What’s New 03/31/20

Due to recent events, this week marks the last of our traditional recipe releases until our team can return to the office. Similar to many of you, the team at Brava is staying safe by sheltering in place and working from home. In the meantime we’ll still be sharing custom cooks, recipe tips, cooking tutorial videos, and more.

Today we’re releasing a new Recipe and a new Multi-Step Recipe for you. Both are flavorful and fun to make, which is just what we need right now. If you’ve been seeing all your friends sharing their homemade bread on social media and want to show off your own cooking projects, we have you covered! This week’s recipes strike a balance between ease and sophistication, and you’ll probably want to snap some photos to document them.

First, we’re sharing our recipe for Thai-Inspired Chicken Satay Skewers. Next, Chef George puts a spin on his mother’s recipe for a classic Venezuelan dish, Pan de Jamón.

New Recipe:

  • Thai-Style Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce: Thai satay are grilled meat skewers traditionally served at street markets throughout Southeast Asia. This is our take on the classic — no takeout required. A quick marinade gives chicken breasts or thighs a bold flavor, with a nice zing from fresh lime. Plus? The skewers cook in only 10 minutes in Brava. We serve this dish with a peanut dipping sauce, which you’ll want to use on everything, from a dip for veggies to zucchini noodles.

New Multi-Step Recipe:

  • Venezuelan Ham Rollup (Pan de Jamón): Sweet and salty and absolutely delicious, this Venezuelan treat is traditionally served during Christmas, but it’s fun to make any time of year. Chef George updated and simplified the recipe by using store-bought puff pastry instead of making a yeasted bread dough from scratch. If you don’t have all of the ingredients listed in this recipe, a simple combination of ham and cheese works well with puff pastry instead.


  • Adjusted the doneness temperature for all Pork items:
    • Adjusted the “Pink” doneness temperature to 135F.
    • Added a “Medium” doneness temperature option for 145F.
    • Adjusted the “Well Done” doneness temperature to 160F.


  • Adjusted the text for some recipes to more clearly state what to place on the tray.
  • Fixed various bolding and text inconsistencies in recipe instructions.
  • Fixed various recipes not appearing when using the correct filter in Search.
  • Fixed minor issues with recipe placement in the Cook tile.

  • Added Shelf Detection to various Recipes.
