Practice flipping without fear
Although this technique is quite common, not everyone is capable of performing it successfully. The key is in the practice, but of course, we do not want to waste our food practising.
To be able to practice without risks, take a handful of dried vegetables (beans, chickpeas…) put them in the pan and start practising without fear. If you are a bit clumsy, the worst that can happen is that you throw a few beans on the ground. If you do this practice for a few minutes over three or four days, you will control the technique like a professional and you will be able to amaze your guests.
The key to success
Many people when they try to flip the food do it in the wrong way, with movements from top to bottom. Big mistake! The movement of the pan must be almost horizontal, from front to back and quick. We leave you a video so you can see it, in this case, they use cheese hooks… more typical of the Anglo-Saxon world.
Keep in mind that not all pans are suitable for turning food, if they have walls at a 90º angle it will cost you much more than usual.
