Helpful Hints
•
The hand blender can be used in hot liquids. Always use care when
using in hot liquids. To avoid splashing when using the hand blender
in a saucepan, insert the hand blender into the pan first, set the
speed dial to “1”, and then press the Pulse Button. Slowly increase
the speed to your desired setting. Caution: Do not tilt or lift the
Immersion Blender out of the pan while the motor is running, as a
serious burn or injury can occur from food splatter.
•
To puree foods, a certain amount of liquid is needed.
Add cooking liquid, broth, juice, milk, or cream, until desired
consistency is reached.
•
For thorough blending, move blade up and down in mixture until smooth.
•
You will achieve better mixing results if you use deep, tall containers.
•
For easy cleanup, unplug blender and rinse under running water
immediately after using.
•
Place liquid ingredients into the beaker first unless recipe specifically
states otherwise.
•
Before turning the appliance on, immerse the hand blender attachment
into the prepared ingredients, thus ensuring they will not spill over.
•
For greater efficiency, move the appliance in small outward spiraling
circles while mixing, without touching the bottom of the beaker with
the hand blender attachment.
•
The hand blender attachment cannot blend hard or fibrous ingredients unless they are in less than 1/2" pieces, soft ones into 1/2 - 1"
pieces.
•
Some foods require a small amount of liquid to allow them to move
freely around the blades. Soft or wetter foods require less liquid,
while dry ingredients require more liquid. Add the liquid a little at a
time until the mix gains the required consistency.
•
When using the hand blender, ensure the blades are covered to avoid
splashing.
10 Assembly of Nonskid Base/Cover:
The nonskid base also serves as a cover
for your chopping bowls and beaker.
Simply remove the nonskid base from the
bottom of the container and snap into
place on top for storage.

Aioli
Fresh Tomato Salsa
(Salsa Mexicana or Pico De Gallo)
This classic Provençal mayonnaise takes its name from the French
word for its key ingredient, garlic. If you have health concerns about
making mayonnaise from raw eggs, consider this statement from the
American Egg Board: “There have been warnings against consuming
raw or lightly cooked eggs on the grounds that the egg may be
contaminated with Salmonella, a bacteria responsible for a type of
foodborne illness. Healthy people need to remember that there is
a very small risk and treat eggs and other raw animal foods
accordingly. Use only properly refrigerated, clean, sound-shelled,
fresh, grade AA or A eggs. Avoid mixing yolks and whites with the
shell.” Alternatively, start with about 1 1/2 cups of good-quality
bottled mayonnaise and blend into it pureed garlic, Dijon mustard,
and lemon juice.
Makes 2 cups
INGREDIENTS
1 pound or 8 Campari tomatoes (or other very ripe, fragrant tomatoes)
Juice of 1 lime
3 Serrano chiles
1/3 cup loosely packed cilantro leaves
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt or 1/4 teaspoon iodized salt
1/2 of a small white onion, peeled and quartered
1 green onion, cut into 2 inch lengths
METHOD
1
Makes about 2 cups
INGREDIENTS
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1/4 cup chopped basil
2 extra-large raw egg yolks
Salt
Freshly ground white pepper
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 1/2 to 2 cups safflower oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Combine all ingredients into Immersion Chopper Bowl cutting any
of the tomatoes that are too big to fit. Add top and motor. Pulse to
chop as chunky or smooth as you like it. Serve immediately. Salsa
should be eaten within an hour or so or the onions get too strong
and the perfume of the cilantro dissipates.

Chop the cilantro leaves very fine and fold into the sauce. Season
with salt and pepper to taste and set aside.
2
Peel the shrimp, leaving the tails intact. Season lightly with salt and
pepper. In a large skillet, heat the peanut oil. Without crowding the
pan, cook the shrimp, about 1 1/2 minutes on each side. If necessary,
do it in batches.

