This Weeks “Happy Talk”!
Chef who has made food for the Queen shares his secret to cooking ‘perfect’ bacon.
An award-winning chef who has previously cooked meals for the Queen has claimed we’ve all been cooking bacon wrong.
But don’t worry, he’s kindly shared the ‘right’ way to do it and claims his method will give you ‘perfect’ bacon.
Jeff Baker says that a lot of people make a common mistake when cooking the meat and end up with it being very greasy.
the food expert revealed his secret, saying that it’s all to do with getting the pan nice and hot, rather than cooking the meat slow and steady.
By doing it this way, the bacon should caramelise, making it crispier and giving the meat a punchier flavour.
He explained: “I find that the best way to cook bacon is on a medium to high heat pan with a small amount of natural fat, searing it on each side for a minute or so.
“If the bacon is properly dry-cured and cut to a nice thickness, it should caramelise on the edges.
“The fat will then render without dissolving, resulting in delicious flavour.”
