and they’re still not completely installed. The other rooms are in even worse shape! My contractor has a habit of saying "I’m going to do X tomorrow, Deborah," and then not only not doing X, not doing anything.

If I had more money, I’d fire him and hire someone a little more reliable, but I won’t go into the whole rigmarole. Suffice to say that, while I thought about calling this blog Power, Convection and Size, Lies seems more appropriate just now.

So here I am. Blogging.

My house continues to be a work in progress, but I hope it progresses rather quickly as I have invited 7 Gulleters/spouses over for dinner on Saturday :hmmm: The menu is sort of set; the wine has been bought; the crystal has been unpacked :shock: and I just hope I can get my house in shape in time!

Aside from Saturday dinner, we’ll do some Vespa shopping (I commute to work on my new Vespa, Enzo, every day :wub:), go to the first Trout Lake Market of the year (since my house conveniently backs onto Trout Lake :wink:), hit a luau, and I’ll show you a couple of my favourite restaurants. With luck, God and the electrician willing, I’ll even be able to do some cooking in the midst of all this! and watch some hockey! Go Oilers!

I will have more pics in the morning. Well, a few. Everything is still pretty topsy-turvy, but I am determined to make my coffee in the new kitchen tomorrow, for the first time.

Time for bed.

Good night, Gullet!

I always think of Jean Reno in the Big Blue when I hear that name. Suspecting a pet-less environment this week, I propose a pic of your new Vespa, Enzo! :rolleyes:

Enzo is named after Enzo Ferrari, since he's a nice Ferrari red (I hope this doesn't tread on any Piaggio toes or anything, but I don't know too much about the company history)...and there are certainly pets! they stayed out last night, though, and I'm not sure when they'll make an appearance. We'll have pics of Enzo as well as I will be trying to fit my shopping in the various receptacles!

I haven't been a patron of anything at Trout Lake Market yet, since I just moved here a few months ago and the market hasn't begun yet for the season. I have heard good things about three vendors in particular: Rise Bakery, Milan's Heirloom tomatoes (not out yet, of course), and Bad Girl Chocolates. I was planning to get some seafood for Saturday night, so perhaps Iron Maiden can help me out! thanks for the recommendation. I like to support the small guy where possible.

My coffee machine should be warm by now, I will have the unveiling of the state of the kitchen momentarily.

Ah, I have a cup of coffee in front of me :wub:

Action picture!

gallery_28661_2918_18379.jpg

I saved the Lavazza packaging I opened a few days ago. I am probably the least chic of anyone I know with respect to coffee. I like the fancy coffees, but ...this stuff is so cheap that it's really hard to justify spending twice as much for something else, since I like the taste! I should be PC, but I like this and it's consistent. It's not even the fancy Lavazza! :laugh:

And here is a broader view of the kitchen.

gallery_28661_2918_56773.jpg

I started to switch the handle last night, but decided to finish today. My kitchen design had to change on the fly as we discovered a vent that was too tricky to move, and I've ended up with a mirror of the original design. Alas, the fridge was delivered before the design change! There's my custom little built-in, to accommodate my IKEA wine racks :laugh:

gallery_28661_2918_16933.jpg

That shelf was originally intended for cookbooks, but right now it's holding the crystal. I'm not sure how it will pan out. In spite of having more cupboards than in my old kitchen, logic is compelling me to arrange certain things certain ways, and the cupboards above that shelf are not big enough for all my glassware at all.

gallery_28661_2918_42384.jpg

My Wolf :wub: After reading many topics on eGullet, I ordered the s-grates (at a rather ridiculous additional cost, I must say!)...my wrists tend to be weak, and I will have a much easier time shifting heavy pots from one burner to another, so it's worth it. Although the gas is hooked up, the plug it's plugged into isn't, nor is the hood fan, so I haven't been able to use it yet. I hope it's done in time for dinner tonight, the Mouse family is supposed to come over! :unsure:

gallery_28661_2918_18118.jpg

And the corner with the coffee machine. I'm not sure if it will stay there. I can't really have things on the counters yet, since there are still trades all over the place. Notice the jerry-rigged power cord :laugh: It's that Power thing again!

And I assure you all that, while I am certainly not the neatest person in the world, the current state of my kitchen (and the rest of the house, really) bears no relation whatsoever to how I usually have things!

I will be online during the day, but no new photos till I get home this evening. Have a good day, everyone, and cross your fingers that there's good Power news when I get home!

My Wolf :wub:

Woo hoo! It fit!!! :laugh:

Deborah & I had a running debate over the size of this range. Typically, I wouldn't put a range this large into an 8' x 11' kitchen. Then again, Deborah wasn't a typical client and the 48" range really made sense for her. I kept teasing her that while I was sure the range would fit into the design, I wasn't sure the range would actually be able to fit through the narrow hallways and make it into the kitchen.