(or a mixture of both)
Salad:
3 small whole chicken breasts
15 cloves garlic
1/4 cup fresh Italian parsley
salt
freshly ground pepper
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 bunches watercress
1/2 pound mushrooms such as

Chinese Mustard Vinaigrette:
1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons dry Chinese mustard
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons light sesame oil
2 to 3 tablespoons peanut oil

Chicken Salad:
3-pound chicken, cavity filled with celery, carrot, onion, garlic,
bay leaf, thyme, salt and pepper
2 ounces unsalted butter, melted
2 small heads or 1 medium head Napa cabbage
1 cup romaine lettuce, cut into 1/4-inch julienne strips
8 to 10 snow peas, cut into 1/4-inch julienne strips
1 teaspoon black sesame seeds
1
Prepare the vinaigrette: In a bowl or beaker, combine the mustard,
tarragon, vinegar, salt and pepper. Use the immersion blender whisk
attachment to blend in the oil in a slow, steady stream. Taste
carefully and correct the seasonings. Set aside.
2
Preheat a grill or barbeque.
METHOD
3
Cut the chicken breasts in half and set aside.
1
4
Peel the garlic, place it in a saucepan with water to cover and bring
the water to a boil. Drain and slice the garlic thin. Mix the garlic with
the parsley and spread it underneath the skin of the chicken. Season
the chicken with freshly ground pepper and salt, then brush it with
olive oil.
Prepare the vinaigrette: Place all the vinaigrette ingredients in
beaker or tall container; use Immersion Blender to blend until
smooth. Correct the seasonings.
2
Preheat the oven to 425°.
3
Place the chicken on a rack in a roasting pan and baste it with some
of the butter. Roast for about 1 1/2 hours, or until just done. (The
meat near the joints should still be very slightly pink.) Baste every 15
or 20 minutes with the butter and the drippings.
5
Place the chicken, skin side down, on the grill and cook it for about 6
minutes on each side.
6
Wash and dry the watercress and remove the tough stems. In a big
bowl toss the watercress with enough vinaigrette to coat it lightly.
4
Select 4 to 8 nice leaves from the Napa cabbage and reserve them.
Slice the remaining cabbage into 1/4-inch julienne strips.
7
Heat a large skillet and add 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil. Sauté the
mushrooms over high heat about 4 minutes and season them with
salt and pepper.
5
Shred the meat from the breasts and thighs of the chicken.
6
Combine the chicken, cabbage, romaine and snow peas in a bowl
and toss with enough of the vinaigrette to coat the salad nicely.

Pizza Dough
Serves 2 to 4
INGREDIENTS
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt or 1/2 teaspoon iodized salt
1 1/2 teaspoons honey
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup lukewarm water
1 1/2 teaspoons yeast
Main Dishes, Side Dishes,
Sauces & Toppings
METHOD
1
Combine flour and salt in Immersion Chopper Bowl. Set aside.
2
In a small bowl, combine the honey, oil, water and yeast. Stir to
dissolve. Pour all of the yeast mixture into the Chopper Bowl
containing the flour and salt. Attach top and hold the TURBO button
down for 15 seconds. Remove dough ball and knead by hand for a
minute. If it is very sticky, add a bit of flour. Cover with a towel and
let rest for 40 minutes, or cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours.
Knead briefly to deflate and form into 1 or 2 balls. Let it rest for 15
minute to relax dough.
3
Shape as desired, your pizza does not have to be round. Have fun
with it and shape it thick or thin, football shaped or round and neat.
It will be delicious. Top your pizza with your favorite toppings. Bake
in a very hot, 500°F preheated oven for 15 - 20 minutes or until
brown and crispy. Serve hot.
Note: Vary the dough by adding fresh herbs before mixing. Toppings
are endless. I love basil pesto, mozzarella and Parmesan or ricotta with
sliced garlic, parmesan and tomatoes.

