Some chefs are riffing on the pork rind craze and frying other skins like chicken and beef to a crisp. The combination of chicken and waffles is making a comeback at various restaurants around the country, and some chefs are even plating waffles alongside other types of poultry. And who would’ve thought that the traditional snack fit for hikers, beef jerky, would also be popping up on menus? Pretzels are on their way out, and in their place you’ll find biscuits as the bread of the moment. On the cocktail front, we’ve been seeing tea-based cocktails coming into their own, as mixologists across the country are shaking them up.

To help you get ahead of the curve, we’ve rounded up our favorite up-and-coming cooking methods in the restaurant world. We're also sharing recipes from the chefs that use them, so that you, too, can be trendy in your own kitchen.

The Spruce / Danilo Alfaro

Many cooking instructors teach a technique that involves making horizontal cuts in the onion. But trust me, you don't want to do it this way — not ever! Even if your health insurance premiums are all up to date and you have a team of Red Cross volunteers standing by to give you a blood transfusion, don't do it!

Why? It's simple: Cutting sideways through an onion toward your own fingers is just ridiculously dangerous. You WILL cut yourself. Badly.

But even if you had titanium hands, there'd still be no reason to cut an onion this way. An onion's natural structure already has these horizontal cuts in it, so making more is just a waste of time. And then, when you consider that the inevitable result of using this technique is a trip to the emergency room — well, honestly — did I mention, "don't do it?"

OK, enough said about that. Now let's find out the right way to chop an onion.

(By the way, in step 5 I will reveal the cure to watery eyes from slicing onions.)

How Do You Create An Original Recipe?

My opinion would lie somewhere in the middle, while I may not necessarily agree that adapting a recipe by swapping out a few ingredients makes it totally 'brand new', I also understand that it's hard to make a dish 100% original. If creating original recipes in your kitchen is something you're interested in, but afraid to do, the most important thing, as with anything in this great culinary world, is to START SIMPLE. I wouldn't recommend popping by your local grocery store and picking up, oh, say some pork hock, an orange, eggplant, cayenne pepper and some ranch dressing, then getting home and thinking to yourself: 'Now, what should I do with this?' That probably won't end very well.

In my opinion, there are five fundamental things that really help a chef-at-home get a great start creating original recipes.

The 13 minute egg is one of the most popular ways to cook eggs because it's easy, fast, and the results are really great. This recipe gives it a brightness by serving it on top of a wilted spinach salad. This sweet and spicy glazed carrots recipe uses the sous vide machine to simplify the process of preparing a great side dish!
