Spring has officially sprung, and it’s the perfect time to open your home to friends and family for a celebratory meal using this season’s bounty of fresh herbs, produce, and vegetables.
From roasted ham to vegetables and beyond, the Thermador Steam Convection Oven is ideal for all of your meals during spring entertaining. Steam convection cooking is unrivaled when it comes to taste and texture, keeping food moist in the inside and perfectly finished on the outside. This method also keeps more vitamins and nutrients in the food. For a crowd-pleasing main course that your friends and family are guaranteed to enjoy, try our recipe for roasted lamb served with a fresh mint pesto and spring peas.
Since nothing pairs with a delicious meal like a great glass of wine, stock up with a something-for-everyone variety to keep on hand for all your spring festivities. Keep your whites and reds chilled to perfection with Thermador Wine Preservation Columns, featuring independent temperature zones. And in case you’re in need of a little inspiration, here a few suggested pairing options from our team:
Lamb Roast with Cabernet Sauvignon
Ham with Dry Rosé Wine
Roast Chicken with Chardonnay
Fresh Green Salad with Assyrtiko or Sauvignon Blanc
Lemon Tart or Meringue Pie with Muscat
As a precursor to the main course, let guests mingle over an elegant hors d’oeuvres spread of fresh fruit, crab cakes, and a spring favorite: Deviled Eggs. All pair flawlessly with a crisp Rosé or Brut champagne.
And because nothing says spring like a bouquet of fresh flowers, pick up a few extra blooms to create a festive centerpiece representative of the holiday. Stick with brights, pastels and colorful arrangements like lilies, tulips and hydrangeas.
