You don’t have to be a professional chef in order to up your cooking game, if you are interested in becoming a more skilled home chef, there are a wide variety of ways to level up your cooking. For a few fun suggestions simply continue reading.
Experiment with using different herbs and spices:
One of the easiest ways to add flavor to your meals without adding a lot of unnecessary fat to your dishes is to get experimental with different herbs and spices. For example, if you love Asian cuisine such as Vietnamese Pho which is a soup based noodle dish, you can give your pho an authentic flavor by adding coriander to your pho. As in Vietnam coriander is usually used to give extra flavor to most dishes. As another example, if you want to create a Mexican dish, it’s well worth using jalapenos in order to provide your dish with effective heat as well as a punch of flavor.
Make notes of the alternations that you make to your recipes:
It’s well worth making digital or physical notes of the alterations that you make to the recipes that you follow. For example if you substitute an ingredient that works really well, it’s well worth making a note of this adjustment that you’ll be able to refer back to in the future. Or as another example if you find that the measurements for a recipe are off and change them, it’s also worth noting this for future reference. For example, if you still use physical cook books or print outs, you may want to place post it notes on different pages, to refer back to or to write in your cook books with pencil which you have the option of erasing at a later date.
Save the grease from your bacon:
As you may have heard bacon grease makes everything taste better and can be saved to fry different foods in. For example, if you have leftover bacon grease from breakfast, you may want to keep this grease to fry potato slices in for a treat. Or if you fry eggs after your bacon, fry them in the same pan so that your fried eggs are infused with delicious bacon grease.
Invest in high quality tools:
One way to instantly take your cooking game to the next level, is to make sure to invest in high quality tools such as non stick stone frypans that will ensure that you don’t burn your food and which will give your food a delicious flavor. Other examples of tools that you may find incredibly handy include a slow cooker, a baking dish from a reputable brand, a juicer and a rice cooker.
In conclusion, you definitely don’t need to be a professional chef in order to up your cooking game, instead if you want to take your cooking to the next level simply follow the steps that are outlined above! As you’ll soon notice that your food tastes a whole lot better than it used to!
