Carving Tips

  • Choose only fresh vegetables with bright coloring when possible and crisp lettuce leaves.
  • Choose ripe but not overripe fruit.
  • When you use lettuce leaves, first put them in a deep dish and pour cold water over them. Leave the leaves in water for several minutes. Then wash the lettuce under running water and dry it with a clean towel.
  • It is better to oil olives, green peas, beans, corn before use. It will help keep them moist and they won’t wrinkle or shrink.
  • To increase lemons’ aroma, pour boiling water over them.
  • Peeled or cut apples won’t turn brown if you moisten them with lemon juice.
  • Vegetable and fruit dishes look and taste the best when cooked shortly before serving.
