How to cook what
Whether you’re preparing a feast in advance or quickly preparing dinner, you must match ingredients with the right way of preparing and cooking them. Choosing the correct cooking method will produce the texture, appearance, and flavor of the dish you want to eat and enjoy.
The basic cooking methods are three: dry heat, moist heat and a combination of the two.
The dry-heat method, which is a quick process, adds crispness and flavor, but doesn’t make food soft to chew. It is soft, or tender to begin with. For example make crisps, or french fries.
The moist-heat method is cooking with water or stock (vývar).
For example steam your dumplings or boil the potatoes.
The third category is the combination of the two and it is long, slow-cooking method to tenderize chewy cuts of meat. For example cook the meat like goulash – but not beef sirloin in cream sauce (svíčková).
