Talking "cheffy"



Let's stop talking "cheffy."  Please. 

Not "brown off," just "brown."    

"Add," not "add in."  

"Reduce, not "reduce down."  

"Mix," not "emulsify." (Don't get me started on the poor understanding of this chemical term.  Trust me, you probably don't understand it.)

Anchovies disintegrate, not melt, in your skillet.   

Sugar dissolves, not melts, in water to make your simple syrup.  

And Lidia, we love you, but really, it's not "foil paper."

And while you're at it, stop stirring everything with tongs.  Use a spoon, ok?
