Number One Chef Secret Will Change Your Cooking Forever!

Have you ever wondered how a chef can be told to cook with a few ingredients and they can pull together a dish without using a cookbook? How is that possible? It’s possible because there are chef secrets that we use in cooking every day. They’re the same chef secrets that I teach in my online cooking classes. If you think about it, I’m sure there are many things you can do very well without having to look for instructions each time you begin.

Think about it. Each time you get in your car to drive somewhere, do you have to take out the owners manual and figure out how to operate the vehicle? No, you’ve done it before.

If you’re a golfer, do you bring an instructional video with you to review before each shot? No, you’ve internalized the steps you need to take to make your best swing. Is it always a perfect shot? No, but you’re always trying to improve. How about if you did have an instructional DVD with you on the golf course? Then, would every shot be perfect? Still no.

So, why do people think if they have a recipe book, every meal will come out perfectly? In fact, you still need to practice, to know the basic cooking methods, the chef secrets that I’ll share with you for creating amazing meals at home. These are the same secrets that students of Web Cooking Classes are using every day.

My first secret to learning how to cook, whether from a book, or cooking online will change the way you think about cooking forever. When I’ve taught this first secret, it has given everyone a sense of freedom, and an instant reduction of cooking stress.

So, what’s the first secret? Recipe books don’t work. They don’t work because the cookbook that you’re reading doesn’t know the size of your ingredients, the altitude in which you live, the true temperature of your stove/oven or how you like your food cooked. Only you know how you like your food to taste and only you can see signs while you’re cooking to understand what to do next. This is why you don’t see chefs pouring over cookbooks. They already know this secret.

Whether you take cooking classes online or in person, make sure that you’re learning chef secrets or basic cooking methods and not recipes. Once you learn these chef secrets, you will understand the basic cooking methods you need to create delicious, healthy, exciting meals every night of the week without having to look at a single recipe!

Handy Tips About Grilling Like A Profecional Chef

Whatever your recipe is, you have to know how to cook a salmon. You have to grill it just right. Never rush in grilling it or else you will destroy it. That is why whenever you want to cook or grill a salmon; you will need a whole of patience to be able to do it just right. You want to make the most perfect salmon you can ever make every time right?

There are some grills with an incredible ability to maintain lower temperatures for extended periods. This is the best condition where you can slow cook your meat until it becomes perfectly tender and juicy. You’ll also want to own a grill that can cook fast without burning the food.

Here are a few tips to get the most out of your electric griddle.

Choose a healthy method for preparation. Appropriate cooking method always helps to preserve nutrients of the food. Grilling, broiling, steaming, and braising are good ways to do this.

Just little things that you would never think twice about could save you alot of time and effort. Try this, next time you are in a kitchen cooking, from the start to the finish, pay close attention to every little thing you do. After the meal is complete think of a few things that you could have done different, I’m sure that with a little advice you could have save at least ten minutes.

A few other tips to make your indirect heat grilled foods shine!

* Marinating – Because grilling is a dry heat that can have the tendency to dry out meats that are cooked for a long time, marinating your food before cooking is a great way to both add savory flavors as well as increase the juiciness. There are many recipes for delicious marinades for poultry, pork and beef and even many bottled marinades available in supermarkets. Another option similar to marinating is brining which really seals in and concentrates flavors.

* Basting – I strongly recommend basting your meat as it cooks over indirect heat. When the surface dries out, every 15 minutes or so during the cooking time, baste it generously with a basting brush. The basting mixture can be similar to the marinating mixture or alternatively it can introduce new flavors. For example, barbecue sauce is not good to marinate with, it will just burn on the meat if it cooks too long.

However, introduced later in the cooking process to baste the meat a few times before it is done creates a great, savory coating of flavor. Other great options for marinating include lemon juice, olive oil, and red wine vinegar, either together or alone.

