26 Useful Cooking Lessons From International Cuisines

“Even a small amount of it in scrambled eggs, to sauté vegetables, or to finish off homemade sauces makes a world of difference to the flavor and texture.”

Cuisines from around the world are all different, yet they all rely on certain techniques and lessons that can be adopted and applied to your home cooking. So Redditor u/CreatureWarrior asked “What are some cool and useful things different cuisines have taught you?” Here’s what people said.

(And I loved this question so much, I even threw in a few of my own responses.)

1.

“Cooking dishes from Indian cuisine really showed me that being vegetarian or introducing more plant-based dishes into your routine really doesn’t have to be that hard. Moreover, vegetarian dishes can be just as tasty as those containing meat. Indian cooking taught me that using ‘fake meats’ really isn’t necessary at all. I was so intrigued by some meatless Indian dishes like Punjabi Rajma Masala (kidney bean curry) that I realized I need to further explore the potential of veggies.”

2.

“Learning how to make the specific Italian dish cacio e pepe helped me understand the meaning of ‘less is more.’ This dish is just pasta, good olive oil, fresh black pepper, and Parmesan cheese, but these simple ingredients work together to create something so delicious.”

3.

“Thai cuisine really taught me how to balance strong flavors. Thai style salads (called ‘yum’) are so diverse, but they always share the same flavor profile: they are salty, spicy, sour, sweet and umami all at once. The way you achieve this complexity all comes down to learning how to balance ingredients rather than shy away from them or reduce them.”

4.

“Cooking Italian cuisine taught me the magic of anchovies and anchovy paste. These flavor-packed little fish get an unfair reputation. While on their own, they may be off-putting to some people, they add a salty depth of flavor to so many dishes, from aiolis and pastas to roasted vegetables and dressings. I cook with them all the time now.”

What Twin Cities chefs from around the world are cooking for Thanksgiving

In many Minnesota households this Thanksgiving, the main meal is all about turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes — or Venezuelan hallacas, Mexican mole, Indian bread pudding and Jamaican jerk-spiced turkey. Six Twin Cities chefs who hail from around the globe tell us, in their own words, what’s on their Thanksgiving tables.

Interviews have been edited and condensed.

Chef Soleil Ramirez at her restaurant, Arepa Bar, with hallacas, a Venezuelan holiday dish
she’ll be serving for Thanksgiving.

My grandpa was born in New York, so in my family, we always have a little bit of Venezuela and a little bit of American culture. For Thanksgiving, we get together and cook the turkey, but we actually eat our Christmas food. So it’s a little bit of both countries mixed in.

There are three or four items we always make. One of them is hallacas. I think hallacas represent Venezuela 100%. Hallacas were made a very long time ago when the Spaniards came to what they called the Indian islands, and Venezuela was a part of that. The Spaniard people would throw away all their leftovers, and the slaves and native people weren’t able to eat any of that. They didn’t have enough food or water or anything. So they started to pick from the floor from the leftovers people threw away, and they started to wrap all these up in plantain leaves and hide it in the ground. And of course, corn, in South America, grows everywhere. So they started to make a dough with corn, and would mix the dough with all these leftovers. And that is what we call today hallacas. It was like surviving, you know?

Soleil Ramirez makes hallacas for Thanksgiving both at home and at her restaurant, Arepa Bar.

It’s pork, beef, chicken, raisins, olives, almonds, capers. All of this is cooked in red wine and it’s kind of a stew, but thicker. It’s called guiso. And the plantain is used to wrap all of this up. People think Venezuelan food is similar to Mexican food, and
