3 simple techniques to improve your kitchen ability

For those who may not have much time to cook at home outside of preparing meals for the family, experimenting, as a home cook would, may not be something that feels possible. In order to save time, this can leave you creating meals as quickly as you can, continually eating the same things, and relying on convenience foods perhaps more often than we’re comfortable with.

Now, there’s no shame in bringing a frozen pizza to the table or to order takeout when you need to, nor do you need to justify however much time you can spend in the kitchen just because someone you follow on Instagram seems to create beautiful meals six times a day.

Perhaps you may not have ever really focused on learning how to cook a range of meals instead of some home comforts. Again, there’s nothing wrong with this. However, it can be nice to expand our repertoire when we have the time for it, or to try and find joy in cooking so that following the extra mile makes sense. In this post, we’ll discuss three simple techniques that can improve your kitchen ability in the best way:

Perfect The Basics

It’s a shame how many people under-value the supreme benefit that comes from perfecting the basic meals we otherwise enjoy. Comfort food deserves to be looked at with care, too. For instance, this gooey mac and cheese recipe made with pub cheese can showcase how it’s the additional measures that allow cooking to shine. No matter if this means rubbing garlic cloves on your olive-oil stained sourdough, or learning how to rest meat properly before cooking it, if you can perfect a simple meal, perhaps your favorite, then immediately you can transfer those additional skills elsewhere.

Inspire Your Spice & Herb Rack

Those who know how to wield spices and herbs appropriately have figured out 50% of how to become a great cook. From learning which tastes go with which ingredients, such as parsley used on new potatoes, or just the right amount of cumin used in a chili, as well as learning a better combination of spices (there is nothing quite like Indian cooking learnt at home to help solidify these lessons), the more you can source fresh spices and herbs and use them with care and reverence, the more your cooking game explodes in possibility.

Befriend Your Appliances

It’s healthy to befriend your appliances from time to time, as it were, and to make sure that you truly do understand their operation. From air fryers to slow cookers, or simply knowing that a potato peeler can be used both ways and more easily via that swiping direction, reading the manuals, testing out recipes, perfecting the timing, this can help your cooking approach become better and more endearing than ever. You may be deeply surprised as to just how well this approach can work.

With this advice, we believe you’ll be able to perfect your kitchen ability in the best possible light.
