A little over 10 years ago, I moved out on my own. I loved all that new-found freedom. Except it meant I had to actually cook for myself, a task I was wholly unprepared for. Uh oh! So I got out the recipes and started to learn to cook. Unfortunately, the only thing I learned is that recipes don’t teach you to cook!.
Sadly, it took quite a while to realize that all that time I’d spent in the kitchen hadn’t actually taught me much at all. Sure, I’d eaten some good food, but I still wasn’t a great home chef by any stretch of the imagination because I never took the time to learn the basics.
Learning the foundational skills of cooking is the most important thing for anyone that wants to cook and eat the healthiest, most delicious food around. You have to understand both the science and the art of cooking to turn out mouthwatering meals every time you step into the kitchen.
I’ve spent the last few months thinking about the things that I wish someone had told me 10 years ago when I first started getting in the kitchen. The most important thing would have been “learn to use the proper tools for the task at hand.” It seems so obvious now, but very few of us actually take the time to do that.
It’s funny, actually. When I bought a drum set, I didn’t start trying to play Led Zeppelin and The Who right off the bat. I took lessons and learned fundamental drumming techniques. I spent a lot of time just learning to coordinate my hands and feet before I ever tried to play a real song.
So why don’t we do that when it comes to cooking? What’s one of the first cooking-related gifts most people receive? Maybe someone was nice enough to give you a cookbook as a house-warming gift or a moving out gift or just as a general “don’t eat out every night” gift.
Cookbooks are great for giving you ideas, but they only teach you to follow directions. If you don’t know what the outcome of each step should be for your tastes and based on your stove, you’ll be disappointed over and over again.
Let’s just say that there would’ve been a lot fewer mediocre meals in my house if I’d known how to flawlessly braise, pan-fry, and poach my way to excellent dinners.
The difference is that a cook follows directions laid out by someone else. A chef uses tools and methods to create meals, come up with recipes, and take advantage of whatever ingredients are on hand.
By spending a few days learning a few essential cooking techniques that form the foundation of everything else you’ll do in the kitchen, you’ll find that you achieve cooking success far more consistently. These same basic cooking tricks allowed me to:
One of the best parts of cooking real food that rocks is that you’ll probably find yourself spending less money on food. Instead of packaged and prepared foods, you’ll be using fresh, real ingredients that typically cost less and taste better. More importantly, you can be sure to avoid potentially harmful Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) by making fresh food in your own kitchen.
I do have to admit, though, there’s been one drawback from learning to cook. Eating out holds a lot less appeal than it did before. Since learning how to do the same things all but the fanciest restaurants do, I find myself thinking “Why did I pay $20 for this? I can do better at home.”
The “Master Your Kitchen” Cooking Course will show you the proper techniques for the most important cooking methods. This course includes 36 instructional videos and hands-on video demonstrations (over 3 hours of videos) so that you can flawlessly execute 12 cooking methods that will enable you to handle any kind of meat or vegetable, right in your own kitchen.
The “Master Your Kitchen” Cooking Course will help you understand:
“Whether you’re in need of a quick weeknight meal or have plenty of time to spare on the weekend creating a masterpiece 4-course dinner for friends and family, the “Master Your Kitchen” Cooking Course will show you every technique you’ll need. For less than the price of a nice dinner out, you can master the same techniques the professionals use to make your favorite restaurant meals.”
While there are plenty of little tips and tricks to help you get perfect meals every time you step in the kitchen, there’s one that is more important than all of them: proper heat control. Cooking essentially comes down to the proper level of heat for the proper amount of time. It really is that simple!
If the only thing you pick up from The “Master Your Kitchen” Cooking Course is the proper heat settings for the 12 cooking methods, your cooking will be twice as good as it is today. In fact, just knowing when to use low, medium, and high heat, and which cooking method is right for what you’re cooking will put you ahead of nearly everyone you know.