Hah! Arne, I'll take another pic later to show you the 1/32 in. clearance available on either side of the range...and I didn't show the wall opposite the kitchen that got a bit smashed...or the gouge in the dining room wall (the only one that was nicely painted, as it happens). Sigh. That's OK. My crummy photography notwithstanding, it's a thing of beauty.

Oh, *Deborah*, you really are a brave soul! Then again, there are enough folks around here who've been through the kitchen renovation thing, or are starting it, or are thinking about it, that I suspect this blog will be keenly watched. After all, misery loves company! :laugh:

I like the color scheme.

Could you show an up-close of the S grates? I haven't been following that thread (I afraid of getting the new-stove bug) so I don't know what you're talking about. A friend of mine has just finished a kitchen reno - complete with 2 ovens (one convection) and she's in heaven.

How's the weather in Vancouver now?

Enzo is named after Enzo Ferrari, since he's a nice Ferrari red (I hope this doesn't tread on any Piaggio toes or anything, but I don't know too much about the company history)[....]

Weird, I tell you.

Yesterday morning on the 109 bus from 69th Street (I missed the 7:47 R3 to Swarthmore), I was reading a story in The Philadelphia Inquirer about some bizarre car crash in California in which a strange character made mincemeat of a Ferrari Enzo by sending it into a utility pole at somewhere north of 160 mph. The driver was badly injured but survived, and it seems that all sorts of shady things about him are coming to the surface as the authorities investigate the accident and how the driver managed to get his hands on the car, which wasn't his. The Enzo is one of those rare "exotic" sports cars--only a few hundred were produced, and each one sells for probably about what your condo fetched (somewhere around US$600,000).

The article includes lamentations from exotic-car buffs.

I trust that your Vespa is nowhere near that exotic and that you wouldn't jet around Vancouver on it doing 160 anyway (if it is capable of that speed to begin with).

Good luck getting your kitchen to fall into place. Your range is a Wolf, but it looks like your fridge is not a Sub-Zero (not that I would suspect you would get one after reading the rather discouraging posts about SZ reliability here on eG), but rather something much more mundane. It actually bears some resemblance to the Frigidaire in my apartment, except that you have a bottom-freezer model. Anything inside it yet?

Deb, just a quick note to say good luck with the blog and the kitchen completion. Never did see the "before" photos. Needless to say the reno, incomplete though it is, is already miles above.

PS: Be sure to show off the sink that can double as a St Bernard washdown station too.

Well Deb, it begins, and with only 3/4 of a kitchen. I sooooo hope that when you get home this evening you have power and everything is almost finished. Just remember to keep the blood pressure in check.

I still think you should have kept that banquette as part of a feature in your new dining room. It was so comfy and had so much character.

Oh, I don’t know...so far three are planned...we’ll sip tea in the park; we’ll go to a wonderful place near the park; and then we’ll probably park ourselves at the bar of a groovy modern Japanese spot. :wink: All will be revealed!

I like the color scheme.

Thanks! I wanted a bright colour and I’ve just been all about orange lately.

I will definitely take a better pic of the stove--many!--and show the s-grates a little more clearly.

Our weather is sublime! we had a record setting day on Tuesday: about 29°C (85°F) and today is another clear, cloudless day. Forecast high of 25°C (77°F). The rain will make an appearance before I’m done, though.

My Vespa is pretty run of the mill, for a Vespa! although Enzo came with a whack of chrome extras (they were already on in the shop, and impatient me couldn’t wait for an undecorated model to ship)...The top speed I’ve attained so far is about 65 kph (40 mph), Enzo only has 50 cc!

I’ve had the fridge since I moved in, and there are a few things in there. Mustard, wine...you know! :laugh:I can post the obligatory pic later :smile: It is an Amana. I didn’t have budget for anything fancy in the fridge department, but I like the fridge up/freezer down concept a lot.

The rich warm colors you chose for the kitchen walls are so appealing.

And I really admire the little built-in wine rack.

Good luck with the remodel finishing soon and well, and thanks for blogging.

May I suggest the type of rack that holds the inverted glasses by the base might go UNDER your cabinet? The glasses might block the outlet, but not too badly, I think.

That's a good option. I don't know if I will keep that quantity of glasses out all the time, either; I might put some back in the box and have a little more space on the shelf for other things.

Kitchen is looking good. You and Daddy-A have done a great job so far.

How are you liking the faucet you picked? We picked the same one for our kitchen reno job, which is very much a work in progress. Reading your posts is like deja vu all over again. I also have self-imposed deadlines by scheduling dinner parties in a kitchen that is not even installed yet...

I usually work best to deadline; I think my contractor does, too.

