First Episode with Alex Carballo

Welcome to the Kitchens of the future! Henkelman is proud to participate in this new kitchen concept of Chef’s Roll. In the episodes of KOTF we show the concept of vacuum packing, heating in a combi-oven and blast chilling. A collaboration of Chef’s roll with Irinox, Rational and Henkelman.

In this first episode of Kitchens of the future by Chef’s Roll, the popular dish at Carte Blanche Restaurant by Alex Carballo: Duck Mole Tacos, and their famous handmade sourdough bread.

Ingredients and method of prep

Duck mole and chicharrones

Take all the duck, get it in the fat and place it in the Rational I-Combi Pro to the settings with the right recipe. This allows to get the tenderness in the duck. The skin can be pulled of lightly to be placed on racks and dehydrated in the oven about 6 hours and finish with dry heat to get a super crispy bite for the chicharrones. This can be done overnight so it is timesaving and increasing productivity. The duck is vacuum packed in the Henkelman vacuum sealer and blast chilled in the Irinox to zero to keep the quality of the product. The vacuum packed product also allows for efficiency in the walk-in and freezers.

Ingredients and method of prep

Pickled onions


Red onions
Red vinegar
Pepper balls
2 bay leafs
1 yellow pepper


The Henkelman vacuum sealer makes it very simple to pickle things rapidly. Just put all the ingredients in the bag, vacuum seal and within minutes you have pickled onions. The ACS control has a special marinade function for this as standard.

Build the taco’s starting with a avocado cream, duck mole and the duck skin chicharrones. Top it off with pickled onions, cotija cheese and finish with a little Micro Cilantro.

Home baked sourdough bread
Use a vacuum sealer to keep your bread fresh

Home baked sourdough bread

The home baked bread of Carte Blanche Restaurant is baked on a daily basis. They want to achieve a dark crust and moist centre of the bread. The equipment allows to get there much faster and consistently. The ends and pieces of the bread are vacuum sealed and saved for bread crumbs and croutons.
