Cooking Tips & Tricks

  • Covert plain flour into self raising flour by adding 2 teasp of baking powder to 1 cup of flour.
  • Bad eggs sink good eggs rise/float. Put your eggs in a bowl of water to test them out.
  • Meringues do not like any moisture! So make sure all utensils are dry and you are not cooking on a damp day.
  • When baking cakes, never open the oven during the first half of the cooking time. Cold air will disturb the rising of your cake & make it flat!
  • Best way to test if your cake is ready is to insert a cake tester, skewer or toothpick into the center of the cake; if the tester comes our clean & dry your cake is ready
  • To give you cake a more professional look apply 1 thin layer of icing/frosting first to seal in any remaining crumbs and then apply a thicker final layer.
  • Run your fresh herbs under hot water before using them, this will bring out their flavour & aroma
  • Your can freeze Kaffir Lime leaves! Who would have thought..
  • If you cannot find Gluten Free Cornflour / Cornstarch you can replace it with Arrowroot.
  • Do not boil rice noodles. Simply place them in a bowl add boiling water from the kettle then let sit 5mins or until soft.
