What is your favourite technique and why?

probably simmering for foods that are asked for boiled are rarely good if you actually boil them for any length of time. Keeping a pot just under the boil needs a bit of attention but the results in ham, beef, fish or even veg are noticeably better. Also it is regularly the small points which make a difference in cooking - no point a wonderful relish to partner your shin of veal if the meat has the texture of boiled rags
