Cooking Basics – The Key To Success In The Kitchen
When we speak of cooking basics we are really speaking of kitchen basics, but what do we mean by either?
The key to success in the kitchen, to preparing tasting appealing meals that you or your family will want to eat is how you set up your kitchen.
Parents often just give up and claim that they are allowing their children freedom of choice when it comes to eating healthy foods like vegetables, but if you prepare bland vegetables why would anyone want to eat them would you? We have taste buds and those taste buds are designed to enjoy eating.
It is up to the individual food preparer to make the meal taste good, not just palatable but good. Why do you think that restaurants do so well, it’s simple, because they prepare tasty meals, even fruits and vegetables.
The key to making food taste good starts with how you set up your kitchen, cooking basics. What are these basics?
Any well stocked and well supplied kitchen should start with basic kitchen tools such as measuring cups and spoons, knives for slicing and chopping, cutting boards, good quality pots and pans, and bakeware.
We also need the right ingredients on hand, you shouldn’t have to run out to the store whenever you want to prepare and cook a meal, especially since we all lead very busy lives. Some basic ingredients that every cook should on hand are flour, corn meal, different types of sugar, salt, black pepper and herbs and spices to dress up those vegetables and make them taste good. You also need to have some good quality cooking oil on hand, and no, not all meals should be prepared with the same standard cooking oil.
