A food hack is a way to make something that normally takes a long time or requires a lot of ingredients into something that only takes a few minutes and uses very few ingredients. This is what makes it so great!
Hi there! I’m Jim and I love cooking but The first thing I do when I start a new recipe is to look at the ingredient list. If it has too many ingredients, and some you may not have here of – e.g cloves of star anaise? So I know it will take me a long time to get all the ingredients let alone tomake. So thats why I have done a whole series of “food substitute or altenatives” to make my life and hopefully you life easier.Jimbo – “learning to cook”
