I covet All-Clad cookware. If it's good enough for The Barefoot Contessa, it's good enough for me! In truth though, it's too pricey for an out-of-pocket purchase. So - a number of years back, I began asking for Williams Sonoma gift cards for birthdays and Christmas - which I stashed in a drawer till I had enough. About three years ago I made my first acquisition - a 10-inch All-Clad skillet. Love it - love it, love it!
My most recent gift card purchase was All-Clad’s d5 Stainless Steel, 4 Qt. Saute Pan, which arrived the other day - to squeals of delight! I determined which pan I wanted after reading this article.
|Isn't it beautiful?|
|Just look at it shine!|
|It came with a splatter screen.|
My christening dish was just a simple saute of:
- Raw shrimp
- Olive Oil
- White wine (lots)
- Fresh chopped garlic
- Toasted pine nuts
- Chiffonade of fresh basil
- Salt and pepper
- A few red pepper flakes
|And toasted baguette to soak up all of the delicious broth!|
I have already begun to explore what my next purchase will be, though I know that it will be a few years down the road. So - friends and family - keep those gift cards coming!!! And - Thank You!