Lobster Ravioli
with Fresh Dill Sauce (cont.)
3
On a floured surface, roll the pasta as thin as possible. Brush half of
the dough with the egg wash. Place 30 mounds of the mousse, on
the pasta, 3 inches apart. Cover the mounds with the uneggwashed
pasta sheet and press the dough together around each ravioli. With
a ravioli cutter or a large, sharp knife cut the ravioli apart. Dust a tray
with semolina and place the ravioli on the tray. Refrigerate.
Mousse
1 pound fresh sea scallops, side muscles removed
1 egg
1 cup very cold heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
1 small lobster, cooked
4
At dinnertime, while you make the sauce, bring a large pot of water
to a boil with a little oil.
5
Prepare the sauce: In a saucepan, reduce the wine with 1 sprig of the
dill and the minced shallot until 1/4 cup liquid remains. Add the
cream and reduce it by half. Slowly whisk in the butter, a little at a
time, until all of it is incorporated. Season to taste with salt, pepper
and lemon juice. Set the sauce aside and keep it warm.
6
Chop the remaining dill sprigs into 1/4 inch pieces, reserving 6 small
sprigs for the final garnish. Set aside.
Sauce
2 cups dry white wine
1 bunch fresh dill
2 large shallots, minced
1 cup heavy cream
1 pound unsalted butter
salt
freshly ground white pepper
fresh lemon juice
7
Prepare the vegetables: Heat a sauté pan over medium heat and
add the butter. When it foams, add the julienne strips of vegetables
and sauté them until al dente. Season to taste with salt and pepper
and reserve.
8
Add a little salt to the water, then the ravioli, and cook for 5 to 6
minutes. Cut 1 ravioli open to see if the mousse is done. It should be
barely cooked through as it will continue to cook in the sauce. Drain
the ravioli.
9
Add the ravioli to the sauce with the vegetables and the reserved
lobster meat and the chopped dill and heat just to the boiling point.
INGREDIENTS
1 1/2 pounds fresh pasta dough
1 or 2 eggs, beaten lightly, for egg wash

Divide the ravioli among heated dinner plates. Spoon the sauce over
them and garnish each plate with a small sprig of dill in the center. Serve
immediately.
Recipe courtesy Wolfgang Puck, Recipes from Spago, Chinois, and
Points East and West (Random House, 1986)

Artichoke Mousse
Fresh Basil Pesto
Serves 4
Makes 1 1/2 cups
INGREDIENTS
INGREDIENTS
4 or 5 very large artichokes
2 lemons, halved
4 tablespoons (2 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature
about 2 tablespoons heavy cream
salt
freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoons garlic cloves
2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
2 tablespoons fresh grated Parmesan cheese
Juice from half a lemon
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup packed whole basil leaves
1 cup excellent quality fruity olive oil
METHOD
1
Trim away the leaves from the artichokes to expose the bottoms.
Rub the cut surfaces with lemon to prevent oxidation.
2
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the juice of half a
lemon and the artichoke bottoms, cover with a linen towel or several
sheets of paper towels and cook until the artichokes are tender,
40 to 50 minutes.
3
Remove the artichokes and drain. Remove and discard the fiber from
the center of the chokes.
4
Use the Immersion Blender to purée the artichoke bottoms with the
butter. Pass the purée through a tamis or fine strainer into a heavy
saucepan and heat through. Stir in the cream and correct the
seasonings with salt, pepper and lemon juice.
PRESENTATION
METHOD
1
Combine everything but oil in the Immersion Chopper Bowl.
Pulse to chop. Add 1/2 of the olive oil and puree till smooth adding
more oil as needed. Carefully taste and correct seasoning. Store
airtight for a few days or freeze to preserve color and fresh taste
for up to 1 month..
Note: Having pesto on hand is a wonderful way to add a huge boost of
flavor to whatever you are making. I love it on sandwiches, pasta, pizza,
salad dressings, crostinis, even on crackers and raw veggies. You can use
all the same ingredients listed here, swap out the basil for something
else and create many great pestos. I love sun-dried tomatoes, or ricotta
cheese, black olives, beets, even other herbs like sage.
Recipe courtesy Marian Getz
Serve as a side dish to accompany lamb or chicken or use as a bed
for sliced meats and poultry.
Note: To reheat, place the mousse in a heavy saucepan, add 1
tablespoon each of unsalted butter and heavy cream. Heat slowly,
stirring constantly.
