This week’s five cool tips brings you the knowledge you need when it comes to making mean cuisines.

Khmer cuisine
It is both easy and delicious to recreate Khmer dishes such as SomlohKorKo, Nom BanhChhouk, and TeoukKroeung. All include a complex combination of delicious flavours and spicy taste. A typical meal includes three or four separate dishes that together achieve a careful balance of sweet, sour, salty and bitter flavors.

European cuisine
European food is different from Khmer cuisines because the most widely used ingredients in western food arecheese, cream, and butter. Most western foods don’t need seasoning and westerners often prefer fast food such as pizza, hamburgers, and sandwiches, which are suitable for the conditions and climates in those country. Even though it is different in term of flavour, these foods are often a matter of personal taste.

Rub out the chemical substances
Nowadays, people are really concerned about whether certain chemicals in foods cause health hazards. Here are some tips for avoiding consumption of pesticides and other chemicals. To clean your vegetables before cooking them, wash them in water several times and then leave them to soak for 20 to 30 minutes in water with a teaspoon of salt. Afterwards, rinse them again in normal water.

Manage your kitchen
There are seven strategies that can assist to keep your kitchen clean and tidy: tossing anything you don’t use, replacing things that don’t work, storing frequently-used objects in easy to reach locations, creating centres of activity and storing related utensils near where they will be used, clearing the counter, making a list, tackling the paper and cleaning as you go.

Just a pinch of salt
Everyone needs some salt to function, but are you aware of how much salt is in the food you eat on a daily basis, and do you know the ways in which sodium can affect your health? Although an appropriate amount of salt can benefit one’s health, excessive salt can be hazardous. Excessive salt intake has been linked to high blood pressure, which is a contributor to heart disease and stroke. High sodium levels can also make people more prone to kidney stones, osteoporosis, cirrhosis and even stomach cancer.
