Ways to Become The Next Top Chef
If you have a thrill for cooking, and want to step up your game a bit you may want to stop what you're doing, and listen closely to these helpful tips. If you’re going to do something, you might as well be as good as you possibly can at it, and in the cooking realm no exceptions are taken. Most people think they can go from recipe to recipe, and be consider a top dog in the cooking world. While recipes are the fiber of the cooking world, they won’t give you the full key things in becoming a better cook.
1. Listen to Those Around You
If you are a professional cook, or even just a home cook make it an effort to listen closely to someone you know that has skills when it comes to cooking. Their are so many different strong points each cook holds, and if you get to take a journey into a friend, or chefs strong point listen to what they have to say. This will help make your more rounded in the cooking world, and not just a one trick pony. By personally working with different chefs, and friends with different backgrounds, I now know how to cook more cuisines from different countries then I can name on a map.
Not all culinary work comes from out of the kitchen. If your going to prepare good food, then you need to do your research behind it. Different foods have different times in the year when the are in season, and at their best. Food has different way of being seasoned, prepared, etc. to make it at its very best. And any good chef in the world will agree that sometimes you can not rely on a recipe for a dish, but by having to go in, and taste the dish until it is perfect.
3. Have Confidence in Your Dish
No one is going to want to eat a dish that a cook made if you describe it as “ yea it’s alright”. You have to put your heart behind it, and know that the dish will be a home run no matter who is eating. Cook how you would want your food to be cooked for yourself, and prepare the dish as if it has a piece of you behind it(not literally though).
