Things I Wish I Knew About Cooking

 

When we started the catering business back in the day, I didn’t know much about cooking. In fact, I could make a mean taco salad, but that was about it. Luckily, my husband taught me all kinds of kitchen skills, and I was happy to be the stand-in Sous Chef or Pantry Cook whenever needed. (It’s all a part of the fun of ownership!)

What do you wish you had learned about cooking while growing up? How to poach the perfect egg? How to blanch the vegetables without leaving them mushy? Where’s the fine line between medium rare and still alive?

Lucky for you, I came across this wonderful post, titled 47 Things I Wish My Mom Taught Me About Cooking. I don’t know about you, but my Mom taught me just enough about cooking to not starve, and that’s enough for me.

My favorite cooking tip? From chef Ferrán Adrià – when trying to get the perfect consistency for scrambled eggs, toss them into the blender!