I like the faucet a lot, so far! it was much bigger than I expected (I ordered off eBay), but seeing as I have the enormous, pony-washing sink

Yes, the eating part won't be a problem. So tell me, was there some sort of sliding scale involved, or was it a "good/bad report card--go/no go" system? Inquiring minds want to know! :biggrin:

hit a luau,

Please let that be a Victoria Day luau. That seems to be an appropriately Vancouver-ish thing to do (I have no idea why - it just does!).

I can't wait to see pictures of the final kitchen - I love the orange.

This should be a fun week!

      It's been more than a year in which international travel was challenging to impossible, but gladly this is changing, as more countries are able to vaccinate their population.
      Greece had managed to return to a state of near normality, and opted to allow vaccinated individuals to enter. And so I decided to go on a slightly spontaneous vacation (only slightly, we still had almost a month for planning). To the trip I was joined by my father, to whom I owed some good one-on-one time and was able to travel on a short-ish notice.
       
       
      Many people are yet unable to travel, and many countries are suffering quite badly from the virus, and therefore I considered if I should wait some time with this post. However, I hope that it will instead be seen with an optimistic view, showing that back-to-normal is growing ever closer.
       
       
      We returned just a few days ago, and it will take me some time to organize my photos, so this is a teaser until then.

      I'm a Brit. I'm also a closet Frenchman.  To cap it all, I'm happily retired in Bangkok, the city of a street food culture that's second to none. The Thais are healthy and slim. I'm just this side of alive and far from slim. Lockdown has me fantasizing about my days working in London, Paris and New York, an existence, if one could call it that, revolving around gastronomy of one kind or another. They paid me, not so very much as it happens, to do what I enjoy doing most in life. We all get to do it, but I was one of a fortunate few who made it his metier. Well all that's in the past now, but I still dream of my time in Paris when lunch was a tad short of 2-hours, little-known local bistros remained affordable until the day they were discovered by La Bible (Michelin Guide) and the students were revolting - this was the summer of '68, for heaven's sake. Someone should open bistro here in Bangkok with a table d'hote of Soupe a l'Oignon gratinee, Blanquette de Veau, a stinky Epoisses and Tarte Tatin to finsih with creme fraiche. Ah, it's back to lockdown and pad Thai.

      I was thinking of doing a food blog of my recent trip through parts of New Zealand's south island.  Most of the food we had was nothing spectacular, but the experiences and various scenery we had over the trip were amazing.  Is there any interest in this?
    • By Melania
      It's one o'clock on a warm summer's day in Florence, I'm on my way to get ingredients for lunch. The sun is high in the sky, the cobblestones are warm under my feet and the aroma of something delicious is in the air. My mind starts to drift to the onions, celery and tomatoes I need for my pasta sauce, oh and don't forget something sweet for dessert...this truly is la dolce vita.
       
      My thoughts are soon interrupted by an unwelcome "chiuso" sign on the door of my new favorite deli. The blinds are closed and the friendly owners are nowhere in sight. The reality of having my favorite pasta dish for lunch was slipping further and further away.
       
       
      What a nightmare! How can this be?
        A local passing by must have noticed my frustration.   "Signorina, è riposo. Tutto è chiuso!"
        Of course! How could I forget about the sacred Italian siesta?
        A siesta or riposo, as most Italians call it, is a time of rest. This time is usually around midday, or the hottest part of the day (very inconvenient if you're craving a bowl of pasta.) No one can really say where the tradition of the siesta originates, but many say it's all about food (no surprises there really).
        For many Italian families the main meal of the day is lunch. This heavy meal in the middle of the day is attributed to the standard Mediterranean diet: A minuscule breakfast of a coffee and pastry , a heavy lunch and an evening meal around 10 o'clock. The logic is that after such a heavy meal one would surely be drowsy and need to rest, no one can work efficiently on a full stomach!
        Post offices, car rentals, supermarkets and even coffee shops (in some smaller towns police stations too) all close their doors for a riposo. Everything comes to a standstill as every Italian goes home to kick of their shoes, enjoy a homemade lunch with family and bask in the Italian sunshine for three to four hours. This is serious business. One would not dare work for 8 hours straight. After their riposo most businesses open again around 4 o'clock and stay open till 7pm. Its the perfect balance between work and play and does wonders for your digestive system!
        "Grazie!" I thanked her for the reminder. The midday sun started to become unbearable. The streets had cleared with only a few tourists braving the midday heat still around. I thought about the strawberries I bought from the market earlier that week. Strawberries for lunch on my shaded balcony and maybe a nap afterwards sounded like my perfect riposo. The pasta will have to wait till 4.

      OK.... here we go again!!!  While this post is a bit premature (we don't take off until around 1:30AM tonight), I am extremely excited so I figured I'd just set up the topic now.  As in previous foodblogs, I may post a bit from time to time while we're there, depending on how good my internet connection is, and how much free time I have... but the bulk of posting will really get started around July 9th - the day after we get home (hopefully without too much jetlag!!!)
