2. Potatoes and cheese are a crowd-pleaser.

Antoni wanted an assured hit for the attendees of a faculty fundraiser. He did a ballot and observed out that potatoes and cheese are a famous dish. This is science. Antoni Porowski offers human beings what they want.

3. It’s okay to take some inventive license with food.

Antoni wants to pay homage to the faculty’s mascot, the Blue Devil, but there may be no such issue as a blue potato. There are, however, purple potatoes, which Antoni says are near enough. We like this attitude, Antoni!

4. A “double boiler” is the name of the game to melting without burning.

Antoni says that when you attempt to melt something, like cheese for delicious cheese-and-potatoes, it may just burn in a skinny pan. Been there! This accessible trick of setting a metallic bowl on top of the pot of boiling water lets steam soften what’s in the bowl without burning it.

5. Never stop seasoning.

As he’s preparing the potatoes with kosher salt and olive oil, Antoni reminds us to “season every step of the manner.” Never a bland second!

6. Keep a towel on hand when running with olive oil.

Antoni recommends an “obligatory towel” for wiping all that oil off your hands as you season each step of the way.

7. $4.00 is an adorable rate for food.

Antoni facilitates the students to rate the cheese-and-potatoes dish to make a few cash without being too pricey and going over their $four.50 limit. He settles at $4.00, which is “cheap and cheerful” and “cute.” I never looked at the range 4 like that, but k!

8. Food is medicine.

When asking this episode’s disabled hero what he’d like to cook extra of, Antoni reminds him that you continually need health to be your most important focus. He points out that food is a remedy, after which asks, don’t we experience higher while we devour an amazing healthy meal than when we consume something that puts us in a meal coma? To which we’d say…

There’s nevertheless time and a place for a meal coma on occasion, Antoni. Judging using this very lengthy, very passionate sniff that Antoni gave a peach in the grocery save, he’d like to remind us that peaches smell extraordinary. IMHO, humans would stare in case you had this form of a moment with any piece of fruit within the grocery store, but a quick whiff may be an amazing manner to pick out your produce.

11. A precise spice series continues your food from getting boring.

Antoni recommends rounding out your spice series to keep away from the “one-of-a-kind day, identical meal” doldrums.

12. Rotisserie chickens are flexible.

Sure, rotisserie chickens make for instant dinners. But, as Antoni factors out, you may additionally flip them into unique meal options, like a fowl salad.
