What delectableness is that on your plate? And that kitchen torch! :star_struck:

Confession: I have an old school torch that I have been reluctant to use. With the nicer weather, I may have to conduct an experiment or two outside. I’d be less skittish about trying on the walk or patio where I can’t accidentally set something on fire.

Fresh water eel. Purchased while working in CA. Torch was a kickstarter campaign 4 members of my family got behind. Its a fun toy. The eel was awesome.

Something on my wish list. How do you like your new torch?

Very much. Has a natural hand grip and the flame adjustment is on the top towards the back arm. Good safety feature. Storage bag is sturdy. .

Some blow-torched foods are visually attractive. I would use it on cheese and creamy deserts. Is blow-torched sushi still a trend these days? Score fish and squid slices and use the torch on them. You’ll get a nice pattern.

Def still prepared that way in sushi bars. That’s what I tried with the eel pictured above. Tasted great.
