So you have found a great recipe, you’ve gone down the shops and you’ve bought all of the ingredients. You get back all eager to cook a great meal then you realise that you have no idea what to cook it all in. Here are a few things no budding chef should be without in the kitchen.
A good frying pan – most of us will have a frying pan but few of us will have a really good one. A non-stick frying pan can really be the difference between creating a good meal and a great one.
A good knife – There is a significant difference between tearing up meat or vegetables and slicing through it. Getting a good quality sharp knife will make the difference between an easy preparation of food or a difficult one.
A good quality cooker – Gas is great, electric can be frustrating. Making sure you have a clean, good quality cooker can make sure that any meal is cooked to perfection.
Good pots and pans – make sure they are clean, big enough for what you want to do with them and most of all make sure that they are kept in a good condition to make sure the food remains the same.
An apron – You may want your food to be great but you probably don’t want it to get on your expensive clothes so get a good apron and you won’t have to worry about wearing your food, only eating it.
A good chopping board – Make sure it is clean again, wooden ones are generally the best and make sure that they are big enough for what you want to be chopping on it with your nice new sharp knife.
Follow the steps and the only thing which could go wrong will be down to human error (which I am sure would not happen!).
