- If you want to cut a tomato without letting its juices pour out, slice strictly along the pith of the tomato’s surface: there are veins inside that separate the seeds from the tomato’s wall.
- Everyone knows to sprinkle the surface with flour before rolling pie dough. However, if you’re making a sweet dish, you can replace the flour with cocoa powder: it will create a delicate arome and won’t affect the taste.
- To make meatballs tastier, heat up chopped onions using vegetable oil and then grind them together with the meat. Not only will it enhance the taste, but it will eliminate any chance of finding raw onions in cooked meatballs.
- Every chef has his or her own secret to preparing the ideal steak. But one thing they all agree on — the frying pan should be very hot and smoking.
