Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

Kitchen Quick Tips

kitchen quick tips

Make it easy to remove spices and herbs like bay leaves, whole peppercorns and cloves from brines, soups and stews before serving by placing them in a spice packet for the cooking process.  Cut a couple of squares of cheesecloth then place the spices and herbs in the middle.  Bring the corners up and give a twist then secure tightly with kitchen twine and add the packet to the pot.  When the dish is ready, simply remove the packet.
