On this page are some links to pages with tips, tricks and basic recipes concerning kitchenware, serving and eating meals, cooking techniques, and preparing ingredients. The instructions are also meant to help those who are real beginners, so maybe they are too extensive for the more experienced cooks. If there are variations on a basic recipe, these are only described briefly. If you understand the basics, the rest will be clear enough. Clicking on a link opens a new window. Sometimes the basic recipe or instruction is part of a larger recipe, sometimes there is a separate page. Some of the pages have yet to be translated.
