Cooking Tips:

  • Have all your ingredients prepped and measured out before commencing cooking. This makes the process more efficient and pleasurable.
  • Adding seasoning gradually at every stage of cooking enhances the flavors of the dish. This is especially important when sautéing vegetables and cooking meat.
  • Fresh herbs can elevate the flavors of your dish. If using dried herbs, they are more potent, so adjust accordingly.
  • Avoid overcrowding the pan when sautéing or searing, to achieve proper browning instead of steaming, which could lead to flavor loss.
  • After cooking meat, let it rest for a few minutes before cutting. This lets the juices redistribute, maintaining moisture and flavor.
  • Using high-quality olive oil can significantly impact the taste of your dishes, particularly in recipes like Tzatziki sauce.
