THREE STEPS TO COOK­ING LIKE A PRO

Men's Health (Malaysia) - - Food & Nutrition -

Keep Your Am­bi­tions in Check “Cook­ing is some­thing you’re ei­ther into or you’re not – there’s no may of mak­ing your­self like it. I’d def­i­nitely rec­om­mend new­bies to start with some­thing sim­ple like main cour­ses. Don’t at­tempt pas­tries be­cause it’s a lot more pre­cise and, if you get it wrong, you re­ally get it wrong. Your souf­flé will be on the floor rather than nice and high.” Stick to Sim­ple Steps “If you’ve never cooked be­fore, try mak­ing meals that are sim­ple and re­quire a few in­gre­di­ents. Stick to just grilling things with olive oil. There’s noth­ing bet­ter than grilling fish with some fen­nel and lemon. Keep it sim­ple!” Let Recipes Evolve “A lady once told me, ‘Even if you copy me, it won’t be the same. Ev­ery hand is dif­fer­ent.’ You can write down the recipes and fol­low the steps, but the flavour won’t be the same. So don’t try to repli­cate tastes and work with ele­ments that peo­ple are al­ready fa­mil­iar with. For ex­am­ple, most Malay cur­ries have co­conut milk – keep that, but add your own twist to it.”
