Finish your cooking in the oven

Finishing food with a strong heat blast in the oven adds a lot to the flavor of the food.

Did you know a roast can be made to perfection using a large roasting pot? Start on the cooktop burner, in this case from cold (yes let’s break the rules), letting it cook slowly and covered until nearly done. Then remove the cover and give it a good ten minutes roasting in a scorching hot oven, by using the grill at full power. The taste is fantastic.

And here is one more tip: make sure your pot has metal handles, not plastic! Otherwise your family and neighborhood might notice that your experiment went wrong.
