Squeezing It Out

Wednesday, August 17, 2005

saucing with a  squeeze bottleI know you’ve enviously watched the scene play out on tv… a chef whips out premade sauce in a squeeze bottle to paint on to a pristine white dish. I say we take control and get some of our own squeeze bottles! Who says they’re just for professional chefs?

Squeeze bottles are one of my favorite kitchen tools. I like to buy mine from the art supply section of the University Bookstore. They come in all sorts of sizes and are rarely over a dollar.

Not only are they great for storing homemade dressings and sauce in (Mmmm chocolate sauce too!), a squeeze bottle is indispensible for eating while hovering over a kitchen sink. Drop by drop, your sauce goes right where you want it for that on-coming bite.

laughs isn’t it amazing how much fun you can have with the little things? i picked up a six-pack of squeeze bottles at Costco recently and gave a couple to a friend–you would have thought it was something valuable from his response…

speaking of Costco, is there one around Portland that carries restaraunt/hotel supplies? there’s one in Lynnwood (WA) that’s got all sorts of cool kitchen stuff but it’s a really long drive… :-)

  • Alas- I gave up the Costco membership a couple of years ago. I didn’t realize that some specialized in restaurant supplies!

I really enjoy my squeeze bottles. I first started using them to fill chocolate molds without all the mess.
