The Food Network recently released their 100 top cooking tips of all time. For real. That’s what it’s called: 100 Greatest Cooking Tips (of all time!)
I’ve been hoarding this list, which, after some quiet meditation and deep interpersonal reflection, I realize is wrong. We all deserve the greatest tips. Especially if they are the greatest tips of all time. Exclamation point.
Numbers 27 and 87 resonate with me – and for those of you who know me, there is no explanation necessary. Exclamation point.
27. Take the time to actually read recipes through before you begin: John Besh – Author of My New Orleans
87. Make sure the handle of your sauté pan is turned away from you so you don’t hit it and knock it off the stove. It happens all the time.: Jonathan Waxman – Barbuto, New York City
Yes, Jonathan, yes it does. Hence the disturbing scar on my left wrist.
