So, you’ve bought your cream charger and whipped cream dispenser – but what now?
There is nothing worse than getting a brand new toy and then finding out that you really aren’t sure what to do with it! The index of recipes contains all sorts of recipes and foodie knowledge but its prime directive is to educate users of cream chargers in how to get the most luscious and varied creamy toppings out of them.
If you are unsure what a whipped cream dispenser is then try our intro to cream chargers
Of course indexofrecipes.com does not want to appear to be a one trick pony so there will be plenty of other recipe ideas – but we’ll keep our main focus on getting the most value out of whipped cream dispensers. It seems such a waste when they are simply used for making whipped cream – in much the same way it’s a waste when people only use a microwave for something as simple as heating up baked beans – after there is a world of sidom and technology that has gone into the development of these hi-tech kitchen gadgets.
With cream chargers as with all kitchen devices and ingredients it is really all a matter of science – if you understand the scientific aspects of what it is that you are doing then you can add the artistic interpretation on top of that. For most of us then the art of cooking recipes is not enough without a firm background knowledge.
As an addition to that I’d like to add that the recipes you find here should really just be considered as a jumping off point for exploration, rather than the final destination. It only takes a few tweaks to really make a dish you own or claim the bragging rights to a new recipe. Many of the ideas that you find on indexofrecipes.com are really just our slightly colourful interpretations of some standard ideas.
I think I’ve found a like minded soul – or rather a pair of them that are compiling a super, all-encompassing recipe section to their store they’ve even asked me to contribute so if I’m not here then I’ll be over at creamchargers.caliandjody.com where they share my vision, but also have a bit of financial clout to back it up. Unlike me with my simple hobbiest ways. I’m thinking that I’ll start by giving them 10 different ideas for flavoured whipped cream – that should give their customers a bit of inspiration for the getting the most out of their cream chargers and dispensers – the brief was actually to “inspire” their customers to do more than simply make cream with their new chargers. This happens to be right up my street because colourful cuisine with a modernist twist is exactly what I do.
Christmas Pudding, a tradition in Merry Old England
“The Pudding…Oh The Pudding” Christmas Pudding, a tradition in Merry Old England, gained popularity and prestige thanks to Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol”. Prior to the Cratchett family’s exultations over the “pudding bubbling away in the copper” as the “finest pudding in all England”, Christmas Pudding was a finale for Christmas feast. If you are feeling really adventurous then have the Christmas pudding at the start of the meal – that is how it was meant to be served. And do it justice with a bit of whipped cream and brandy – the flame is all part of the fun!
Cooking from Culture to Culture
Cooks soon notice that cooking varies from culture to culture. Far Eastern cooking is different from Midwest American cooking.
