Everhot Cookery Demonstration

We enjoyed a full-on cookery demonstration with Sally (from Bean Hill farm) on our Showroom Everhot 100i.

We were treated to a delicious breakfast of sausages, tomatoes, mushrooms and Sally’s own home cured bacon all crisped up beautifully under the Everhot grill.

Sally then made some delicious scotch pancakes that were cooked on the top simmer plate of the Everhot and served drizzled with honey.

We then enjoyed homemade meringues cooked in the cooler oven and served with homemade stewed rhubarb laced with Amarillo and spread with double cream. These meringues were absolutely delicious and we are sure that part of that was due to Sally’s culinary skill, part the gentle heat of the cooler Everhot oven and part the amazing free range eggs from Sally’s own hens!

What followed was a continuous stream of homemade dishes. We had freshly baked bread buns, then homemade burgers to go in the buns. We had a cheesy leek and onion quiche with not a hint of a soggy bottom!

A slow cooked leg of lamb with stewed root vegetables and crispy hedgehog potatoes. A rice and vegetable stir fry served with baked salmon and a Korean sauce (that was virtually nuclear in its punch!). We enjoyed baking treats such as chocolate Florentines and a light and fluffy Swiss roll.

The food kept on coming and was jolly tasty!

We thoroughly enjoyed our day as did the customers that came to see and sample the fruits of our labour. Our handsome black Everhot 100i certainly produced the goods.

We shall be scheduling in another Everhot Cookery Demonstration soon, please contact us for future dates and an invitation.

British Lamb Week

Friday 1st September – Thursday 7th September is British Lamb Week.

Try cooking your lamb Low and Slow! Roast lamb in the Simmering Oven or Slow Cooking Oven if your live cooker features one – it will cook there even slower and for longer than in the Simmering Oven. Also, try lamb chops or cutlets grilled on the Boiling Plate using an AGA grill pan or using the oven floor griddle.

Here’s a great slow cooked lamb with vegetables recipe to try.


  • 2kg (4lb 8oz) leg of lamb
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 150-200g cubed pancetta
  • 6 medium red onions, peeled and quartered
  • 4 cloves of garlic, peeled and sliced
  • 900g (2lb) carrots, cut into chunks
  • 1 head of celery, cleaned and cut into 5cm (2inch) lengths
  • 2 heads of fennel, quartered
  • Fresh thyme
  • 6 pieces of fresh rosemary
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 1 bottle of dry white wine

Take the lamb out of the refrigerator about an hour before cooking and season. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and brown the lamb on all sides, remove the lamb and put to one side. Fry the pancetta until browned then add the onions and garlic continue to cook for 3-4 minutes.

Place the pancetta, onions and garlic into the base of the large roasting tin with the lamb on top. Put the carrots, celery and fennel around the lamb and tuck in the Thyme, Rosemary and bay leaves. Pour the bottle of wine into the frying pan and place on the Boiling Plate to heat and deglaze the pan, then pour into the roasting tin. Season the vegetables. Cover the tin with a length of foil, leaving the long sides of the tin free of foil so it easily slides onto the oven runners.

2, 3 and 4 oven AGA: Slide the roasting tin onto the lowest set of runners in the Roasting Oven and cook for 45-50 minutes then transfer to the centre of the Simmering Oven and leave to cook for 5-6 hours, when the lamb should easily come away from the bone.

Serve pieces of the lamb with a selection of the vegetables and some crusty bread.



Egton Show

We had a great start to the day at Egton enjoying all the traditional horse classes going on in the main ring. By 11am sky resembled some sort of solar eclipse and the heavens opened accompanied by thunder and lightning! However, after an hour of down pour and providing shelter in our tent to many folks it finally stopped and the rest of the day was warm if not incredibly muddy. They are a hardy lot up at Egton and a storm wasn’t going to spoil anybody’s fun!

There was the usual amazing array of trade stands, from delicious heather honey sellers and specialist homemade scotch egg producers to agricultural machinery suppliers and vintage steam engines and everything in-between!

We took our show trailer with an Aqua coloured AGA and a cream Everhot 60 on board. We wished they had be working ‘live’ to dry everybody out. We had lots of interest and as usual did well with our textile ranges and cleaning materials.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by!
