Chef Louis plans to add steamed fish, vegetables, and seafood to the latest menu of the restaurant, after discovering that diners are keen to eat low-fat, nutrient-preserving food.
Steaming food does not require complex cooking skills, it relies on a commercial steam cooker. It can deliver 30-160 pounds of food in 1 hour and retains moisture and vibrant color.
Louis is more concerned that the commercial food steamer will not have too many production errors and dish retention. It does not require the chef to spend attention on cooking food, such as the heating powers, and the maturity of the food.
Commercial steam cookers can preset the time, firepower, and temperature of food steaming. The rest of the steps are automatically completed by the steam cooker. Louis said: Commercial food steamers meet standard tastes and fast cooking requirements required for takeaway services.
It does not have superb cooking skills and diverse tastes but only relies on health and the original taste of food to capture the favor of diners. That’s why Louis is looking forward to introducing commercial food steamers into restaurant kitchens.
