TECHNOLOGY

Unleash

YOUR INNER CHEF Built on an appetite for innovation, for the past 100 years KitchenAid has developed appliances that provide makers with new ways to explore and experiment. This year, the brand has introduced new countertop ovens that give makers the same possibilities as a full size oven with quality results in a convenient countertop size. The new Digital Countertop Oven and the Dual Convection Countertop Oven each can fit a 9x13 inch baking pan, allowing for more space to create and cook. “Consumers are evolving to use their countertop ovens for more than toasting,” said Nikki Lockett, Marketing Leader for KitchenAid Small Appliances. “Our new countertop ovens give makers the ability to bake, broil, grill, toast and so much more. We also moved the control panel to the bottom of the oven so that we could create greater capacity in the heating chamber. These ovens were designed to give makers even more possibilities in the kitchen.” The new countertop ovens have the capacity to fit two whole chickens or six slices of toast, offer unique preset functions and include easy-to-read digital displays that give you at-aglance updates on cooking progress. Other innovative features include more capacity vs a leading competitor and the smallest footprint that fits a 9x13 inch baking pan compared to leading countertop oven brands. Makers can unleash their inner chef with nine preset cooking functions including Bake, Broil, Toast, Warm, Reheat, Bagel, Pizza, Cookies, Roast and Frozen.

8

Unlock possibilities with the power of Dual Convection. The built-in temperature probe allows you to have more control during the cooking process, giving makers the perfect results time after time. Twelve unique preset functions such as Dough Proofing and Frozen Cooking create endless possibilities in the kitchen. The new KitchenAid countertop oven line represents the continuous innovation and stunning design that comes with 100 years of empowering creativity in the kitchen. Learn more at kitchenaid.ca. ◆

DIRECTIONS STEP ONE: Preheat oven to 350°F. If you have 2 ovens, use both. If you have one oven you will need to switch the trays halfway through the cooking time. STEP T WO: In a medium size bowl, mix together (I use a whisk), the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt, set aside. STEP THREE: With the whisk attachment of your electric mixer, cream the butter, add oil, and add sugars. Make sure you scrape down the sides so that everything mixes together. STEP FOUR: Add eggs one at a time, add vanilla.

MAKES: Approx 40 Biscotti

INGREDIENTS • 6 tbsp unsalted butter (2/3 stick), softened to a little cooler than room temperature • 6 tbsp vegetable oil • 1/2 cup sugar • 1/2 cup brown sugar • 3 eggs • 2 tsp vanilla extract

STEP FIVE: Switch to the paddle on your electric mixer. Add in 2 or 3 stages the flour mixture to the butter mixture, slowly. Do not over-mix.

• 2 1/2 cups flour

STEP SIX: Add nuts and chocolate, Do not over-mix.

• 1 3/4 tsp baking powder

STEP SEVEN: Split the dough in half. Form 2 logs across the length of 2 baking sheets (1 log on each sheet), you can do this on the diagonal also. STEP EIGHT: Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven (leave the oven on). Let cool on the baking sheets for about 15-20 minutes. Transfer the logs carefully to a cutting board. Slice, on a diagonal, 1/2-3/4 slices. Place each piece back on the baking sheet lying on their sides. Dry the biscotti out in the oven for 15 minutes (less time if you like then chewier). ◆

• 1/2 cup cocoa (preferably Valrhona or another premium cocoa)

• 1/4 tsp salt • 1 cup chocolate chunks, I like milk chocolate, good quality • 3/4 cup nuts, I like pecans or toasted and skinned hazelnuts, pecans are good too!

THE FRAME & THE SERIF FROM SAMSUNG

Samsung Canada continues to transform Canadian living rooms with its incredible lifestyle TVs, The Frame and The Serif. They combine innovative design that complements any home’s décor with QLED 4K picture quality and Smart TV features to provide consumers with a seamless and intuitive TV experience. Offering a sleek, stunning design, The Frame was curated with an artful approach and designed in collaboration with world-renowned designer, Yves Behar. Together with international art consultant, Elise Van Middelem, Behar helped bring to life an innovative TV designed to appear just as a picture frame would on a wall. The Serif also allows you to turn your TV into a digital canvas with Ambient Mode, allowing you to show images, information like news headlines, weather or the time, your own photos or to set a background image so that your TV blends in against your wall. The Serif features two exclusive patterns from palettes by the Bouroullec brothers – two notable industrial designers based in Paris.

Brothers, Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, notable industrial designers based in Paris.

Canadians now have more ways than ever before to customize the look and feel of their room with The Frame and The Serif. When not in use, showcase your favourite pieces of art and photography with Art Mode available on The Frame. With the Samsung Art Store2, Canadians can access an ever-growing and diverse library of artwork from some of the most prominent museums, galleries and artists around the world. The Frame and The Serif both blend seamlessly into any living space, without unsightly cables or wires. The addition of interchangeable frames3 in walnut, oak, white or black finishes for The Frame allows for customization and coordination with other pieces of art or décor in your home. The contemporary design of The Serif features a sleek base and signature I-shaped profile, creating a sharp and sophisticated presence that elevates any room’s design aesthetic.

When it’s switched on, The Frame and The Serif features a crisp and clear 4K QLED display with HDR10+ technology, so users can view the content just the way the director intended. The Frame and The Serif also comes equipped with Bixby, so owners can use voice commands to bring up their favourite shows and control compatible smart lights, soundbars, cameras, door locks and more via the Samsung SmartThings dashboard. ◆ samsung.com
