Professional chefs spend half an hour on the same recipe, and a newcomer in the kitchen tries to make something similar for one and a half. The fact is that real masters know many useful tricks that facilitate and speed up the cooking process.
1. For the ice to be transparent, freeze boiled water
The ice served in restaurants is usually crystal clear. 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
In an oven preheated to 160 degrees, 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
The drink will turn cold but not diluted.
6.Using a spoon, you can peel ginger in a couple of minutes
Ginger has a rather bizarre shape, 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
Any fish will be tastier if cooked with lemon.

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.
