Adam Liaw's recipes
Adam Liaw shares his cooking tips: 1. Use fewer ingredients. There is a tendency, especially in Asian dishes, to throw every ingredient we have into a pot, wok or pan. The fewer ingredients we use, the cleaner and more distinctive the final flavours.
2. Rest (just about) everything. Most foods - including roasts, salad dressings, stir-fries, stews and curries - will benefit from a bit of time between preparing and serving.
3. Divide the task of making a meal into preparing, cooking and serving, and finish each stage before moving on to the next. If you're still hastily cutting vegetables while something is cooking in a pan you'll feel rushed, the food will suffer and your kitchen will look like a disaster zone.
4. The goal should always be to enhance the natural flavours already present in the ingredients we choose.
