Cooking with Qbag
Cooking en papillote with Qbag
Cooking en papillote is a traditional French method in which you seal the food in a pouch and bake. It is a particularly healthy method where the food essentially steams in the oven in its own juices, retaining a lot of the flavour and requiring very little fat.
The Qbag is the ideal solution for cooking en papillote. It is simple to use, easier for serving and there is no mess to clear up.
The Qbag allows you to cook different dishes at the same time. Meat and vegetarian dishes can be cooked side by side with no risk of cross contamination. You can even prepare the food and Qbags in advance giving you more time with your guests when they arrive.
The Qbag is approx. A4 in size and must be horizontal during cooking. Please allow space after adding your food to fold down the open side, allowing room for the bag to steam itself.
How Qbag works
Qbag expands to create a steamy cooking chamber that maintains moisture and succulence. The unique Qbag window lets you see the food cooking, automatically venting to allow excess steam to escape while cooking. The Qbag window can be easily peeled away to let you stir, add more ingredients and serve.
Four simple steps to using your Qbag
- Place food in Qbag and fold the end over twice approximately 10mm and press down to seal
- Place onto the barbecue or in the oven ensuring the window is facing upwards
- You can peel back the window anytime to stir or add ingredients
- Use a spoon to remove the cooked food from the Qbag and serve
