10 Time-Saving Kitchen Hacks

10 Time-Saving Kitchen Hacks | The Chef's Cafe | Scoop.it

While these kitchen hacks are now second-nature to me, I’m always reminded that they seem downright bizarre to a visiting houseguest or friend.“Why do you keep ginger and coconut flour in your freezer?” Or “Why do you store onions in lunch bags?” I’ve been frequently asked. Well, friends and family, here are the methods to my madness!

The Future Of Cooking With Wearable Tech

The Future Of Cooking With Wearable Tech | The Chef's Cafe | Scoop.it

Summary

In 2011, the Montana-based Garcia, personal chef and founder of Montana Mex, was accidentally electrocuted during a hike, and subsequently lost part of his left arm. Since then, he has experimented with a variety of both digital and mechanical prostheses.


The mechanics must match the medium: when it comes to cooking, Garcia needs something that is hyper-responsive, adaptable, and can be both strong and sensitive. He needs something that can pluck a succulent berry without smashing it, for example, and then seamlessly switch to cutting up, say, a tough steak. Simply put, he requires a piece of technology that doesn't quite exist yet.


Garcia discusses the ideal wearable for a master of herbs and spices like himself: "If I were going to dream something up, it would be a non-harnessed, self-fastening prosthetic that has total sensitivity to touch, and total temperature sensitivity." He wants a faster, more adaptable tool, that offers him the ability to multi-task and to feel everything that's going on in the process. On top of those adaptations, Garcia imagines a prosthetic limb that has an LED screen that could display pH readings and instant-bacteria warnings. Fingers equipped with suction cups would also ensure that even the slipperiest foods wouldn't be a threat.

Pastry Chef Secrets: Building a Perfect Pie Crust

Pastry Chef Secrets: Building a Perfect Pie Crust | The Chef's Cafe | Scoop.it

First off, let’s look at what can go wrong — forewarned is forearmed, right? With pie pastry, there are two main problems: tough crust and dust crust. The former requires a knife — or, in extreme cases, a jackhammer — to get through the bottom crust. The latter is so dry it is more of a choky pile of crumbs than the tender, flaky crust it is meant to be.

Bent Philipson Chef's curator insight, June 17, 11:22 AM

The youngest of the three sibling’s parents always taught us to carry a positive approach towards life and inculcate the importance of optimism. I began spending more and more time in kitchen and cooking became my hobby. As I grew older I was drawn to the aroma of food, would help my mother in her work, read cookery books and fish out new recipes and try them out.
