Chef Lynn’s Daily Cooking Tip

One of my favorite tips because I love the way fresh herbs smell and looks in my kitchen.

Fresh  basil and other fresh herbs hate to be chilled and will quickly become limp and blacken. Rather than refrigerating, put the stems in a glass of water when you get home and keep the herbs in a cool place in your kitchen.

For the flakiest pastry, freeze butter solid, then grate it with the grating disk of a food processor, or by hand, right into the flour.  Add whatever liquid the recipe calls for, and finish making the dough as quickly as possible.

Did you know that to peel onions easily and with minimal tears, you should soak them in plenty of cold water for 20-30 minutes first. You will find that this toughens the skin, so that it will pull off more easily, and the cold inhibits the gases that will burn your eyes.

Chef Lynn’s Daily Cooking Tip

Saffron threads should be steeped in a little warm water or milk until the color of the liquid is even. Add this to a dish toward the end of cooking.  Saffron powder can be added to food without soaking, but never to hot oil as it will quickly form into gloopy clumps.

Chef Lynn’s Daily Cooking Tip

Use a pastry brush to coat an unbaked pie crust or flan shell with egg whites to “waterproof” it before adding a juicy filling, such as fruit. This will prevent the pastry from becoming too soggy.

Chef Lynn’s Daily Cooking Tip

To remove the odor of raw fish from hands, utensils, and cutting boards, rub with a cut half-lemon.  If you are using fresh lemon juice in a dish, once you have squeezed out the juice you can save the lemon halves for this purpose.