Again, there are many recipes with recommendations for basting mixtures for your slow roasted grilled foods. For safety, if you baste with your marinade, remember that your marinade came in contact with your raw meat. Therefore, avoid adding this mixture in the last 15 to 20 minutes of cooking so you don’t introduce any uncooked meat to the surface of your roast! Its best to use a fresh basting mixture if possible.

Well that’s it! A quick and complete primer to indirect grilling. I think you will find that it brings your barbecue cooking to a whole new level, making your roasts more tender and juicier.

Holiday Greetings from Chef Barrae

The whirlwind of the holiday season is here and I wanted to wish everyone a very happy holiday. The holidays can be difficult for many people due to the tough economic times we all face. It is nice to know that the warmth of family and friends is truely all we need. The lack of material wealth makes us appreciate our true wealth of family and friends so much more. But not everyone has someone. So take the time to invite a neighbor who you know is alone into your home and share your warm celebration with them. This is also the time to volunteer at a homeless shelter or soup kitchen and bring hope to many people who are down the most. Sharing your time doesn’t cost you anything but is priceless to others and is one of the best gifts you can give.

The holiday season is also especially stressful from a diabetic point of view. Dealing with all of the temptations and bounty of an array of delicious goodies constantly set out before you can be difficult. I’ve learned some simple tips along the way and would like to share them with you. If you are going to be attending holiday parties enjoy a healthful snack before you go. This way you’ll be less tempted to over indulge in the foods you shouldn’t have because you won’t be as hungry. If you can, bring a dish to the party. Make something festive and wonderful that you know you can safely eat. I am sure the hostess will appreciate this gesture as well. By bringing your own dish you’ll be sure to have a delicious and safe choice at the party. When you do indulge in some goodies at the party limit yourself to a tablespoonful of each dish you want to eat. Give yourself the permission to enjoy these special foods and savor every moment of eating them. Take the time to think about what you would enjoy having the most before you go to the party. Choose three foods and stick to your plan. And of course make sure you drink plenty of water. Also think about having a wine spritzer instead of that glass of wine. To make a wine spritzer just add sparkling water or seltzer to about a half glass of wine. Add a squeeze from a lemon or lime for an extra boost in flavor. These tips lighten up your drink and taste so good. And by having less alcohol you may be able to stay in better control of your party plan.

Being home for the holidays is a joyful thing. I always picture the idealic scene of new fallen snow blanketing everything, the smell of wood burning fireplaces wafting through the air as the puffs of smoke drift under a grey-white sky and the warm glow from the twinkling lights on a beautifully decorated Christmas tree as the family gathers around. If you are preparing the holiday dinner or having a holiday party please be sure to check my blog for new recipes posted daily. You’ll find a variety of recipes for everything from soup to nuts as well as chocolate confections that make wonderful gifts for your favorite diabetic family member or friend. Home made confections are simple, inexpensive and are probably one of the most appreciated gifts you can give. Not only are you giving someone a sweet treat that the can enjoy guilt free but you are giving them a piece of yourself by taking the time. The recipes I create are not just for diabetics. My philosophy has always been “Eat, live and enjoy life” and I mean that. As part of the process of testing recipes I have conducted simple, unscientific, blind taste tests. The fact that these food creations were diabetic friendly went almost completely unnoticed by everyone. You can feel confident to serve my dishes to everyone and feel secure that they will enjoy them. I am also available by email to answer any of your cooking questions.Feel free to ask me your food questions or for help to solve your kitchen disaster.

As part of my thank you to everyone here for reading my articles I have made a slide show. It features photographs of all of my special sweet treats and desserts and it will make you drool. Please watch it and enjoy it. You can find it at:

Once again, my warmest wishes to you and your family for the holiday season and a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year to come. I raise my glass in a toast to you and thank you for your loyal support over the past few months and I look forward to sharing so much more with you in the coming new year.

Eat, live and enjoy life!

Happy Holidays,

Chef Barrae
