Become The Cook You've Always Dreamed To Be

Did you know that less than half the Millennial generation cooks? And by cooking, please understand actually preparing their meal, instead of relying on processed foods and pre-made meal packs. This is even more terrifying when you think that they are some modern families today where young children have never eaten properly cooked food, ad only live on processed packs. A few years ago Jamie toured through the USA and discovered that some families had never cooked and didn’t even know how to, more importantly, they were burdened by obesity and many other food-related troubles. Britons too are likely to suffer a similar fate if we don’t embrace the pleasure of simple cooking again. More importantly, people need to be reminded that the kitchen is not the enemy and that cooking can be a lot easier and enjoyable than they think. So are you ready for a cooking challenge that will blow your mind away?

You Can’t Cook In A Messy Kitchen

As simple as it may sound, you need to stage the scene, Nobody can work well in a messy study, and the same argument is valid for your kitchen too. Before you start cooking, you need to make sure that your kitchen is as organised as it can be. In short, it’s about getting rid of everything that you don’t need, and that is gathering dust on the side. As a materialist population, we tend to naturally accumulate more than we need, so it’s time to look through your pans, small electric appliances, and cookware to define what you use and what you don’t use. Small kitchens tend to rely on wall storage to keep the room clean and organised, hanging down pans and other cooking utensils. Additionally, it’s good to use labelling and organisers to keep everything at its place and know where everything is.

Make Sure You’ve Got What You Need

Another rule of cooking is just as simple: You need the right utensils to cook. But beware, this doesn’t mean that you should use it as an excuse to increase your pan collection. Indeed, it’s about having only one quality item instead of several of lower quality, from a stylish kitchen sink to chef knives. While at first, buying quality kitchenware might seem like a high investment, in the long term it means that you are more likely to enjoy spending time in a clean and clear room that has items that you are happy using.

It’s A Learning Process

Last, but not least, cooking is a learning process. You may not become an expert by tonight, but you can certainly try your hand at easy recipes until you feel more confident. Don’t worry about messing up a recipe: Instead, try to figure out what went wrong so that you can avoid any issue in future. Cooking is not a difficult activity, but it’s something that you need to invest time into to improve. You will rapidly find that sorting out a carbonara pasta dinner or baking a soufflĂ© will become easier as you practice. Remember: Everyone, even chefs, starts somewhere.
