Cooking Myths that Aspiring Cooks Need to Know — 3 Comments

  1. I have a long scar on my thumb, thanks to a very dull knife in my parents-in-law’s kitchen. (I only had to get 3.5 stitches – the dull knife didn’t manage to cut through the side of my thumbnail.)

    I used to dutifully wash chicken. I also used to add oil to the pasta water. But I stopped doing both of those things. Not because I knew they were unnecessary but because I’m lazy.

    And yes, aprons are good. What a shame it is that I’m often too lazy to get one of the aprons that are hanging in full view about three steps away from the kitchen counter. Now that I know the apron might protect our food from whatever is on my clothes, perhaps I won’t be so lazy.
