A newbie can do well by understanding some cooking techniques like sautéing, simmering, marinating and so on. Sauteing means when you are cooking an item in oil or a flavored substance over medium heat; Simmering means when you are heating a substance to a high temperature near to boiling but not hot enough to create bubbles.
