Help is on the way.

PEELING ONIONS MAKES YOU CRY?


Leave the onions in the fridge for 20-30 minutes before peeling. Never cry again.

FRY, YES… SMELLS, NO.


Frying can cause your house to smell like a cook house. For avoiding that, when frying, burn some potato & lemon skin in an ashtray.

SEASON AT THE END


Season your favorite tomato salad only when you are ready to serve. Otherwise, it  will look more like a soup because the salt tends to drain the fluids, leaving your tomatoes shrunken.

IT’S A SECRET…


When cooking a risotto, add the hot vegetable broth gradually and not from the beginning. As the boiling comes to an end, reduce the amount of broth so that the risotto won’t over-cook. The risotto must be firm, “al-dente” as the Italians say.

DID YOU KNOW THAT…


In Greece, after the 15 of August, the lobster fishing is forbidden, because their breeding season starts?
