- Do you think you are a good cook? Let’s go over this and you might find out if you are.
I decided to write on this topic because I was recently enlightened to what I didn’t know.
Growing up staying beside my mum which happens to be a very good cook, I learnt naturally basic cooking skills which I thought everybody must definitely know.
However, I realise this to be very untrue.
This, I was told, through personal research is because some people didn’t grow up with a mum; some were raised by single parents.
I have a friend who told me they were never allowed to cook even as girls; only their mum cooks for their dad and family.
Then, I realised, the things I have got so freely wasn’t so common after all. So, I have decided to put some out for you guys to see.
10 kitchen wisdom tips you need to be a good cook.
According to the name, spices are meant to improve the taste and aroma of the food and not overcome the food’s major essence. So, keep it simple with spices.
4. UNDERSTANDING SPICE MIXING
Spice to spice interaction and spice-food interaction. For example, some spice have strong aroma and tend to over-ride all other ingredients
we have thyme and rose Mary in that section.
You should also know which spice will go for which food and which spice blends well.
For example, cumin goes with coriander while ginger and garlic are also very good together.
6. ADDITION OF WATER
Adding water to food which later overwhelms the food and make it unpresentable and tasteless is another major problem.
Every food at one stage or in its entire preparation needs addition of liquid, water most times.
It’s not a good idea and its dangerous because of fire outbreaks. It’s either you stay close or have a sous chef on ground to take over the cooking.
Dont ever add what you don’t know much about into your main course dish. You can separate a small portion out to do a controlled test.
This is so you don’t have to throw away the whole pot and start again. To learn more about developing professional skills, visit Chef’s cooking skills
