Don't Be Afraid to Feel Your Food

Sometimes your hands can be the best tools, better than a pair of tongs or a spatula. When tossing salads of dainty greens and perfectly cut vegetables, don't crush them with metal tongs, instead drizzle the dressing or vinaigrette and toss gently with your hands to mix.

When grilling, instead of cutting a piece of meat open to determine the doneness feel it you don't want any of the flavorful juices seeping out. Touch with your index finger, it should feel like your earlobe for rare, like the tip of your noise for medium, and like your chin for well done.
