Paris Hilton's lasagna, the unmissable video of a must-do recipe. Here's Cooking with Paris.
Paris Hilton he just debuted on YouTube with his first cooking tutorial: how to make lasagna. Just to read the news is there to be a little incredulous (will he really ever cook in his life?), But the famous heiress reassures us immediately. It is one of his main dishes, a recipe he prepared together with his mother. Nobody expects Paris Hilton to be a great cook, after all she is the first to declare that she has prepared hers famous lasagna only as a child.
15 minutes of pure entertainment, clumsy cooking steps and the timeless frivolity which made Paris Hilton a cult character. Businesswoman, singer, actress and now chef, Paris welcomes us with her little dog in her arms and her "chef's gloves". Let's go over the highlights.
The 6 mistakes of the Paris Hilton lasagna
1. Quantity and quality
The quantities of the ingredients do not exist. Going by eye is certainly a sign of great experience in the kitchen, but it would be useful to provide the weights to those who watch a tutorial, together with the quality most suitable (the meat item reads “any type of meat ". The result is an agglomerate of meat, cooked in a too narrow pan, and too much cooking liquid).
Paris's advice? There are many ways to decide the quantities: for example, Paris dusts the pepper 11 times, because it brings luck.
Paris chose the ready-made lasagna paste, the format wavy lasagna, among the most popular in America. We do not feel like criticizing the choice, since making fresh pasta by hand is not always the easiest and fastest choice. This type of pasta must first be cooked in water: if there is a mistake, it is certainly to put it in the pot when the water does not yet boil. Don't do it.
Paris isn't happy about grating mozzarella, which is too tiring, and recommends using the already grated mozzarella. We don't even know what it is, let's move on to the next point.
Paris uses a quintal of ricotta cheese, mixes it with random tools and also adds an egg to it. Don't do it. Meanwhile, the star explains that there are many types of cheese today, such as soy and almond, commenting that "it is not normal, but it is cool".
Paris teaches us how to get away when we don't have the suitable tools: how to mix ricotta with a knife and how to mince meat with a spatula. Unfortunately, it sins sparingly with salt and oil. He adds plenty of them and then eliminates some of them with his special technique: wet the kitchen paper and dab, removing the excess.
The classic preparation of ragù is not contemplated: Paris forgets garlic and onion for the sauté, there is no way to fix it. Fortunately, the Sun glasses that would protect us from tears when cutting the onion we can wear them anyway. In order not to miss anything, at some point Paris is also sprinkled with its refreshing unicorn scent.
Paris creates layers separated between the sheets of pasta, only with cheese or only ragù, without mixing the ingredients. Finally, cover the lasagna with aluminum foil to better cook the lasagna, distributing the heat evenly. It is not entirely crazy, but be careful not to leave it for the duration of cooking or it could compromise the formation of the inevitable crust.
In short, don't make the Paris Hilton lasagna. Make the lasagna like this.
