In kitchen, there are mixes of classicals which invariably are success at the table. Fish and white wine, steak with BBQ, caramel and apples... But when you take time to think outside the box we find small kitchen pearls! You need to take risk in life!

The principle is the same as when you heat white sugar in a pan. Fruits sugar browns. In cooking terms, we'll say it caramelize. Not only caramel add aromats to the fruit, but the texture also change. Just like with maple syrup which thicker more and more if you let it heat.

It's all about marking

Fruits cooking mainly target outside coloration and carameization. We want it to be more tender, without being too soft. First step on the grill is to first mark the fruits lihgtly brushed with oil. Then, prick to see if it's the right consistency. If not, lower heat and set on the upper grill, then close the lid until wished results. 5 minutes max should be enough.
