Nashville Hot Chicken

Nashville hot chicken’s powerful poultry story originated nearly seven decades ago, at Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack. Apparently Thorton Prince was quite the lady’s man. Tiring of his late night escapades, his gal served him up a Sunday breakfast of fried chicken, generously doused in cayenne pepper and other fiery spices. Her revenge backfired – rather than crying out in pain, he loved it. Consequently the inspiration for Nashville Hot Chicken was born. If you’re interested, read the whole story on Prince’s website. Numerous other restaurants and chains, inspired by Prince’s, have put their own twist on this Nashville classic. READ MORE

CVap® Thermoisturization Chart Explained

Food Thermoisturization Chart

Thermoisturization - A Big Word for a Big Technology

Thermoistur-what? “Thermoisturization.” It’s a big word, but not hard to understand. It’s a portmanteau of a word originally created by our late founder, Winston Shelton, to describe the functionality of CVap technology. A true scientist at heart, when the proper word didn’t exist, he created a new one. CVap technology isn’t the only “humidified” commercial kitchen equipment. But it is the only technology that uses the power of controlled water vapor to precisely control food temperature. Therm = heat. Moisturization = water. Put ’em together = Thermoisturization.

Chef Sam gives us a quick basic explanation of the term that puts the power in CVap technology. She does this using the Food Thermoisturization Chart.

A CVap Holding Drawer Is Extremely Versatile

CVap Hold and Serve Drawers are extremely versatile

A holding drawer is a valuable piece of equipment to have in any establishment that serves food. A CVap Holding Drawer and server control food temperature and texture. You have the flexibility to hold moist or crisp, whichever suits your needs. The holding drawers’ design boosts temp recovery, even with frequent openings. They’re ideal for kiosks, QSRs, or any operation where space is limited, but food quality is still a priority.

How is a Holding Drawer Used
  • Prep and line cooks use holding drawers to reduce labor and cook times.
  • Front-of-the-house staff use  drawers for quick access to appetizers and sides, such as tortilla chips and bread.
  • Caterers use holding drawers to hold cooked food for transport.
  • Holding anything you want to keep moist or crisp.
  • A holding drawer can hold soups or beverages. 

For example, high-volume food products such as bread rolls are kept warm for immediate serving. Also, perishable foods such as meats stay above 140°F to prevent spoiling; moreover, guests dine safely. In order to do this, set and adjust temperatures with the electronic differential controls. These controls automatically monitor and adjust the drawer temperature.
