Between the luggage fees, lack of peanut/pretzel snacks, and early 90’s TV monitors, I didn’t think anything could be enjoyable about my flight back from Puerto Rico. But if American Airlines can’t do anything else right, the monthly American Way Magazine remains a trusty source for in-flight entertainment. The November 15 issue featured an article about the Culinary Insitute of America in NYC with a useful list of cooking tips. A few that I’ll be posting on my fridge:
- Keep your knives sharp. Dull knives are more dangerous than sharp knives.
- Salt after, not during, sauteing for better browning (salt draws out water).
- When boiling potatoes, start them in cold water so that the outsides don’t cook faster than the insides.
- When you turn over a piece of meat or fish, set it down in a new spot on the grill or pan. The previous part of grill/pan will not be as hot and will cause the meat/fish to stick.
