Other misc tips and tricks

  • To keep served food warm, heat your plates in a 200º oven before serving
  • For a nice brown cheese sandwich use mayonnaise rather than butter
  • Dress the SIDE of your salad bowl to more evenly coat your salad leaves
  • Put a metal bowl over top of your cooking grilled sandwich with a drop of water to melt the cheese and keep the bread soft.
  • To reheat fries bring up to room temperature, put on wire rack, spray with oil, bake at 400º until browned
  • Don’t start your hot pasta water with hot water from the tap.  This includes MUCH more dissolved solids than cold water.
  • While on the subject, don’t start your pasta in non-boiling water.  It changes the texture and can make it gummy
  • If you run out of butter, just use canola oil in a 1 to 1 ratio.  The fats in the oil behaves exactly like melted butter.
  • Use old toilet paper rolls to scoop up the congealed grease from your pan.  These can then be used as fire starter logs.
