    • To know when it’s time to flip the steaks, shake the frying pan a little. If the meat slides easily, then it’s time to turn it over.
    • Don't serve meat as soon as it is cooked. Let the meat “rest” for a few minutes after cooking, for the best texture and flavour.
    • Don't put too much in the frying pan at one time. For tender, juicy meat, leave enough space between pieces so that they are not crowded.
    • A layer of lemon slices between the fish and the grill prevents the fish from sticking, and adds a little flavour.
    • Sprinkle herbs with a pinch of salt to stop the herbs from sticking to your knife.
    • If you need to soften butter quickly, put a glass of water in the microwave, and heat it up a bit. Then pour the water out, and place the glass over a piece of butter. The butter will start melting under the glass after a few minutes.
    • When baking something in the oven with a cheese coating, add the cheese 5 minutes before taking the dish from the oven. Otherwise, the cheese will burn and turn into a hard crust.
    • Lay a kitchen towel underneath your cutting board to keep it from slipping.
    • Mash potatoes using warm milk, not cold milk, for brighter and whiter potatoes.
    • If you need to hard boil a lot of eggs, cook them in the oven, not in a pot of water.
    • To test an egg for freshness, gently drop it into a deep bowl of cold water. A very fresh egg will sink to the bottom. If the egg balances in the water, it is about two-three weeks old but still good. Eggs that float to the surface have gone bad, and should not be eaten.
    • If you need some mayonnaise, simply blend 1 egg with 150 ml of olive oil.
    • Wine can stay fresh for only a few days after opening.
    • Don't fry food with extra virgin olive oil. It will smoke at a higher temperature, affecting the taste of your dish and making it less healthy.
