How do they do it? How can adding a dab of this and a sprinkle of that change simple meals into fine dining experiences? Many call it magic in the kitchen so let’s look into some of the special treatment great chef’s use on our basic meat and potatoes.
A gourmet chef may also be called the head chef or executive chef
The executive chef of a fine dining establishment has most likely spent years in training and has built a reputation for creating specialty meals that many consider «to die for»! He or she has cooking skills which are complex and advanced far beyond the everyday cooks capabilities and it took years to perfect their recipes.
Usually blessed with a discriminating palate themselves they know what works when it comes to adding flavourings to their dishes. Often the gourmet chef works in a preferred cuisine and hones their skills over time. They may even own a restaurant or teach at a culinary arts school. They may not do all the cooking themselves but they will oversee and be in charge of whatever comes out of their kitchen.
It’s all about the seasonings in gourmet recipes
Sometimes all you need to make a delicious hamburger or steak is some salt and pepper. Of course that means sea salt and freshly ground black pepper not the common condiments you find in most home kitchens. Knowing just how much to use and when to apply it can make all the difference in the flavors when it comes to a fine dining experience. Steaks come out fine when cooked in a skillet on top of a kitchen stove’s burner, but the type of skillet can make all the difference. Chefs know the best skillet to use will be made of cast iron. On medium high heat and once that skillet is really hot (test by holding the palm of your hand 2″ to 3″ above the surface of the skillet and check for a truly hot pan) add 1-2 tablespoons of butter, and then the steaks. Cook them 3 minutes then turn, adding more butter to the skillet as you turn them and cook for an additional 3 minutes. This will produce a medium rare steak. Add another minute per side for medium well. An easy and excellent marinade to use if you want more flavor than just salt and pepper provide is to add 2 cloves of garlic, 3-4 tablespoons of olive oil, and 2-3 sprigs of thyme to a plastic bag, add steaks, seal up and store in refrigerator for 4 hours or more.
