Casserole, omelete, salmon
These are the new kitchen rules that the world’s most experienced chefs swear by.

When you spend all day in the kitchen, you’re bound to pick up a trick or two along the way. These six new kitchen rules are the tips the world’s most experienced chefs swear by.

  1. The secret to the best-tasting bacon and steak is caramelization. Learn how to master the process and get perfectly browned meat every time. Watch the video
  2. No more crunchy omelets: Crack eggs on a flat surface to avoid egg shells in your food.
  3. Get gourmet flavor from your spices. Before adding to recipes, toast your spices in a dry pan over low stovetop heat to open up the flavor and add a little nuttiness.
  4. Make that pasta perfect. To avoid watery lasagna, drain noodles well and blot them with a paper towel.
  5. Grilling fish and other delicate foods can be tricky. Beat the stickiness by coating the grates with cooking oil on a cloth once the grill has been preheated.
  6. Stock your kitchen like a pro. The best investment for any kitchen is a good, sharp chef’s knife. Most home cooks should choose an 8-inch chef’s knife for maximum versatility.
