Cheesy Crêpes with Prosciutto, Sun-dried Tomatoes, and Olives

Serves: 6
Prep Time: 15 minutes (plus 30 minutes for resting)
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Make-Ahead: Crêpe batter can be made up to 1 day ahead, covered and refrigerated.

1 1/4 cups whole milk
1 cup all purpose flour, sifted
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 large eggs
3 tsp. sugar
Pinch of salt
3 tbs. unsalted butter
14 oz. fontina cheese, grated
2 oz. fresh ricotta cheese
3/4 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained of excess oil and thinly sliced 1/2 cup kalamata olives, pitted and sliced
6 thin prosciutto slices, torn into bite-size pieces


  1. In a blender, blend milk, flour, cream, eggs, sugar, and salt until smooth. Transfer batter to a bowl, then cover and set aside for 30 minutes. This allows time for flour to absorb all of the liquid.
  2. Preheat oven to 200°F.
  3. Using a Curtis Stone 6” Frypan, melt butter over low heat, then remove from heat.
  4. Heat a Curtis Stone 8” Frypan over medium-low heat. Lightly brush some melted butter over pan. Pour about 3 tbs. of batter into center of pan and swirl to coat the bottom thinly. Cook until edge of the crêpe is light brown, about 1 1/2 minutes. Loosen edges gently with a spatula. Carefully turn crêpe over.
  5. Sprinkle some of fontina cheese, then ricotta cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, olives, and prosciutto over half of crêpe. Cook until bottom begins to brown in spots and fontina cheese melts, about 1 minute.
  6. Fold uncovered side of crêpe over the filling, then fold crêpe in half again, forming a triangle. Transfer to baking sheet and tent with foil. Place in oven to keep warm while you make more crêpes. Repeat to form 12 crêpes total, brushing pan with butter as needed.

Celery Root Soup

Serves: 6
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Make-Ahead: The soup can be made up to 1 day ahead, cooled, covered, and refrigerated. Rewarm soup, covered, over medium-low heat, adding water or milk to thin soup to desired consistency, as needed.

1 garlic clove, coarsely chopped
2 celery roots, peeled, cut into medium dice
7 cups chicken stock or low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tbs. chopped fresh chives
Extra-virgin olive oil, for garnish

Creamy Polenta with Goat Cheese and Parmesan

Serves: 4
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour and 15 minutes
Make-Ahead: The polenta is best served as soon as it is made, since it will continue to thicken after it is made and may become too thick. If the polenta becomes thicker than desired, stir in more hot stock or milk to thin it to the desired consistency.

5 cups chicken broth or stock
2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 cups whole milk
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 shallot, cut in half
1 rosemary sprig
1 thyme sprig
1 1/2 cups polenta (coarse cornmeal)
1/2 cup coarsely crumbled soft goat cheese
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbs. (1/4 stick) unsalted butter
2 tbs. thinly sliced fresh flat-leaf parsley


  1. In a Curtis Stone 3qt Saucepan, heat the chicken stock over medium heat just until hot. Remove from heat and cover with lid to keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, in Curtis Stone 2qt Saucepan, combine cream, milk, garlic, shallot, rosemary, and thyme, and bring to a gentle simmer over medium-high heat. Strain cream mixture into a Curtis Stone 5qt Stockpot.
  3. Slowly whisk polenta into the hot cream mixture, and then whisk in warm chicken stock. Whisk polenta over medium heat until it boils. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover with lid, and simmer gently, stirring often 1 hour, or until polenta resembles the consistency of mashed potatoes and no longer has a starchy taste.
  4. Stir in goat cheese, Parmesan, butter, and parsley. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

Turkey Meatballs with Marinara Sauce

Serves: 8
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes

Marinara Sauce:
3 tbs. olive oil
1/2 cup finely chopped shallots
6 large garlic cloves, finely chopped
4 large sprigs of fresh thyme
1 bay leaf
1/2 cup dry white wine
Two 28 oz. cans whole tomatoes, undrained
1/2 cup loosely packed torn fresh basil leaves
1 1/2 cups cubed (3/4-in.) crustless Italian or French bread (about 2 oz.) 2/3 cup reduced-fat (2%) milk
1/2 cup finely chopped shallots
5 large garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/3 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 tbs. chopped fresh thyme
2 tbs. Dijon mustard
2 tsp. kosher salt
1 1/2 tsp. sweet paprika
1 large egg
2 lbs. ground turkey
1/4 cup olive oil
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese, for serving

To make the marinara sauce:

