Practical advice

Oils and fats
Always use oil that can withstand high
temperature.
Do not mix different types of oil or fat.
Change the oil or fat when it becomes brown
after cooking.
Preparing the food
Whatever the recipe used, the food must be
perfectly dry. this will avoid overflowing and
make the oil or fat last longer.
When preparing potato-based food (chips,
crisps, etc.), cut them up and then wash
them in cold water to remove the starch. Dry
them carefully. This will stop them sticking
together.
