If you feel like cooking isn’t for you, or you just get super flustered in the kitchen, these 5 simple hacks will help you be a better cook!
1. STAY SHARP
Sharper knives are actually safer, since you can be more accurate.
2. FEEL THE HEAT
Add ingredients to hot oil for best results. And always preheat your oven.
3. COME UNSTUCK
Stop food burning and sticking to the bottom of the pan with a splash of water (or wine or stock).
4. CHECK THE SEASONING
Don’t leave salt and pepper until last. Adding them during cooking will build flavour.
5. TRUST YOUR TASTE BUDS
Adjust ingredients and quantities to your preferences – you’re the one eating it at the end of the day!
