Dry herbs are fatal to a good salad, always use fresh ones.
Only the best quality of olive oil and vinegar are good for a delicious salad.
Mayonnaise and white sauce cream are not the only salad dressings.
Salad should be ready a few minutes before it is served.
It is the dressing that makes the salad, and not the salad that makes the dressing.
Honey mayonnaise ( 1 cup whipped cream and 1 tbsp honey) is excellent for fruit salads.
Before creaming sugar and fat together, keep spoon in boiling water for over five minutes.
If you wish the jam to be more delicious, do not remove the frothy scum which comes to the surface of jam or jelly mixture.
Don’t put icings or frostings on cakes before they are thoroughly cooled.
Do not stew fruit in an iron saucepan, because the action of acid on the fruit juice in the iron pan spoils flavour and colour of the fruit.
