    Default Chef/Culinary Talk with Cooking Tips


    i can't cook but when i try to, i usually add a "personal loving touch" to the recipe. in order words, make a mess with it. i tend to fiddle with it until i like it. it drives my friends and family nuts because theirs never turns out like mine.

    there are also times when you look at a certain recipe, some ingredients are just so rare that even the most sophisticated grocery in town don't have 'em. so i just use whatever's available and within reach.

    tell me, how often do you subsitute or change ingredients in recipes? and what sorts? for example, instead of butter, you put on margarine.

    also, what herbs and spices compliments what certain meat. (this really confuses me!) i heard basil is great with chicken.

    of course, cooking with garlic. what dishes require lil, more or no garlic at all.

    inputs please...

    always hehe 90% of the time i play with the ingredients which drives my chef friends nuts because there are some ingredients that are dangerous. like for example u can never substtute baking powder withi baking soda but u can substitue baking soda with baking powder.

    i play wiht the ingredients so much to the point that i dont measure anymore my ingredients when i bake

    I use herbs depending on how I cook . Whats good on pork when broiled might not be good when being baked or grilled vice versa .

    One technique also that i will be using everytime I cook is by utilizing the stocks . If not readily available , it can substituted with a soup base like the Maggi Boulions . Though be according to it when using ie: when the meat is chicken , use only chicken broth and not beef broth . CHicken broth can be used on all poultry meats , beef broth on all beef meats and ham broth on all pork broths . I prefer the ham broth for all seafood dishes also .
