27 Best Kitchen Hacks From Chefs You Would Love To Know

Cooking is an art. Creating sumptuous, delicious, full of flavor and delicate meals require talent and lots of practice. And practice makes perfect! Experienced chefs often asked to share their tips, recipes, and shortcuts.

Here is a list of 27 invaluable kitchen hacks from seasoned cooking experts.

  1. If you wish to infuse your dish with the appetizing garlicky scent but concerned about how much of this strong ingredient is right, then simply rub some crushed garlic over the inside surface of the plate just before serving.
  2. A bottle of beer can be used in the kitchen to improve the taste of many dishes. Beer mixed with a few drops of soya sauce makes an excellent meat marinade.
  3. Adding a small amount of dark beer to vegetable stew wonderfully improves the taste.
  4. Too much salt in the soup? No worries! Place some rice or other grains in a piece of cheesecloth, tie it up and submerge in the pot. Rice will absorb excessive salt during cooking. Alternatively, use a whole peeled raw potato for the same purpose.
  5. When preparing chicken or beef liver, add salt at the end of cooking. This tip helps to keep the liver soft and juicy.
  6. If the top of the cake in the oven begins to turn brown before the cake is thoroughly baked, cover it with a damp paper towel.
  7. Cooked rice will be crispy white if you add a few drops of vinegar into the water during cooking.
  8. Having trouble slicing boiled egg? Dip the knife in very cold water.
  9. To have a nice clear broth, throw an ice cube in a pot and bring to a boil.
  10. White beans will not get unpleasant grayish color if cooked in a pot not covered with a lid.
  11. Ground beef tastes best with the addition of grated raw onion or raw potato.
  12. Beef will be soft and tender if you let the meat marinate in mayonnaise half an hour before cooking.
  13. To prevent the eggplant from tasting bitter, slice it, sprinkle with salt and let stand for about 10 minutes. Then be sure to rinse the salt off with cold water.
  14. To easily skin (or ‘blanche’) your almonds, place raw nuts in boiling water for no longer than 1 minute and then immediately rinse them with cold water.
  15. To get ideally smooth creme fresh, add to sour (fresh) creme raw egg white and whisk.
  16. Add a pinch of salt in ground coffee before brewing to enhance the aroma of your favorite drink.
  17. Rub the meat with honey, brandy diluted with water, or pomegranate juice before baking for a nice crispy crackling.
  18. Adding washed banana peel to the meat broth during cooking helps to soften the meat.
  19. When making apple pie, remember to roll apple slices in flour before placing on a pie crust so they do not pile up.
  20. When a recipe calls for bread crumbs, try replacing them with crushed nuts. It tastes better!
  21. The taste of dishes will be richer if you warm up the plate before serving a hot dish, and chill the plate for a cold dish.
  22. Always allow the cooked meat time to rest once it’s out of the oven to gain a full flavor.
  23. To make sure the amount of salt in the dish is just right, feel free to taste your cooking often enough. It will also help determine when the dish is done.
  24. To give your soup best appetizing look, add some carrot juice before removing it from the heat.
  25. Make sure your kitchen knives are always sharp. This will minimize the probability of getting injured when cutting food and cooking will become faster and more enjoyable.
  26. The idea of adding a little vanilla to a vegetable salad seems strange, but it really improves the taste!
  27. Instead of salt and vinegar, choose to use lemon juice instead. The citrus flavor will not spoil the taste of any dish, and the food becomes more nutritious.
