Chef’s Kitchen Tips
‘Tis The Season
To season your food! Salt and pepper are the two most important ingredients in your kitchen, don’t forget to use them. Many foods (e.g.- steak, eggs, pasta) will never taste the same if you season after cooking.
I prefer a nice coarse kosher salt, like Diamond Crystal (crystalline) or Morton’s (flaky). Buy a grinder for your black pepper, as pre-ground pepper loses it’s flavor quickly.
The Herb Saver
Fresh herbs last longer when kept dry. Wrap your herbs in a clean towel before bagging and placing in the fridge. Can extend the life of herbs like parsley, mint, rosemary or cilantro for days or weeks.
