Neil Perry's recipes
The Rockpool Dining Group chef shares his cooking tips:
1. The main difference between professional and home cooks is seasoning. If you learn to properly season with salt, you get food with great flavour.
2. Buy the best ingredients you can afford - the quality of the result is directly related to the quality you put in the dish.
3. Focus on never overcooking seafood. It will dazzle your friends.
4. Take notes on the dishes you cook - time, temperature and result - and next time use those to improve what you cook. It's about learning from mistakes, no matter how small or large.
