PRLog - Feb. 22, 2013 - Chris Rawstern, Culinary Advisor for A Harmony of Flavors, published on Yahoo! Voices the article “Learn How To Prepare Your Foods like a Chief, With Five Basic Cutting Techniques”.
This article is part of A Harmony of Flavors mission to publish pertinent articles to help bring people’s attention to important issues or problems and hopefully offer some form of education for them to make the best decisions. This Article describes that when we watch TV these days there are cooking shows of one kind or other everywhere. This is really great, because so much more information is readily available than ever before. Not everyone who cooks on TV is a true professional chef, but many are. They are trained professionally, and certain terms are taught to them. These words become second nature to hear and use, though not all of the general public watching at home always understands what these terms mean. Here are five of the most common terms for ways of cutting foods that should demystify these terms for everyone. Here are 5 terms explained in full.
Try out your skills with these methods to see how they work. When you hear a chef on TV speaking these words you will have a much better grasp of the meanings of the words and how to accomplish these tasks.
