These chefs have impressed us with there skills so that we say “I’d love to be able to cook that” what I’m trying to do here at Rosies Kitchen is create food that will make you say “I can cook that”, the recipes you see on Rosies Kitchen are made in my kitchen preparing my food for my husband (Paul) and myself to eat. Many of the recipes you see are first attempts no practice sessions just using locally bought ingredients taking advatage of foods on promo and preparing food to suit the seasons. The products that are promoted here are products that I use from knives through to ovens, kitchen kit that I own and use.

The VonShef Vacuum Sealer is perfect for preserving, storing, marinading, and sous vide style cooking.

Exposure to air causes food to lose nutrition and flavour, enabling bacteria, mould and yeast to grow. Freezing produce in non-airtight packaging also causes freezer burn, which taints the produce with dried out oxidised patches.
