If you have five minutes, you can learn a lot about how to get things done in the kitchen, thanks to this video from Brothers Green Eats. At times hilarious but consistently informative, they will show you how to hold a knife, how to blanch vegetables and a few other tricks you may not have been taught.
Among the ten tips are some simple ones you may be familiar with already, like how to roast vegetables or properly season food, but they're worth the refresher. The video starts with the ways to best handle a chef's knife, and how to cut food (not to mention what those various cuts you see in recipes are.)
They also get into the difference between a boil and a simmer, what "sauteing" actually is, and more. The full video is worth the watch, so check it out above, or hit the link below to see it at YouTube.
