Heston Blumenthal

Some sound advice from my friend Heston:)

“Mushrooms should never be washed / Salting meat before cooking prevents browning / The tenderness of meat is affected by the way in which it is carved / Cooking green vegetables with a lid on will dull their colour / Salt must be added to pulses at the end of cooking / An egg yolk can only emulsify one cup of oil / As meat cooks the juices move towards the centre / Storing tomatoes in the refrigerator ruins their flavour / Fish is ready when specks of white albumen appear on its surface / Flour must always be sieved”
