Cooking Tips from Chef Kate: Mise En Place

Utensils_FormChef Kate has a wealth of helpful little tips that make a big difference in the kitchen. Take a look at this week’s helpful tips and try applying them to your kitchen experience.

Ingredients & Prep:

“Mise En Place…French word, (since I graduated from a French culinary school), meaning, get all your ingredients together and ready to roll!!!!!”

Cooking:

gemüsekorb“Anytime you use raw onions in a cold salad, guacamole, salsa, etc., be sure to rinse the onions under cold water first then blot or shake from a strainer to rid the water residue. This will get rid of the sulfurous gas that can make your salad or salsa taste too potent.”

Cooking Tips from Chef Kate

Utensils_FormToday, Chef Kate has some quick, helpful tips for prep and cooking in the kitchen, including creating your own vinaigrette dressings.

Ingredients & Prep:

“Take the time to read the recipes thoroughly before you shop and begin the process. Doing so can help you get through the ingredient shopping more efficiently.” 

Cooking:

Homemade Wholegrain mustard vinaigrette by fresh ingredients

Homemade vinaigrette dressings have fewer ingredients and taste better than bottled ones. No need to whisk, just put all the ingredients in a sealed container and shake! The best thing about creating your own vinaigrette is that you get to control the quality of what goes in it. Plus, creating your own can often be more economical.”