  1. Heat a Curtis Stone 5qt Stockpot over medium heat. Add olive oil, then add shallots and garlic and cook, stirring often 2 minutes, or until tender but not browned. Add thyme, bay leaf, and wine, then add tomatoes. Crush them with a potato masher to break them up.
  2. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium low and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 25 minutes, or until liquid has reduced slightly and flavors are well blended. Discard thyme stems and bay leaf. Stir in basil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
    To make the meatballs:
  3. In a large bowl, combine bread cubes and milk. Set aside for 5 minutes, or until bread is soggy. Using your hands, mash bread mixture. Add shallots, garlic, parsley, thyme, mustard, salt, paprika, and egg and mix until blended. Add turkey and, using your hands, gently mix until blended. The mixture will be soft, which will ensure tender meatballs. Form mixture into 8 large meatballs.
  4. Heat a Curtis Stone 11” Frypan over medium heat. Add olive oil. Working in batches, add meatballs and cook, turning occasionally, for 12 minutes per batch, or until browned all over. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to plate.
  5. When the sauce is ready, add meatballs and simmer for 5 minutes more, or until meatballs are cooked through, with no sign of pink.
  6. Spoon meatballs and tomato sauce into serving bowls. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve hot.

  • Do not pour cold water onto hot cookware, as this may cause warping or oil to splatter and may affect the non-stick performance of your non-stick cookware.
  • After each use, wash the inner and outer coatings of your pan with warm water, mild liquid detergent and a sponge. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
  • Do not use metal scouring pads, abrasive wire wool or harsh scouring powder. This can scratch both the interior and exterior coating and is not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
  • To remove stubborn stains, partially fill the cookware with three parts water to one part detergent or vinegar and bring to the boil. Turn off the heat source and set aside for a period to cool and allow these stains or deposits to soften; then wash in mild dishwashing detergent and warm water using a nonabrasive mesh pad or a soft brush.
  • To help preserve the finish of the pan hand washing is recommended. The pans are dishwasher safe, however dishwasher may cause discoloration to the base, this in no way affects the performance of the pan. Discoloration is not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
  • Always dry cookware thoroughly after washing, paying particular attention to the rims, handles, rivets and other small spaces where water might collect.


  • This cookware is oven safe to 450°F. Do not use above this temperature setting. Using above the temperature setting can cause discoloration and can permanently damage the cookware.
  • In a convection oven, adjust the temperature in line with the oven manufacturer’s guidelines.
  • Do not place empty cookware in a hot oven.
  • Always use oven mitts when removing cookware from the oven.
  • This cookware can be used under a broiler. Ensure that the cookware and handle is at least 2” away from the heat source. Do not exceed the oven safe temperature when using cookware under the broiler / grill.


  • The glass lid is oven safe up to 400°F.

  • We recommend not to cook on high heat as this may damage the non-stick coating, burn food, produce stains or damage the base of the product.
  • Always choose a suitable sized flame or ring for the base of the pan. When using a gas cooktop, do not allow the flames to rise up along the sides of the pan. This could damage the cookware, coating and handles. Turn down the flame to prevent this from happening. If the flames do rise up along the sides of the pan, the stainless steel handles will get hot.
  • Never heat fat or oil to the extent that it smokes, burns or turns black.
  • After prolonged usage some minor discoloration of the non-stick coating may occur. This is quite normal and will not affect the non-stick properties of your cookware.

  • Do not use a knife or any pointed tip utensils to cut or pierce food directly on the non-stick surface as this could cause permanent damage and is not covered under the manufacturer’s warranty. Do not gouge the non-stick surface.
  • Always clean & dry the base of your cookware before cooking, especially if you use it on a ceramic or halogen cooktop otherwise the pan may stick to the hob.
  • Avoid dragging or sliding cookware over the cooktop surface as this may damage your cook top surface. Take special care when you’re using a glass cooktop or any other surface that may scratch easily. We do not take responsibility for scratched cooktops.
  • Depending on your cooktop type, the base of your pan may become marked or scratched. This is normal. Centre your pan over the heat source (this prevents damage to the handle and exterior coating). Small pans may need careful placement on the support legs of gas cooktops.
  • To protect your non-stick coating, do not stack or nest cookware inside each other without a protective sheath (ie. tea towel) in between.


  • Cookware should never be used in a microwave.
  • Ensure cookware is stable on the cooktop surface to prevent tipping.
  • Never leave cookware unattended on a hot cooktop. Never leave food cooking unattended.
  • Continuous high heat or over heating may shorten the life of cookware, cause discoloration and damage both in the interior and exterior surface.
