Earlier this week I had a discussion with my cuisine teacher and he told me that he was very irritated and upset because a lot of the students today lack the will to understand the product that they are working with. That we are simply putting something up on a plate and making it look nice without considering the work and function of the different products that we have used. Something I can imagine beeing a commun mistake know a days considering all the perfect plates that we see on Instagram and what not. I would like to know as much as possible of the products that I use, so that I can use them in the best way possible. But there is a lot to go through. I know my self as beeing quite impatient, and wanting to know and do everything at the same time and I get somehow overwhelmed by all the things I'd like to know about. (Do you understand the feeling haha?)
What I actually wanted to know is HOW do you guys gather knowlege and get to know the products that you use in the kitchen? Which kind of potato is best for maching and which for making fries?....and so on.... Were should I begin? I know ofcourse that using the product is one of the best ways, but I'm just curious to know how different people work.
Thanks for your answers :D :D
