The chef's knife is probably a cook's most important tool. And given the amount of time it spends in your hand, it's definitely worth making sure you have a good one. Good knife skills help improve the quality of the food you cook by ensuring uniform cooking times and making it look nicer.

Choosing the correct cooking method not only impacts the final product, but also affects the texture, appearance and flavor of the dish. Cooking methods can be broken down into 2 categories: dry heat and moist heat.
Dry heat cooking refers to any cooking technique where the heat is transferred to the food item without using any moisture. Dry-heat cooking typically involves high heat, with temperatures of 300°F or hotter.
Moist heat cooking methods include any techniques that involve cooking with moisture — whether it's steam, water, stock, wine or some other liquid.
Whether you're preparing a feast far in advance or whipping up a quick dinner, once you've mastered these basic cooking methods, it will be easy to pair ingredients with their appropriate cooking techniques.
