Hello, this is my first post on the forum :)
I thought i'd ask what to me is an essential technique in the kitchen, I basically want to know if there are methods that I can practice and go through to have my hands better adapt to handle hot foods, my father (48) still works as a chef at a Chinese restaurant/takeaway and on days i'm reminded of how much of a pussy I am compared to him. He handles food (which are blazing hot to me) like its bloody frozen and just goes in without a seconds thought. I mean i'm at least able not to turn or run away when oil spits but when things like plates are microwaved for an extended time I can't hold it and same goes for plastic containers which explodes with steam as soon as you open it. Any exercises any of you can recommend (personally trialed?) would be a great help!!!
Thank you for your time.
