Some people freely admit that they have trouble boiling water when it comes to cooking techniques. But some seemingly simple tasks aren’t so easy to do if your standards are set high enough. The proliferation of cooking shows doesn’t quite help because every TV chef has his/her own way of creating the same dish — so there’s no consistent method. Here are just a few examples of some “easy dishes” to prepare.
- A perfectly fried egg is cooked in a small pool of olive oil over medium-high heat. But in this particular demonstration, the perfect egg might be a bit more runny than some people like their eggs. [url]
- Freezing water might not sound like a tricky task, but if you want optically-clear ice cubes without any annoying bubbles or haziness in them — there are a few tricks to it. When water freezes slowly, fewer air bubbles get trapped inside — so cool your water down slowly in an insulated container. [url]
- There are plenty of tips on how to properly cook a hard boiled egg. Start with room temperature eggs, cold water and remove them from heat about a minute after the water boils… but there are no guarantees on how easy those eggs will be to peel. [url]
