This may be a fairly simple recipe, but to someone just starting to cook, it could mean the difference between an ok first dinner party where you might serve carrots heated up in water & an ALRIGHT dinner party that people really like eating.

Any small thing you can do to a meal to enhance the flavor will be much more rewarding.
Hope you enjoy.
