Things Your Grandmother Should Have Taught You

Reheating pizza:

Unless you like your pizza plasticky with a hint of cardboard, reheat in the oven, not the microwave. Microwaving overheats the cheese, making it bubble up into a solidified mess, and hardens the crust. Baking in the oven for 10/15 minutes (~140 ºC) should do it; depends on how melted you like your cheese.

Stale bread:

Make panzanella! Chop up tomatoes, red onion and cucumbers ,and toss with small chunks of bread in a 1:2 red wine vinegar–olive oil mixture. Leave for 20/30 minutes, then add basil.

Graham-cracker crust:

Some American recipes (usually for pies) call for a graham-cracker crust, which is super-easy, except that we don’t have graham crackers in New Zealand. Wheat digestive biscuits work as an okay substitute, but if the recipe you’re using (there are hundreds online) doesn’t call for cinnamon, add some. Make sure your pie dish is well buttered before pressing the mixture in.

: First tutorial of the year. When I open the door, I underestimate my strength, thinking it to be all used up in my journey here. It swings open violently and I trip into the room where awkward gazes greet me. Frozen, my legs are lead and I’m stuck on display for too long. My ov
