Welcome to L’Academie de Cuisine! We are a passionate team of food lovers dedicated to bringing you the best in cooking and culinary experiences that can make your life much easier and more comfortable.
Our website was founded in 2017 by our Lead Author, Jamie Scott, and has since grown into a thriving online community where food enthusiasts can find delicious recipes, in-depth food and drink guides, substitutes, taste comparisons, and essential cooking tips/appliances.
Our goal is to inspire and educate our readers by providing trustworthy and high-quality content that adds value to their lives.
Lacademie.com was created out of a deep love for food and a desire to share the joy of cooking with others. Jamie, our founder, wanted to create a platform where food enthusiasts could connect, learn, and grow their culinary skills.
Over the years, our website has evolved into a thriving online community where readers can explore the world of cuisine and discover new favorite recipes. Today, our website boasts over 1,200 recipes and attracts a million of hungry visitors per month.
Moreover, you can find other food- and kitchen-related posts to make your work in the kitchen hassle-free and enjoyable.
Our Vision, Missions, And Goals
All readers are deserved to read top-notch articles that can help them find the things they need or quickly solve their problems. From simple to fancy recipes, from cooking tips to other informative articles about worldwide cuisine, we have everything to make your culinary journey more enjoyable.
Therefore, our goal at Lacademie.com is for you to discover and fall in love with cooking, finding new favorite recipes that your whole family will enjoy. The ingredients we use are simple and easily accessible – not overly hoity-toity. We believe that if you can read (a well-written, tested, and trusted recipe), you can cook.
Plus, we understand that tracking down the best kitchen products on the Internet is time-consuming since there are countless models and variations available.
That’s why we strive to provide you with the most honest reviews for the best kitchen gadgets and appliances that we carefully pick up. Additionally, you can also have an excellent chance to read the most actionable tips as well as simple and practical recipes from professional chefs and experienced home cooks.
Neither do we choose the most feature-packed products nor the products with the most exquisite housing. We just pick up the product that we think is the best for most people. We bend over backward to seek the product that best fits into your daily lives.
It takes time and effort to find the best products because there are many overpriced products with many junk features that you scarcely use. And we don’t aim for these products. We spend lots of time flipping through customer reviews to find out what factors are essential. Then we can precisely pick up the items that really appeal to your needs.
Therefore, we only recommend high-quality, reasonably-priced products that are durable and stand the test of time. These are products we also use ourselves and recommend to our family and friends.

Common Myths About Kitchen Appliances
It is vital that you should understand how each appliance works, as various opinions can leave you confused. Now, let’s learn about some common myths that people usually have about kitchen appliances.
Myth #1: The Fridge Keeps Food Cold by Blowing Cold Air
In fact, the condenser of the fridge extracts hot air from the food and emits it into the atmosphere. No cold air is blown inside the machine. When you see that your fridge isn’t getting cold, it’s time for you to call the fridge repair expert.
Myth #2: Microwave Releases Harmful Radiation
A lot of people think that microwave releases harmful radiation. The truth is that microwave uses radiation to heat your leftovers. You would never expose yourself to dangerous radiation that’s aforementioned unless you were inside the microwave.
Myth #3: Vacuum Packaging Contains Harmful Chemicals That Can Be Transferred to Food
Vacuum bags are made of high and low-density polyethylene and polypropylene. These materials are the safest for vacuum cooking. There will be no harmful chemicals transferred to your food, so you do not need to worry.
Myth #4: Vacuum Cooking Increases the Risk of Food-Borne Illness
Vacuum cooking improves the margin of food safety as sufficient standards for cold storage are followed, and you also have to apply appropriate cooking temperature and cooking time when you use this cooking method. Additionally, because food is prepared prior to cooking, the risk of handling is reduced.
