We all do it. Cheat that its. Maybe not in the strictest sense, but we add bits of this, a pinch of that, a dash of the other to all our homemade dishes.
Do you have some favourite cheats you use? Something you add to your cooking to give an extra depth of flavour? Whether it’s a tomato sauce, a stir fry, a curry, a soup or a veggie gravy. You know the sort of thing that doesn’t get mentioned in any cookbook, but makes all the difference when added.
Looking at this a bit more and thinking about chef’s in their kitchen’s, what do they add to dishes to improve the flavour and looks? Mostly salt, sugar, wine and butter. Now I’m a cook not a chef, preparing everyday meals and the occaisional feast for friends and family, but even so I still like to make food that is tasty!
