He is also there to answer any questions about steaming with our NEW MICROWAVE OVENS and STEAMERS. Chef Ken Megarr is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Hyde Park, New York. He has had extensive experience working in COMMERCIAL KITCHENS, both in hotels and restaurants. Since joining Panasonic’s staff, Ken has worked with a number of restaurants, schools, hospitals and institutions on developing recipes for our NEW MICROWAVE OVENS and STEAMERS. He has tested our new ovens, working with several food products, like steaming vegetables and all types of fish products including clamps, lobsters, mussels, etc. Several different pasta dishes, Mexican recipes, refried beans, burritos and nachos can also be done successfully.
