Hell's Kitchen Ultimate Cooking Tips


Tip 1: Vinny Accardi

Don't shock pasta in water after cooking! Take the pasta out a minute or 2 early, drain the water, coat with oil and let cool on a tray. It keeps the starch inside the pasta and helps the sauce stick to the pasta.

Tip 2: Salvatore Coppola

Always remember, even after draining pasta, it's still cooking! If you are planning on mixing your pasta in sauce, this will also continue to cook it. It's important to consider this in overall preparation time, especially if you'd like the pasta al dente. Save some pasta water because it can be helpful when cooking pasta and use garlic and oil sauce, or some orecchiette with broccoli rabe and anchovies. The pasta water will help the dish not dry up and maintain flavor.

Tip 3: Jim McGloin

When cooking pasta, make sure to salt the water. It should taste like the ocean.
