      Now treat that knife with respect, clean it properly, hone it properly, sharpen it once in awile , get a set of wetstones, buy some cheaper knifes to practice angling and pressure on, get a few diffrent cheap ones, that way you can learn to adjust your pressure and angle as needed when you finaly go on to apply regulary with your main knifes. would also be a pretty nice episode perhaps, maintaining equipment, pans pots castiron stainless-steel copperbottom-pots/pans, ceramic coverd and non-sticks, cover diffrences and how to maintain them etc, along with knifes and whatnot. i think people would appreciate that knowledge, it may be simple and logical for alot of people on how to maintain your tools, and what usecase each type of pot/pan etc has, benefits drawbacks and all . But its always good to inform people thorougly on this subject, atleast for the younger generations.

      raw potatoes need to be hot water drenched then salt dryed before pan frying. also, a large dose of butter and a squint of oil would be helpful to quicken thing up!

    15. Sid Bray

      Salt makes water boil slower actually.

    17. Graham Sutherland

      Regarding the "potatoes browning in air" thing, potatoes oxidise due to an enzyme called polyphenol oxidase (PPO), which is heavily abundant in the cells on the outer layers of the potato. It's not exposure to air that does it, but rather the damage to the potato cells when you cut into it - the name "oxidised" comes from the action of the PPO, not the air. The PPO is released from the cells and mixes with amino acids and other products from the damaged cells, producing brown pigments. The pigments then get drawn into the porous surface of the potato and effectively dye the potato brown/black. Dropping the potato into water dilutes the PPO and other products sufficiently to prevent the formation of pigments in a significant enough quantity to be visible. Equally, when you cook the potatoes, you denature the enzyme and it can no longer function, thus no browning. This is also why flash-frozen potatoes don't brown until they thaw; the PPO enzyme doesn't work at very low temperatures. As an aside, the dyes produced from PPO are actually blue (they're quinones) but when they mix with the colour of the potato you get that weird murky brown. You might think that this is how some species of potato and plants get their natural (or bred-in) blue or purple colour, but this is much more commonly from anthrocyanins which can produce some very brilliant blues and purples. Weirdly they're also quite useful pH indicators, and the acidity or alkalinity of the vegetable's cells is often what selects the specific colour.

      Vinegar does not kill bacteria babby

      1. Mistress Succubus

        Mike Krombopulus Vinegar does kill bacteria. It's the chef alternative to bleach.

    24. Ayden Simpson

      Lesson learned: When you overcook something, just say "Oh yeah, we got some nice color on that" with moderate confidence.

    25. Alyssa Gilbert

      I made the chicken tacos with the rajas con crema last night! It was incredible. My entire family told me I have to make it once a week now! My sister said " I want to have this again, but like really soon". Thank you for this recipe and video. I can't wait to try the other tacos.

      Threw together some pan fried chicken breasts with lime and a spicy chimichurri with some sweet quick pickled red onions over toasted tortillas and damn it was good. I had undercooked my thick ass chicken breast a little bit on accident so I threw it back in the fond-ridden pan after cutting it up thinly and damn it made it so much better, especially when I deglazed with a little of the onion vinegar. Probably the best boneless skinless chicken breasts I’ve ever had. I just seasoned with salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne, and lime juice.
