Tips from the American South:


*However much butter a recipe calls for, double it. Then work from there, adding more if needed.

*If all else fails, try frying it. Doesn't matter what it is.

In the south, you can fry anything. We have fried ice-cream. And yeah, you can't really have too much butter.

RE: Cooking Tips
I usually take chicken off the grill just before it reaches 165F, because by the time you put it under foil to rest, it will reach 165F. If you take it off at exactly 165 degrees, it will be slightly overcooked and tend to come out dry.

I also score chicken with the knife before marinating it; this simply makes the chicken look nicer when it's cooked and also let's the marinade get in all those nooks and crannies.

-If you've batter-fired anything, don't drain it on paper towels. This traps the steam and runs the risk of making the bottom soggy.  Use a narrow gauge cooling rack or a sheet of slightly crumpled foil.

-Even if the recipe doesn't call for it, add a smidge of corn flour to any tempura batter. It makes the batter adhere to the food better.

-You can disinfect wooden cutting boards with white vinegar.  It's acidic enough to kill any lurking salmonella germs, and won't change the taste of the next thing you cut.

-Meat, veg and eggs should always be at room temperature before you start cooking them.

-Parchment paper is king.

Any others?

I am a lazy fuck, I order out.

If I cooked I could burn boiled water.

I have never been drunk enough to make sardine anything.

Not to be a nudzh, but this bit's largely a myth.  It takes an awfully long time (in cooking terms) to burn off the alcohol.

Oh, I thought that was true. :-)
It looks good though.
