Often times on my blog I will post about specific products I use. Here is a list with links that will let you become your very own Unmanly Chef.
To take great photos, you need light. Natural light is not always available so use this lamp instead. Your pictures will never be the same.
Glass Tupperware is a must for any successful lunch week. I highly recommend making the investment in these.
The Chimney Grill Starter is essential to any grilling event, if you use a charcoal grill. You don’t have to worry about stacking your charcoal right, you just pour everything in here, light a match and you are good to go.
If you want to make koobideh kabob like a pro, you need flat skewers. These are even fancier than mine, I wish I had these.
After the skewers you’ll need the correct spices!
Le Creuset cookware is at the top of the food chain when it comes to cookware. I only have one and it’s my pride and joy. It is essential for any stew, sauce, you name it. They make a variety of pots and pans, this is the best housewarming gift you could ever give to a chef.
Cast Iron pans are typically handed down from generation to generation (or so I’m told). I bought all of mine second hand, but you can get your very own. These are awesome, you shouldn’t cook with acids in it, but you can basically do everything else with it. I love to start something on the stove and finish it in the oven using these pans. You don’t ever have to worry about damaging them, because they are pretty much indestructible.
America’s Test Kitchen, is THE BEST. I will pretty much dare anyone to say that a Test Kitchen recipe is not always the best way to make something. They test every way to cook a dish and figure out the best way to do. Along the way they provide unrivaled science and facts behind their methodology. I wouldn’t waste my time with any other recipe book. Many of my ideas are inspired by their dishes.
Organic Whey is crucial to making a healthy morning shake. I like this brand and have used them for my shakes.
If you want to become a fancy shmancy food blogger, you need a fancy shmancy camera. My pictures have improved significantly once I changed to this camera. This is great for other things too, not just food photography. This camera takes your photos (any photo) to the next level.
You can’t grill like an Unmanly Chef without the proper tools. You think I want to burn up my pretty hands with some crappy equipment? Get yourself a grilling tool kit so you aren’t shorthanded at your next BBQ.
What’s Persian Ice Cream or any dessert for that matter without a little Rose Water? Get some so you never have to think to yourself, “If I only had Rose Water.”
Impress all your friends with a toffee so unique you can only find it here. Persian Sohan is an incredible addition to your morning coffee or afternoon tea.
Another tasty nougat treat to impress all your friends.
This is my all time favorite treat. It’s perfect slivered almonds coated in some sugar and rose water. Traditionally it’s given out at weddings. Get it!
