HOW TO COOK MEAT

TECHNIQUES

Teaching is complicated, but your food doesn't have to be.

When teaching a new cooking technique, it's best to keep the flavors simple and true to the featured ingredient. Complex flavors are just that—complex. The best meat I have ever eaten was slow cooked over a grill with salt and lemon. That single experience forever changed the way I cook. I stopped trying so hard to create flavors. Instead, I began to enunciate the flavors already present by using simple complementary ingredients, with the occasional contrasting flavors thrown in. In doing this the flavors became stronger, purer, and more distinct.

Once you discover or rediscover in some cases the true flavor of your ingredients you will be able to do something very special. You will begin to learn how to build flavors. When you take a few simple pure flavors and put them together in a way that complements each other you are essentially building a new flavor.
