As we begin a new year, resolutions are being made (and possibly broken) all over the world, and one of your resolutions may be to cook more, or to add to your already existing repertoire of cooking skills. An important part of the cooking experience is finding the enthusiasm to get started, and it can be difficult to find that enthusiasm if your kitchen does not lend itself to it. Organisation If you have to search high and low in your kitchen for implements or ingredients, that can hinder the cooking process and experience, creating more stress than necessary. By ensuring that you know where all your important materials are, you can streamline your process and focus on enjoying the creative aspect of cooking. Appliances Having the right equipment is a key part of making the cooking experience enjoyable. Appliances can make some of the mundane tasks seem easy, and with the right equipment, your range of potential creations can be greatly increased. Think about the kind of dishes you want to cook, and then source the best appliances for these dishes. While buying appliances can be quite expensive, they can prove to be more than worth the price if they inspire you to cook. Worktop Space Once you have your tools and your ingredients, the issue of spacing them needs to be tackled. If you have many appliances, finding where to put them can be quite difficult, and you can end up with a very crowded worktop. Place them in order of usefulness – the most versatile appliances should take pride of place, and the ones that are only used for special dishes can be stored out of sight. This means you don’t have to keep moving things out of the way when you cook, and you don’t have to worry about extra clutter or mess.
