TIP FROM THE KITCHENJoe HaiserTips and Tricks in the Kitchen by Joe Haiser

Salt and pepper is a chef’s best friend. Add seasoning to a dish to bring out more intense flavour but, be careful adding to much seasoning as it may ruin the dish. A little trick when adding salt to soup: if you add too much salt, you can place a whole potato into the soup and it will draw out the salt from the soup. When completed, remove the potato.

When cooking using a pan, sometimes you might burn the food and the food sticks to the bottom of the pan. To fix this problem you can simply get a cold wet cloth and place it under the pan. The food will then release from the bottom.
