13 Culinary Tips to Make the Cooking Process More Enjoyable

  1. To reduce the chances of tearing up when cutting onions, place them in the freezer for 10 minutes beforehand.
  2. Place a wooden spoon on the pot to keep it from boiling over.
  3. If radishes, celery, or carrots aren’t crispy enough, dip them in icy water along with a raw potato half — it will rejuvenate the veggies.
  4. Do not rush to pour out flat sparkling wine. Instead, throw a couple of raisins into the bottle — it will instantly put the fizz back in the bubbly.
  5. Salt will not harden if you add a little rice to the salt shaker.
  6. What do you do if the dough for your homemade dumplings turned out tough? Add a glass of cold water when boiling.
  7. To make hard-boiled eggs easy to shell, drop lemon slice or a pinch of soda into the water.
  8. You can make a delicious treat for kids using thick yogurt. Put the product in a confectionery syringe, squeeze small amounts onto parchment, and pop in the freezer for an hour. Finger-licking good!
  9. To keep cheese fresh longer, wrap it in paper instead of cling film.
  10. How about another great piece of advice for storing cheese? We all know that it tends to dry out quickly. You can prevent it by greasing the cut part of it with butter. This method works great on hard cheeses with a wax coating.
  11. Use a straw to easily remove strawberry stems.
  12. In sweet pastries, feel free to replace an egg with a ripe banana half.
  13. You can save oversalted soup! Try adding raw potato slices so that they absorb the excess salt. Let them simmer for 10 minutes and then remove them from the pot. If the dish is still too salty, add a teaspoon of sugar.

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
