Best piece of cooking advice
The best piece of cooking advice was one I read from Martha Stewart. So the pie isn’t perfect? Cut it into wedges. Stay in control, and never panic.
My Escali kitchen scale! I bought it seven years ago and, though I use it weekly, it still looks brand new. Using a scale allows me to accurately measure ingredients without dirtying measuring cups. Win!
