MasterCook Daily Chef's Tip

Don't store your spices and oils near the stove.

Did you know that the heat from the stove and oven degrade the essential oils in spices and dried herbs. The same goes for delicate oils like olive oil and vegetable oil, they loose their flavour when placed near a heat source.

It maybe convenient to have all these items next to the stove, but instead store them in a cool, dry cupboard for enhanced flavours.

Our client is a vegetarian and asked us to help him improve his meals by ensuring his diet is balanced but still exciting and delicious so we came up with the following menu for him for one week:

- Mushroom and pea risotto with fresh Salmon
- Butternut stuffed with feta and beetroot
- Vegetable fried rice with soya chunks
- Hake fillet with sweet potato chips
- Tuna pasta bake
- Pasta, broccoli and beetroot salad
- Creamy mushroom risotto

The cost for this menu for a week came to K1,500 for 14 meals (2 per day), including delivery. The portions are quite generous and are big enough to share for two people. All he has to do this week, is put all the food in the fridge, heat up and enjoy whenever he wants to eat!

Give us a call on 0978709716 and we can plan a menu to suit your specific tastes, diet and budget for either pick up or delivery once a week.

Mastercook Daily Chef's Tip

Winter is gone and we are now officially in braai season! What awesome dishes did you cook up this long weekend? Want to impress your family and friends? Try out this very easy honey glazed garlic pork recipe on your braai today. Let us know how it turned out.... Ingredients

2 cups of Mr. Sauce Zambia tomato sauce
2/3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce from Mr. Sauce
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2kgs of pork chops

Method

Turn on the charcoal and make sure the heat is medium and not too hot. Clean the braai stand with an onion or a lemon. Lightly oil the grate.

Whisk tomato sauce, honey, soy sauce, and garlic together in a bowl to make a glaze.
Sear the pork chops on both sides on the preheated grill. Lightly brush glaze onto each side of the chops as they cook; grill until no longer pink in the center, about 7 to 9 minutes per side.
Tip
Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

We had cooking class this morning with 11 year old Tawana and we learnt how to make Chinese cuisine. After the food was cooked, he even got to try out how to use chopsticks! No point in learning a cuisine without learning the entire culture and history of the food....that's what makes our cooking champs program so informative and so much fun! Sign up your child for classes by calling 0978709716. Invest in your child by giving them a life skill that will broaden their cultural experiences through food.

MasterCook Daily Chef's Tip

Fish is one of our local favourites that can be eaten with nshima, chips, mash or just on its own. Whether it is grilled, boiled, fried or braiied here are a few tips to ensure the best flavour for all your fish dishes.

1. Cooking the best fish starts by choosing the best fish. When you go to buy fish, make sure to touch it gently. If it has a thin film of slimy coating you'll know that its fresh. Fresh fish should always be shiny and vivid in colour and have a round tummy. If the belly is deflated it is a sign that the fish has started going bad. Check the fish eyes and the gills as well to ensure that your purchase is still fresh.
2. If you are planning to fry your fish, make sure you choose smaller fish to fry. The smaller the fish, the more evenly it will cook - perfectly crisp crust while still cooking to the right temperature inside.
3. Sprinkle some salt into the oil and let it heat up before you add your fish. This will ensure that it doesn't stick to the bottom of your pan.
4. Make sure your fish is completely dry after scaling and cleaning. Too much moisture lowers the temperature of the oil and causes your fish to have too much liquid and burn without cooking evenly inside.
5. Don't overcrowd your pan. Cooking too much fish at once causes the fish to absorb too much oil and loose the crisp crust.
6. Before seasoning your fish, squeeze some lemon juice to get rid of nasty fish smell/taste. The lemon can also be squeezed on the cooked fish to enhance the flavour.
7. Slice your fish across the skin to ensure that the seasoning gets right into the fish.

MasterCook Daily Chef's Tip
Don't throw away your used teabags!

In this season, we are drinking tea a lot more than usual. But did you know that teabags are a handy product to have around the house? Here are a few tips for you to re-cycle your used teabags.

1. Protect your houseplants from fungal disease. Re-brew a used teabag and use the cooled weak tea to water your plants or break up the bag and put the wet tea leaves in the soil.
2. Neutralize odors! Spread dried tea leaves in smelly places like the bottom of your kitchen bin to combat offensive odor naturally. You can also de-stink carpets by scattering the dried contents of several teabags on them before you vaccum.
3. De-grease pots and pans. Soak stubborn dishes in water with a used teabag tossed in and watch as the tea works to loosen stuck on food and break up grease.
4. Take the sting out of insect bites and sunburn. Put a cool, damp teabag on the affected area and use like a compress to reduce pain and inflammation.
5. Make a hair rinse. Tea is an excellent, natural way to remove product buildup from your wigs and weaves. Simply soak 3 or 4 used teabags in warm water and pour over your hair after shampooing and conditioning. Don't rinse.
6.De-puff tired eyes. Place cool teabags over your eyes for a de-puffing effect. This reduces bags and dark circles.

With so many restaurants shutting down and downsizing on kitchen staff during the pandemic, We have thought of ways to keep some of our MasterCook Alumni making a living during these trying times.

We now have a takeaway menu cooked by some of our MasterCook chefs at the MasterCook academy for you to try out in the safety and comfort of your homes.

We have a Chinese food menu and a continental family menu that serves 6-8 people per portion so you can share with the entire family without breaking the bank. Call 0978709716 or 0976673227 for pick up from Ibex hill or delivery to you at an extra k30.

Make orders in the morning for lunchtime pick up/delivery and in the afternoon for evening pick up/delivery.

How to make the juiciest roast chicken.

The best roast chicken is crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside with golden skin that's buttery. Here are a few tips to achieve this each and every time.
1. Mix butter with crushed garlic and your favourite herbs then smear all over your raw chicken and under the skin. The more butter under the skin, the better.
2. Keep all the juices that end up on your pan when roasting. This will help make some really delicious sauce or gravy.
3. Place your chicken on a bed of garlic and onions to help elevate the chicken off the base of the pan for more even cooking and to add extra flavour into the pan juices to make your sauce.
4. Add a flavour bomb by stuffing your chicken with lemon wedges and a couple of sprigs of rosemary. Not so much for flavour, but more for aroma.
5. Begin to roast the chicken at 220 degrees for 10mins then reduce to 180 degrees and roast for a further 1 hour 15 minutes or until juices run clear.
