As the warm aromas of pumpkin spice and fresh fallen leaves fill the air, there are few things better than cozy nights at home with loved ones enjoyed with cold-weather comfort foods. So, when the temperature drops, I head straight to the kitchen to make a hearty, warm meal. From simmering soups to luscious lasagna, I’ve got a delicious mix of recipes for your fall festivities!
One of my all-time favorite autumn dishes is also a year-round favorite. Whether you’re feeling under the weather or you just need a comforting pick-me-up, nothing says fall like a soothing bowlful of chicken soup. I opt for a delicious spin on this cold-weather classic with a Lemon Chicken and Rice Soup recipe. The citrus flavor from the lemon provides the perfect complement to the chicken, resulting in a fresh, flavorful soup that’s as easy to make as it is tasty! For the best results, I turn to the Thermador 48” Pro Grand Steam Range. With its unique five-point design, the Star® Burner directs heat evenly from the center of the pan to its edges, allowing for a faster boiling time. Plus, the ExtraLow® feature provides the widest variety of temperature control of any simmer system. Your soup will be bubbled to perfection!
For the quintessential comfort meal, I look no further than lasagna. It’s hearty, soul-warming and filling – and makes for the perfect wow-factor dish. With a savory mix of ground beef, red bell peppers, mozzarella and ricotta cheese, and layered with a tasty tomato sauce, this is one recipe that will make you question dining out! While your soup is simmering on the Thermador 48” Pro Grand Steam Range, the lasagna can be baked in the oven below. With nine advanced conventional cooking modes, your pasta will turn out perfectly baked with a golden, melted, cheesy top. How’s that for the perfect night in?
It wouldn’t be a cozy night in without delicious sips. To top off the evening (or to get it started!), I reach for a special bottle of wine. With the Thermador 24” Built-In Wine Preservation Column, I never have to worry about whether my bottles are being kept at the perfect temperature. From Chardonnay to Rosé, the wine column stores all my favorite wines at the optimum temperature. Featuring UV glass and equipped with three separate zones for precise temperature control, every exceptional sip is sure to be preserved (98 times over!).
