Ever wonder how professional chef cook like the most beautiful meals in such a short time?
Well, just like with any profession, they develop their own tricks and tools to make things more efficient.
With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought it would be handy to highlight some of these tricks. Professional Chef responses courtesy of Quora.
Quality ingredients trump everything
The pros can really taste when the raw stuff is bad, but so can the amateurs. So get the good stuff.
Taste as much as possible
Even just tasting the raw ingredients. (the edible ones) No serious, taste the dish like 10 times, the more you taste the more you can improve the flavor.
Seasoning = Flavor
Don't be afraid of adding extra spices. Extra salt. Extra sugar. Or even extra fat. Cooking is an experiment, and chefs know the importance of a well-flavored meal.
Clean as you go
Chefs suggest that a clean station means a clean mind. So as you are waiting for the turkey, wash a pan or two. It'll help with your cooking flow! (this is my favorite tip! I love a clean kitchen!)
