Chef Uses Cheese Balls to Teach Food-Flipping Skills
Subscribe to KATP on
One the questions Chef John of Food Wishes is asked most frequently: how do chefs manage to flip food in a pan? Eventually he decided to film a video for all of us slobs, revealing (with low-stakes snack food) how the pros do it.
When most amateur cooks attempt this trick, they end up having to pick chunks of whatever they were preparing out from the inside of their range. As you can see, the key is not to toss the food upward. Or, as Chef John puts it, “Up and down is very lame. Back and forth shows your game.”
That was simple enough, wasn’t it? Now all you need is a goofy catchphrase and/or haircut and you too can be a TV chef. Don’t forget the cheese-balls!
