Always use cold milk just out of the fridge and a cold frothing jug (storing the jug in the fridge with the milk works great).

Tips for Melting Chocolate

" Provided you don't cover the bowl and allow condensation to drop in, microwaves can be very effective at melting chocolate as they eliminate the risk of seizing it with liquid. However, chocolate's low melting point means you have to heat it gently to prevent it overheating, which in most microwaves means keeping your eye on it and stopping to stir every 30 seconds. The Breville Quick Touch has a 'Melt Chocolate' setting which calculates the correct power level and time based on how much chocolate you are using so you don't have to stay glued to the microwave. Because chocolate is a poor conductor of heat you will notice a few semi-formed pieces in the bowl at the end of the cycle which can be combined by stirring with a metal spoon".

HESTON’S TIP: Mix in some fresh cheese, parmesan and acidulated butter into the risotto after the cycle has finished for an even creamier result.
Shaved parmesan works particularly well in complementing the flavour of Arborio grains.

Tips for Better Coffee

Did you know that pre-ground coffee beans are stale before you even get them home? Well whole beans have a use-by-date too. Once roasted, coffee beans begin to change chemically. During the first four or five days, the roasted beans are actively releasing a lot of carbon dioxide which makes them unsuitable for brewing until they're approximately one week old. They then start to go stale no matter how they're stored and, soon after, loose their rich, sweet and creamy oils.

So the optimum time to use your beans is between about 10 to 30 days after roasting. Check the ‘roasted on’ date on the bag and if it doesn’t have one don’t buy it as it’s almost certainly not fresh (your best chance is at your local café – the one with the queue out the door!).

So go for a smaller bag of beans, and be sure to check the roasting date! You won't believe how much difference freshly roasted beans make.

Heat lower water content foods like chocolate on much lower power settings. Make sure you select an appropriate power level for the ingredients you’re cooking and adjust the power level when necessary. Some microwaves make adjusting power quite tricky. But, the Breville Quick Touch™ lets you adjust power and time at any stage during the cooking cycle, simply by turning a dial. Sounds so simple yet you’ll be surprised what a difference it makes!

The best way to do it well and repeatedly is to use the scraper beater that comes with this mixer. The scraper beater scrapes the butter from the sides while it mixes to beat it all at the same time. WARNING – this is about 3 times faster than using the metal beater so keep an eye on it the first time you do it. Make a note of how long it takes then next time, set the mixer’s timer and it will turn off when it’s done so you don’t over mix.

If you brew too hot, the bitter flavours over power the tea. Conversely, if you brew too cold you don’t release enough flavour from the leaves. The right balance is all about the right temperature.
