Hi, I'm Cathy Slobodian, part owner of The Pan Tree and Baskets in the Park. My passions are retail, cooking and travelling. In the store, you will usually find me in the office but, on Saturdays I love to cook up a storm in the demo kitchen. I like to try out new dishes and what better place to prepare them than in The Pan Tree kitchen! Pop in and say hi and sample the creation of the day.
Currently my favorite product from The Pan Tree is the Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker. I'm new to pressure cooking and am amazed at how quickly foods cook in these pots and how fresh everything tastes when it's cooked this way. So far, I've made beef stock, chicken stock, pumpkin soup, squash soup, all kinds of veggies, red wine braised beef shanks, and more. Everything has been delicious and the time for cooking is cut by half or more! I don't know how I lived without this for 35 years! Hope to see you in the store soon.Read more »
