Unlike the sites online that offers a myriad of different cooking recipes managed by professional cookery magazines or channels. The Cook Awesome site is a personally maintained best cooking recipes website for those who believe leisure starts at home (especially the kitchen!).

Almost every recipe shared on the site has been tried, tasted or tested by me or the professional chefs who help me in choosing the best recipes for the site.

Useful tips

Slicing Onion

Cut the onion in half lengthways, then cut off the root end and the tip.

Cut the ready onion lengthways into slices

For onion rings, first cut the tip from the whole onion. Then cut the onion across into thin, even slices

Chopping Onions

Halve the onions lengthways and make a vertical cut to just above the root.

Make several fine horizontal incisions in each portion of half onion.

Finely, hold the onion firmly and slice thinly; it will fall into fine dice.

A raw sauce or uncooked mixture of vegetables or fruits is called “Salsa Crudo”. It is easy to create your own vegetable combinations of flavor. A good basic start for a salsa crudo is chilies, peppers, garlic and onion. Serve grilled lamb, fish, chicken or pork.

Salsa Crudo

Salsa Crudo

Peel, deseed or trim all the vegetables as desired, then use a sharp knife to cut them into small, even dice. Try to combine the texture and color as well as taste and use chilies and other spicy ingredients sparingly. Put all the diced ingredients into a bowl.

Add 1-2 tbsp olive oil and squeeze of lemon juice and stir in finely chopped fresh basil, parsley or mint to enrich the flavor. Add salt and pepper to taste and toss well before serving.

Clear butter is ideal for serving with vegetables such as artichokes or asparagus. Clarified butter is the butter that has been melted and all the salt, moisture and impurities removed, making it clear, rich pure flavor. Clarified butter is called Ghee in India. It is used in Indian cooking; it can be kept longer and can be heated to higher temperatures than ordinary butter without the risk of burning.  It can be used for sautéing and sauces as it gives a mild flavor and high gloss.

There are two important method of clarifying butter.

Place the butter in a saucepan with an equal amount of water. Heat until the butter melts. Remove the pan from heat and let it cool until the butter is sets. Carefully lift out the fat, leaving the water and solids behind.

Alternatively, melt the butter in a small pan over very low heat then skim then skim off the froth with a perforated spoon. Pour the rest through a sieve lined with fine muslin, to strain out the solids.

Making Savory Butters

Flavored butters can be shaped or piped decoratively to serve with grilled steaks or poached or frilled fish.

To make an herb-flavored butter, finely chop your choice of fresh herbs, Beat the butter until softened then stirs in the herbs and mix evenly.

What We Try To Offer You

Our prime concern is to offer everyone a taste from the wide variety of foods eaten around the globe. While many sites aim at offering home-cooked specialty family recipes. The cook awesome site, in addition to the traditional recipes also want to offer my viewers new tastes and flavor combinations. It will certainly arouse their taste buds and inspire them to try out new and exciting flavors and tastes.

Today’s cooking is mostly about fusing foreign tastes and cuisines with local tastes. And that is what I am trying to do here. Whenever I tasted something good anywhere during my travel. I always try to imitate the cooking or flavor sometimes in the exact similar manner (well almost exact). Sometimes with a blend of some local flavors to make it more acceptable for the local taste buds.

Following the same line, cook awesome site offers some of the newest, most exciting recipes. Our team with the help of a few professional chef friends managed to conjure up and which have been praised by everyone it was offered to.

This site is a way to extend my life long findings and food experimentations to all the food lovers out there, who have not been able to taste the different flavors I had the chance to.

Since my aim is to offer more and more diverse recipes to everyone, I am open to any suggestions and comments of readers that they might have for improving the site or the recipes. Enjoy the recipes and let us know what you think about it!
