Mastering Knife Skills

According to Ramsay, the first skill every home cook should master is knife skills. This includes learning to hold and use a knife properly and basic cutting techniques like dicing, slicing, and chopping.

Learning to Sear

Searing is a cooking technique that involves browning the surface of meat or vegetables in a hot pan. Ramsay advises home cooks to get their pan hot before adding the food and not to overcrowd the pan, which can lower the temperature and prevent proper searing.

Making Perfect Scrambled Eggs

According to Ramsay, the key to making perfect scrambled eggs is to whisk them thoroughly before cooking and slowly over low heat. He also advises adding a bit of crème fraîche or sour cream to the eggs for added richness and creaminess.

Roasting Vegetables

Ramsay recommends roasting vegetables as a simple and delicious way to prepare them. He advises coating the vegetables in oil, seasoning them with salt and pepper, and roasting them in a hot oven until they are golden brown and tender.

Making the Perfect Steak

Finally, Ramsay offers his advice on how to make the perfect steak. He advises using a hot pan or grill, seasoning the steak with salt and pepper, and cooking it until it’s cooked to your preferred level of doneness.
