Expert Tips

Feta is a crumbly, white, moist and tangy cheese. It hails from Greece, where it is a culinary star. Look for feta with the other cheeses - both in jars with brine and pre-crumbled.

If using large scallops, cut into halves or quarters. Be careful not to overcook scallops because they will become rubbery.

When a recipe calls for peeled and seeded tomatoes, cut out the core and score a cross in the rounded bottom of the tomato. Immerse in a pan of boiling water for 10 to 15 seconds, until the skins split. Transfer to a bowl of cold water with a slotted spoon. The skin will peel right off. To seed, cut in half crosswise and squeeze out seeds.
