The best way to become a better chef is with practice, no one can deny that. But there are a few kitchen techniques that are best learned with a little help from the pros. Because we can’t all go to culinary school or work in a professional kitchen, it’s difficult to find one-on-one instruction for something like cooking the perfect steak or making pork cracklings. Which is exactly why we’re a little obsessed with Salted TV.
Salted is a new type of cooking school. Created with 50 master chefs from across the country, it’s a unique, visually-driven way of learning to cook that features beautifully edited HD videos that focus on everything from the basics, like how to make grits, to advanced techniques going on behind the scenes in some of the country’s best kitchens. Each video is tagged as easy, intermediate or advanced, so there really is something for home cooks of all skill levels. If you’ve ever dreamed of going to culinary school but can’t spend the time or money, Salted teaches valuable lessons you can access online from the comfort of your own kitchen.
