Chef Gerrie Bielefeld
The Fabulous Five 
When Chef Gerrie Bielefeld thinks about the magical culinary methods of expressions of the art, she goes back to what she calls The Fabulous Five - the five basic cooking methods: Poaching, Braising; Sautéing and Frying. Each of these techniques results in a finished product with their own flavor profile, texture, and appearance. The secret to the fabulous five is the magic that these cooking methods produce. They are universal, used within every culture and cuisine. If you understand these methods to the whole cooking puzzle, you can cook just about anything.
