Professional chefs spend half an hour on the same recipe, and an inexperienced cook attempts to replicate the dish for one and a half. The fact is that real masters know many useful hacks that make cooking easier and speed up the process.
1. For the ice to be transparent, freeze boiled water
Restaurant ice is typically as transparent as glass. And the cubes from your refrigerator are cloudy and white. But this can be fixed; first, boil the water (you can twice), only then pour it into the mold.
2. Always check the age of the eggs to make sure they are fresh
To do this, dip them into the water.
- the newly laid egg will lie sideways to the very bottom
- a week old egg will float up with a blunt end up
- an egg at the age of 2-3 weeks will stand in a glass perpendicular to the bottom
- an old egg will float to the surface - it should never be eaten
3. A large number of eggs can be cooked in the oven
At 160 degrees in a preheated oven, they will cook in 15-30 minutes.

4. Press on the lemon and roll it a little on the table surface
This will make it much easier to squeeze out the lemon juice.
5. Put some frozen grapes in a glass of wine
It will cool down, but not dilute the drink.
6.Using a spoon, you can peel ginger in a couple of minutes
Ginger's form is unusual, to say the least, so it is not very convenient to peel it with a knife; many excesses are cut off. A regular tablespoon will do this better.
7. Store ice cream in a plastic bag
To prevent ice cream from turning to stone in the freezer, first put it in a bag.
8. Shake the garlic well to peel it.
Place the garlic in a bowl and shake well with the palm of your hand. Most of the husk will fall off by itself. You can use a jar with a lid instead of a bowl.
9. When grilling fish, place a few slices of lemon underneath
Cooking fish with lemon will make it taste better.

10. Place a wooden spoon on top of the pot
Then, when boiling, the water will not pour out onto the stove.
11. Bake bacon in the oven
Cafe bacon is always evenly fried; not soggy at the ends, not crumbly in the middle, not tough or overcooked. Most people at home fry bacon in a frying pan and restaurant staff just put it in the oven.
