Tips On How To Complement Your Cooking Skills

The hardest part about for most of us is figuring out who we are. What we are capable of, and where our weaknesses are. What our interests lie, and what we want for ourselves and our future. But once you’ve figured these out, all you need to do is make a plan and work hard (and smart) to achieve it. Do you have an interest in cooking? Do you feel your cooking or culinary skills are beyond ordinary? Here’s how to complement it further…

Train yourself in the areas of the kitchen you have not ventured to yet

If you are like most, and have a passion for cooking, but haven’t actually had any formal training, then chances are that your culinary skills lie heavily on certain areas of the kitchen. For example, if you are an exceptional baker, chances are that you might not be too skilled on ordinary, day-to-day cooking. Or if you’re a chef who can whip up any meal to perfection, perhaps you are not very experienced in making drinks. This leaves you feeling a little lacking in skill. Fortunately, this is something that can be corrected, as there is the lavazza coffee machine and other cookery courses, as well as thousands of instruction videos found online to help you here. Trust us, some chefs swear that they’ve learnt far more through YouTube that they hadn’t even heard of in cooking school…!

Teach yourself the art of matching your food and drinks

The food you make and the drinks you create are never complete on their own. Perhaps it is human nature to always want something along what you eat or drink to feel completely satisfied. Take baking for example. Your cakes and sweet pies are no doubt delicious on their own. But combine it with a strongly brewed cup of coffee from your rocket espresso machine, and you’ll notice the improvement! Likewise, some dishes and meals need particular drinks to bring out their true flavor. Experiment and find them. Learn to make them, and learn the art of serving them together for the best of results for custom wine cellars.

The importance of the presentation should never be overseen

It is not without reason that is said we first eat through our eyes. Apart from tasting good, it’s vital that your food is appealing too. To further enhance the appeal of your food, learn the art of presenting your food. Use the correct cutleries, and the right dinnerware. Learn to balance the colors, not only on the dishes that you serve, but also on the background that you serve it on; like napkins and table cloths. If you teach yourself to do so the correct way (through experimenting), it will indeed complement your cooking skills…

Plant Based Alternatives To The World’s Favourite Food

Veganism is taking the world by storm and big companies are looking for plant based alternatives to the world’s favorite foods. It is no secret that the world loves it’s processed food and it’s junk food and that pizza, burgers, hot dogs, cheese and other processed meat products have been top favorites for many years however, now that the truth about the cruelty behind the meat industry and the dairy industry has been exposed in documentaries such as earthlings and Cowspiracy, many young people are switching to a vegan lifestyle which does not use any animal products. So much so that companies such as McDonald’s have noted a steep drop in their sales and have even started closing down hundreds of their stores around the world because young people no longer want this cruelty in their food.However, this does not mean that these young people do not still love the food that they used to eat and therefore, many big companies that were previously wholesale meat companies are now turning to developing healthier plant based alternatives to traditional sausages and burgers.

Healthier and cleaner diet

In addition to people switching to veganism because it is less cruel and because it is ethical, many people are also changing their diets because of how unhealthy meat and dairy are. It has been proven by the world health organization that processed meat causes cancer and therefore, even those who are not interested in the ethical aspect are changing their diets slowly by reducing the meat that they consumer. To supply this change in demand, we are seeing hundreds of small home based vegan meat delivery companies cropping up around the world to provide these hot dog and pizza loving individuals with a healthier alternative.It is indeed an alarming fact that most of the world’s grains are fed to animals when there are thousands and millions of people starving in the world. If that same food was given to the humans, there would no longer be starvation in the world because the world producing enough of grain to feed fifteen billion humans when in fact, there are only eight billion humans living on the planet and all of that extra food is fed to animals for some of the world to eat while more than half of the world is starving. In addition to this, this small portion of the world that consumes fifty six billion land animals is dying of illness and obesity with more of them dying of obesity and obesity related diseases than people die of hunger and starvation.
