I promise you that you too can eat using chopsticks, no matter how hopelessly un-Asian you think you are, no matter how klutzy you are. You probably won’t lose an eye or any extremities during the course of this procedure, but if you want to be safe, you might want to go put on that pair of safety goggles in the garage.
Step 1: Take your first chopstick and hold it like you were going to write your name with it. The chopstick should wind up in your thumb and there should be approximately an inch of choptick out in front of your fingers. The part that would be the writing end.
Step 2: Introduce your other hand and push the chopstick out another inch, so there are two inches that would be the writing end. Next, really get the chopstick nestled in your thumb. Brace the chopstick with your middle finger and maintain a firm grip. Really push against it. Think of this chopstick as being completely stuck like this forever and ever. Okay, let’s not think of the difficultly that you’ll have going to the bathroom, we’re all trying to eat here. It’s hypothetical anyways! You should be able to move the top of your thumb and your entire index finger freely.
Now you can start carving. Remember, our top chopstick trick is to use the chopstick as a spoon. It’s especially helpful if you are trying to snaffle or ball up some green beans or radishes. Keep the forked end tucked outwards, and remember to give it a small twist at the beginning. This direction will help you collect all the food as you make the meal. Most of these recipes will call for rice vinegar, so we’ll need that on hand.
If you intend sautéing, dipping, or any other method that requires a sauce, place the sauce or vegetables on a flat surface before you start working with the raw ingredients. This will make it easier to blend or blend the different flavors together. You will also want to have a couple of tablespoons of sesame oil and a teaspoon of soy sauce. Both of these are springy oils that will be very compatible with the foods you’re preparing.
How long do you intend to cook?
Most recipes will ask you how long you cook your dish. This will help you know if your recipe will be a success or not. The time it takes to cook a dish depends on a number of factors such as what you’ve bought the food for, how much time you have available, and how much of the ingredients you need.
Make sure your ingredients are at room temperature before you start preparing the food.
Before slicing, thoroughly wash all of the ingredients. Both fruits and vegetables must be washed thoroughly, to remove wax and pesticide residue.
Try to avoid using harsh chemicals. Never ever keep chemicals on or near food. BHA and BHT are toxic and will pollute the food.
The convention for removal of sticking is to valley the food using the manual method. This will DRYEN the food. The recommended time for the above method is to after the first cooking.
When you are done with the prepared foods, store them in air-tight containers. This will help keep them fresher for longer.
Foods that have been frozen should be thawed at refrigerator temperatures. If you desire to have food items reach a fully thawed state in a faster manner, they can be thawed out of the freezer.
All catering menus require the Ahead of Time purchase of catering equipment. FOOD buys take the lead when it comes to catering equipment. Shopping for pans and knives, storage containers, cutlery, hasn’t it all got to be bought in one go? Yes! fo waste. But then, price it right and save money while you are in the process of creating a fantastic menu.
