To anyone that has worked in catering or restaurant kitchens:
I am having a large party in a couple of weeks. I would like to prep as much as possible in advance.
My questions are:
Can I peel asparagus the day before cooking them. Typically, I store unpeeled asparagus in the refrigerator in a container with a little water in the bottom?
Can I store peeled potatoes in cold water in the refrigerator? Since I am making mashed potatoes will storing them as noted reduce the starch in the potatoes?
Thank you for any help you can offer.
