It doesn’t matter if it is a professional chef in his elegant chef coat or a trainee cook in his chef apron, they all do it. However, we too can learn a thing or two from these chefs to make our lives in our home kitchens much easier.
These hacks include:
Tenderizing beef – Marinade the beef in mayonnaise before cooking in order to make it softer.
Leftover maize – Leftover maize can be used in salads by cutting the grains with a sharp knife.
Separating egg yolks – Using a plastic bottle you can easily separate egg yolks from the whites.
Saving an oversalted soup – Dipping a tablespoon with a sugar cube on it into the soup and repeating it until the oversaltiness of the soup is settled.
Mashed potatoes and milk – Cold milk cause mashed potatoes to become grey in color. The best is to use hot milk to give the potatoes a creamy look.
Preserving the flavor and freshness of a dish – Heat the plate when serving a hot dish and cool them before serving a cold dish to keep the food fresh and flavorful.
Freezing wine – Freeze wine in an ice cube maker to preserve them for using in your cooking.
Keeping vegetables and greens fresh – Keep green vegetables and greens fresh for longer by wrapping them in foil before storing them.
Reheating pizza – Reheating pizza in a saucepan rather than baking it again retains the flavor of the pizza.
Avocados – Keep cut avocados fresh and green by sprinkling apple vinegar in them and storing them with cut onions.
Keeping bread fresh – Keep a piece of cut apple in the bread box to keep bread fresh for longer.
