    I've heard that if you put olive oil in pasta water, it makes the cooked pasta a lot more slippery and makes it hard to serve...

    Why would you add olive oil to the water? It makes the sauce slip away

    If you cook rice, might as well ask an asian how to do it. You don’t need a strainer to clean it. That’s just extra. And when it comes to water-rice ratio, you use your fingers haha...

    Easier way to cook rice: pour how ever much rice you want, in Hong Kong we call it 1 mark about 150g would be 1.5 person serving, wash in bowl, cold water. Before you wash soak the rice in cold water for 2 mins, place hand on side of bowl and pour out all water and rinse. How to rinse: swirl rice in cold water. Repeat 5 times. Now transfer to your cooking pot or something, add water, place hand on top of water and wait for water to be over the top of your hand. A tad bit of water if you want it softer. NEVER season rice with anything… enjoy the sweetness and the texture of the rice. NEVER ADD salt and pepper it's gonna mess everything up. And steam for 20 mins, never lift the top off. Another way is to double steam it using a cloth holding the rice and makesure water never touches the rice, steam for 20 ish mins depending on how you like it

    Unfortunately that's not how you cook basmati. I am from Bengal, India and my staple food is rice. I have seen and helped my mom cook rice all my life. Take a large pot. Wash and soak the rice for 5-6 hours. Then, you always cook the rice in excess water ( quite a bit excess so that you've a lot of excess water left when the rice is cooked). This allows for the starch to go in the water. Cover the pan. Check the rice periodically by eating a grain to see if it's cooked and when done drain all the water. Draining the hot water is tricky and be careful. Once drained completely, the rice is ready. The rice in popular youtube videos look ok as it is still hot. Actually if you look carefully it is clumpy and when it will get cold it will also get sticky. My dad is very fastidious about non-sticky rice and you've to be vigilant while cooking it so it doesnt over cook. The popular recipes/videos and rice cookers don't have the excess water step to avoid draining it but if you really want to have non sticky rice you should try it. Enjoy!

    CHEF. But you Mr. Ramsey,
    In MY opinion, are an abomination.

    • Wulfgar4269
      Wulfgar4269 4 days ago

      It throws the timing off. If you give the water a head start with it already being hot, then it's soaking in water for a shorter period of time and won't cook properly. Cold water gives it the full duration needed.

    The olive oil on the pasta will just make any sauce slide right off. It will never coat the pasta properly. Even if he doesn't plan to add sauce (why wouldn't you?), he should've warned of this issue. Seems like he may not know...

    Blackberry Kush offers an indica mix of blackberry and Afghani strains. It has an interesting intrigue here since it presents to you some dim purple buds with a touch of orange hairs. These Blackberry Kush are exceptionally thick, regardless of whether they don't have a high return. That is the thing that makes them so one of a kind regardless and the esteem is undoubtedly best in class here.

    He didn't chop the onion finely. Marco Pierre White doesn't want you to chop it like that and he is right. Marco's way is better and the onion is finer and less of it is wasted. You can use that onion again for something else.
    Plus he makes it look easy. But we don't have such sharp knives and I would love to see him try that with a small purple unevenly circular shaped onion

    1) diced the onion BACKWARDS, the slicing is much easier when the horizontal ones are done first
    2) that's BASMATI rice, every rice is different, chinese rices would be a bit drier but use MORE water, every type of rice is different.
    3) skinning a fish filet... yea that's spot on
    4) how to sharpen a knife... uses a HONING steal... that's honing the blade not sharpening it. And jesus is that... him honing at a 45 degree angle? 15-20 for that knife Gordon! Holy shit...
    5) yea sure, no problems with his pasta
