Pasta - boil with salt, not oil, oil makes the pasta gluggy.

Buy a rice cooker. Rinse the rice at least 3-4 times to wash the starch off before cooking.

Yes! When I was in Malaysia I asked somebody to teach me how to make really good rice. They looked at me like I was crazy and switched on their rice cooker. Apparently people don't use their pots any more.

coconut rice - use creamed coconut instead of coconut milk, especially when using brown rice.

Bachelor Stew - toss all ingredients and seasonings in your cupboard into one large pot and douse with two gallons of distilled water. Bring to boil then adjust to simmer. Drink and serve ice cold beer all day long and then dole out the mushy meatless stew after everyone is thoroughly soused. Makes about one serving more, per person, than anyone will want to ingest. Great for those occasions where you don't wish to make a good impression.

It's obviously one of those Australian terms we all love to hear pronounced.

You know you really look like Sean Bean in that avatar Reprehensiballs. I'm sure I've mentioned it before.

Tip: do not turn steaks over and over on the bbq, it dries them out. Turn only once when nearly cooked through.

Do not prick sausages, all the juice and flavour runs out. They will not split if you cook them slowly. Never buy any which has "meat" as the main ingredient listed puke

Where are your tips smarty pants chef?

Let the steaks come up to temperature before putting on the grill so that they don't stick. About 30/45 minutes.

When in doubt, wash it out. And add alcohol - lots of it.

Use a box grater to grate frozen butter into biscuit (I don't mean cookies) dough. This helps them turn out really light and fluffy.
