Welcome back to another cooking video, I’m
Chef Devaux. Today I’m going to teach you something amazingly simple.
I am going to show you guys how make something, but before we get started I just wanted to
say something. I understand a lot of you are foodies or food lovers, and you probably have
your own food blogs. If you don’t, an opportunity came across my desk to collaborate with a
bunch of other food channels and Squarespace.com, a place to create your own websites professionally
and simply. I thought this was a great opportunity for both me and you, for me to collaborate
with a bunch of other food channels, and for you to create a food blog if you are interested.
If you’re interested in getting a food blog then you can get a free trial and 10% off
by going to Squarespace.com/food. You enter your promo code which is Food. There will
be a link in the description below. Basically what I am going to be doing with
these other food channels is changing the motto of Squarespace from a better website
that starts with you to a better website that starts with your food. We also will create
videos just about simple stuff or inspired by Squarespace. This is going to be my video,
I’m going to get going now and at the end of this video you can check out all their
other videos by clicking on the link below. Let’s get going, you start off by taking
a bunch of chilies and just removing them because you only need one. You cut it in half
but leaving on the stalk part of it, then you just turn it and cut that in half again.
That will leave you with four pieces and all connected to the top part of the chili. Now
what you want to do is you want to take a very sharp knife and drag just the tip of
it through each of these four parts you just cut, to cut them again in half, to create
eight petals. You have to be very careful not to damage the other ones or cut through
the inner part of the chili. Drag it through very carefully and very precisely. There we
go, that’s all been cut. Now you just take this and you put it into
ice cold water, just like this. This is going to take about 30 to 40 minutes to happen,
so here we’re going to just fast-forward to now.
Okay, what’s going to happen is the water is going to enter the inner chili cells and
they are going to engorge with water and expand, the skin is going to remain the same. This
pushes the leaves outwards, or the petals outwards, just like this. What you are seeing
takes literally 30 to 40 minutes. Once it’s done that’s basically it, the fire bloom
is done. Then you literally just pull it out of the water and just put it to one side.
I call it a fire bloom because I asked my Facebook fans what they thought it should
be called and the highest voted suggestion was fire bloom, made by fan Panmata Von Blade.
Thank you very much Panmata, I really appreciate your input. If you guys want to also vote
something up next time or see photos before the video comes out, then go like the Facebook
page. You can check it out by searching MakeSushi1 on Facebook.
This is the end of the video, I hope you enjoyed this very short quick tutorial. One little
tip is do not touch your face or hands, anything up here once you have cut the chilies. It
will burn. With what I said before, I was thinking a lot of you probably have food blogs
already, if you do I would love to look at them or see them or just check them out. Write
down below the link to your food blog if you have one. If you don’t then don’t worry,
maybe write down the link to the food blog you love the most, just say it isn’t yours
if it isn’t yours. Thanks for watching, I hope you enjoyed this
and see you next week. Oh wait, wait, wait – hold it, hold it!
