A cup is not always a cup

Since the cup sizes in recipes and in your kitchen usually differ, there are heavy chances that you will end up ruining the recipe. Keep in mind that a cup is not always a cup. It is advised to measure your ingredients by weight and not by volume. This will, in turn, easily organise the quantity of your ingredients. 

Strong foundations

Although strong foundations come from books and repetition of knowledge, it also comes from starting your dish on a strong foundation using a good stock. As for browning meat, for the best flavour, let the veggies turn golden brown for the best taste. Know your base correctly before you start.

Time makes the flavour

Keep in mind that there is no point in rushing your dishes. Savour them and let them have the exact time that they need to be cooked to perfection. When you slow cook something to break down the toughness, you will also be repaid with a better flavour. The slow cooking also removes the water that dilutes the flavour of the dish. 


Often times, after cooking the dish perfecting, chefs usually goof up with the seasoning. It is important to season the dish as much as it needs but it is also important to make sure that you do not season it too much. Many old chefs follow the rule where the dish starts to taste 'almost salty' and that is where they stop. It is essential to let the seasoning bring out the flavours in your dish.
