This entry of the 101 Things series is for the cook, from novice to expert, and is applicable whether you're at home or work in the food service industry.

A few of my favorite entries include, "Five Knives do 95 percent of the work," "Fresh fish smells like the water it came from, old fish smells like fish," "Boil, shock, drain (pertaining to cooking vegetables)," and "Don't hesitate to recommend a beer pairing (i.e. pairing isn't just for wines)."
