Being an expert chef requires a deep understanding of ingredients and the diverse possibilities offered by the cooking methods you choose. If you want to develop your culinary skills, start by mastering and refining these 7 fundamental cooking methods. Steaming is a great technique for bringing out the pure flavors of vegetables and seafood. Fish, such as cod, flounder or seafood, cook quickly and also absorb flavor better when you steam them, especially if you cook it on a bed of fresh herbs, such as rosemary.
Poaching (also known as sous vide) is the perfect option for delicate foods, such as fish, fruit, eggs, or even poultry. Chef Wells loves to poach chicken breasts, which makes them very tender. Poach these fruits in a sugar syrup, Wells says, and season with spices such as cinnamon, vanilla or cardamom. By mastering these 7 cooking methods, you can unlock the flavors of your ingredients and create delicious dishes that will impress your guests.
With practice and experimentation, you can become an expert chef in no time!.
