TORONTO, May 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On June 29th PaperChef, the award-winning company that makes quality, affordable parchment for steaming foods to perfection, will celebrate International Parchment Paper Day with the release of 24 creative tips in 24 hours on how best to use parchment paper. Tips will be released on PaperChef's Facebook and Instagram pages as well as a comprehensive release of all tips on the PaperChef's revamped website following the 24 hours of International Parchment Paper Day.
With local food movements on the rise, PaperChef is encouraging all culinary enthusiasts - from professional chefs to home cooks - to explore foods that mirror the "farm to fork movement," offering North Americans viable alternatives to their popular but non-compostable and non-recyclable counterparts, refusing to compromise on quality and integrity by manufacturing items that won't live in landfills for centuries.
Spurred in North America by gourmet artists, the traditional French art of cooking with parchment is a time-honored method of preparing healthier foods, capturing and exchanging flavors and moisture that is often lost through other cooking techniques.
Cooking "en papillote" enhances natural flavors, without the synthetic sprays and high-fat oils. Not only does culinary parchment simplify preparation and clean-up, but it's also a much healthier and environmentally-friendlier alternative to traditional cooking techniques. The French have cooked with parchment for centuries, perfecting taste and texture in every dish, and it has long-served as the secret to preparing wholesome, healthy meals.
Creating a fool-proof way to cook like the culinary world's most talented chefs, PaperChef's line of parchment products include parchment Cooking Bags, Multipurpose Paper, as well as Pre-cut Sheets, Tulip Cups, and Lotus Cups.
