Food Network recently asked fans on Facebook for their best cooking advice. Many responded with advice from some of our all-star chefs, while others shared top tips learned in the home kitchen. Here are some of the highlights:
- Marina Muñoz: There are three and they are all from Ina. First, add coffee to enhance chocolate. Second, roll blueberries around in flour so they don’t sink to the bottom of muffins. And lastly, keep mashed potatoes hot by putting them in a double boiler before serving.
- Tina Banaszewski: Save rinds from hard cheeses like Parmigiano-Reggiano to use in soups or sauces. Drop in and take out like you would a bay leaf. So crazy how flavorful this is.
- Deborah Campbell: You can always add (seasonings), but you can’t take away, so add a little at a time.
- Amber White: Place a chilled disc of pie pastry into a floured two-gallon Ziplock bag and roll out while it’s in the bag. Cut the side seams of the bag when done, place upside-down pie plate over dough and flip the whole thing over. Mess is contained, dough doesn’t tear.
