36 quick tips to make your life easier in the kitchen

Cooking is fun – at least it should be!

No matter how long you’ve been in the kitchen, there is always something new to learn, whether it’s a simple twist on an old technique, or a handy tip to save time and energy.

In this series of short videos, I demonstrate a variety of kitchen tips, ranging from how to hold a chef’s knife for maximum control to using a spoon to peel fresh ginger. Want to know how to peel a pomegranate without the mess, roast garlic, or truss a chicken? You’ll find it all here, and more.

We have more than 100 tips in our collection, and are constantly shooting new videos, so check back every week as we rotate in new tips.
