In our modern, digital world it’s a snap to communicate without leaving the comfort of your chair. Even phone calls are a thing of the past, with texting and email so readily available. But all this ease comes at a price.

Calvetti Culinary Creations participates in the 2017 Research Chefs Association Conference
Consumers today are looking for customization. In a world in which personal choice is the priority, we must rise to the occasion. We’re seeing the evolution of cultural cuisines, like Halal food, and it excites us to learn more. Earlier in March, we headed out to San Juan, to participate in the annual Research Chef’s Association 2017 Conference. Our objectives, as usual, were to meet others in the industry, learn from each other, develop our knowledge of industry trends and to provide our own subject matter expertise in a collaborative forum. We achieved all our goals.
Partnerships & Networking
I love meeting new people, learning about their roles, and get more deeply involved in the food biz. Conferences like RCA and the recent World Travel Catering show in Hamburg, give me and my team these opportunities. At RCA, we met up with some fantastic leaders in the industry. Networking at events offers us fantastic opportunities to collaborate, partner and grow as business leaders.
Brainstorming, Education & Industry
The Research Chefs Association is all about Culinology® “The Blending of the Culinary arts and Science of Foods”. Though a relatively new concept, Culinology aligns so simply, yet brilliantly, with our mission at Calvetti Culinary Creations: it fuses culinary skills (of Chefs) and science (Food Scientists) to produce the most progressive food trends. With our R&D team striving to spearhead such products, it’s in our best interest to participate in the brainstorming – and we did. We learned a great deal about the newest food trends and how we can add value to our customers’ dining experience – through food presentation, healthy choices, unique spices and, of course, fresh food.
Collaboration with the experts
Contemporary trends in the food world demonstrate that Peruvian and Latin themed foods are coming to the forefront. Our R&D team leader, with his expertise in Latin Spices and Ancient Peruvian Peppers, developed an amazing Ropa Vieja dish, which was presented at the conference.The twist was that we made it using real French-Style Sous Vide cooking. Our technology, our R&D and our products demonstrate that we are progressive in our thinking and stay on top of trends and updates. We learn what our customers want and we produce it for them. Because, at the end of the day, your business will only succeed if you have satisfied customers.
Preheat oven to 450º. Place roast in shallow roasting pan and brush with butter or olive oil. Insert meat thermometer and place in oven. Reduce heat to 400° and cook for approximately 10 minutes per pound or until meat thermometer reaches 140-145º for rare and 155-160º for medium. When meat has reached desired internal temperature, remove from oven and place on serving platter. Cover with foil and let meat “rest” for five minutes before carving.
This is a different way of cooking Premium Beef Cowboy Ribeye Steaks. Not necessarily the norm, but very effective method which guarantees that you maximize that medium rare center, you want to see pink from edge to edge, while still getting a nicely charred crust is to first cook the ribeye premium steaks at a very gentle low heat before finishing it over ripping hot heat to sear its surface. It’s better to do it in this order rather than searing first and cooking through after because a pre-warmed rib eye steak will sear much faster, minimizing the amount of overcooked meat under the surface.
Remember to salt the ribeye steaks early and liberally, at least 40 minutes before you plan on grilling. This gives enough time for salt to draw out moisture then get reabsorbed.
Flip regularly particularly during the first cooler phase of cooking. This’ll help the cowboy ribeye steaks come to temperature faster and more evenly without burning. Since a steak this size can take up to half an hour to cook through, try to flip it at least every five minutes.
Use a thermometer to guarantee perfectly cooked steaks. No other method is as reliable. Due top the thickness of these Cowboy Ribeye Premium Steaks, you can expect your final temperature to rise by about 10 degrees as it rests.
Tent with foil and let it rest at least 5-8 minutes in order to allow muscle fibers to cool down and relax, so that the ribeye steaks can retain more juices.
