My family knows a thing or two about cooking. My grandparents owned a restaurant downtown for years and my dad grew up in the kitchen helping out. I credit my dad for teaching me many cooking tips like how to cook stove top rice and measurements with touch. But I admit that I didn’t know much about kitchen wares when I had first started playing around in the kitchen. I do know now, with experience, that some pieces are very much worth the investment. My mom had gifted me an All-Clad roasting pan 20 years ago and it’s still in incredible shape. It’s reliable and is very much a keeper for life and I’ve been adding pieces to my personal collection ever since.
All-Clad cookware has been a fixture in kitchens of great chefs, in fine restaurants, cooking schools and in households across the country for over 40 years. Established by John Ulam, a brilliant metallurgist in 1971, the collection of professional quality bonded cookware is handcrafted in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania.
Some of the most highly acclaimed kitchens around the world use All-Clad cookware including Chef Thomas Keller in his Michelin-starred restaurants like The French Laundry and Per Se. “All-Clad embraces the same values that we do, those of integrity, quality and evolution,” said Chef Thomas Keller.
This Fall, Chef Thomas Keller and All-Clad will release a limited edition innovative All-Clad TK collection for the dedicated home chef.
“A great example of our innovation is the universal lid, which is a symbol for all that I appreciate about good design: practicality, simplicity, exceptional performance and sustainability,” said Chef Keller. “The universal lid fits a number of different-sized pieces of cookware, so instead of five lids for five pots, you may only need two lids. This cuts back significantly on storage, which is always a consideration for restaurant and home kitchens alike.”
The fifteen items in the All-Clad TK line were personally developed by Chef Keller using precise combinations of copper, stainless steel and aluminum. This hand-crafted collection features a custom shape and metal technology in each piece designed for specific functions from sauteing, braising, steaming and making sauces.
100 limited edition All-Clad TK sets will be available in Canada starting this September.
