At Handy Cookbook, we believe that understanding cooking techniques is as important as having access to great recipes. That’s why we’ve created a comprehensive guide to help you master essential cooking techniques.

Knife Skills

One of the most important skills in the kitchen is having good knife skills. A sharp knife and proper technique will make prep work more efficient and safer. At Handy Cookbook, we have a detailed guide on how to hold and use a knife, different cuts such as dicing, julienning, and chiffonading, and how to properly care for your knives to keep them in top shape.


Sautéing is a common technique used to cook food quickly over high heat with a small amount of fat. It’s commonly used for vegetables, meats, and seafood. At Handy Cookbook, we’ll teach you how to achieve the perfect sauté by selecting the right pan, heating the pan correctly, and selecting the right oil.


Roasting is a dry heat cooking technique used for meats, poultry, fish, and vegetables. It results in a crispy exterior and tender interior. At Handy Cookbook, we’ll show you how to properly prepare ingredients for roasting, how to set the oven temperature, and how to achieve the perfect texture and flavor.


Braising is a moist heat cooking technique where food is seared and then slowly cooked in liquid over low heat. It’s great for tough cuts of meat and results in tender and flavorful dishes. At Handy Cookbook, we’ll teach you how to properly sear meat, select the right braising liquid, and achieve the perfect tenderness.

These are just a few of the essential cooking techniques you can master with the help of Handy Cookbook.

Tips and Tricks for Efficiency in the Kitchen

Cooking can be a fun and rewarding experience, but it can also be time-consuming and stressful. That’s why we’ve compiled our top tips and tricks for making the most out of your time in the kitchen. As your trusted kitchen resource, Handy Cookbook is here to help you become a more efficient and productive cook.

1. Plan Ahead

One of the most effective ways to save time in the kitchen is to plan ahead. Take some time at the beginning of the week to plan your meals, make a grocery list, and prep ingredients in advance. This will save you time and stress during busy weeknights when you’re short on time.

2. Optimize Your Workspace

A cluttered and disorganized workspace can slow you down and make cooking more difficult. Keep your kitchen organized and free of clutter by regularly decluttering and wiping down surfaces. Keep frequently used tools and ingredients within arm’s reach, and consider investing in space-saving appliances to maximize counter space.

3. Use Time-Saving Techniques

There are many time-saving cooking techniques that can help you reduce your cooking time without sacrificing flavor. Consider using a slow cooker for soups and stews, or invest in a pressure cooker for quick and easy meals. You can also save time by cooking in larger batches and freezing leftovers for later.

4. Clean As You Go

A messy kitchen can be overwhelming and make cooking less enjoyable. Make cleaning a part of your cooking process by cleaning as you go. Wash dishes and wipe down surfaces as you finish using them, and enlist help from family members to make the process faster and more efficient.

5. Stay Organized

Staying organized is key to being an efficient home chef. Keep your pantry and fridge organized, label ingredients and leftovers with dates, and make a habit of regularly checking expiration dates to avoid wasting food.
