I don’t cook a lot. But I loooove watching cooking shows to pick up tips and techniques, small stuff like brushing olive oil on the pizza crust so that it doesn’t get soggy after you pile up on the toppings. Or a quicker way of making pastry by grating frozen butter and gently mixing it with flour using your fingers instead of waiting for the butter to soften and either cutting in the butter into the flour or pulsing it with a food processor.
My current favourite is the Asian Food Channel.
I finally checked out their website and was delighted to find recipes listed by show (The Naked Chef? Chef At Home?), by chef (Jamie Oliver? Michael Smith?) and/or by category (desserts? soups?). Oodles of recipes — desserts, appetisers, Italian recipes, Asian recipes — and all for free. Check it out today! :D
