Cooking is one of the arts that is mastered with continuous effort one puts into the act. It is not necessary that you need to cook every day for that, of course that does not hold good if you are a professional cook. When you are a home chef and wants to be master in the kitchen floor it is necessary to follow certain rules, which are nothing but to make you more organized and feel more passionate about what you love. Cooking is a stress buster for me. Though I cannot churn out lip-smacking dishes every day but, yes, most of the time I do. And I would love to mention and share the credibility with my better half, my wife, Manasi. Cooking is not a rocket-science and it can be made hassle-free by remembering few small things.
Cooking is a continuous learning process and you can master it with continuous learning. It is easy to give up when the recipe you try to prepare doesn’t go well in the first instance. But you should make a commitment of continuous learning – who knows you can master the art someday.
It is highly necessary to be attentive when you are cooking. Pay you 100% attention towards your act and do not allow anything like TV or internet surfing or talking over your mobile phone play a hindrance towards your passion of cooking.
This is the most important rule to be a good cook. It makes your effort of cooking easy if you keep all the things handy beforehand. This will help you avoid the last-minute running around.
Engage your taste buds
Your own taste buds are the guinea pig for your experiment. Don’t wait till the completion of the dish. Since the taste of any dish builds layer-by-layer keep on tasting every now-and-then to know what you need more.
Try to keep it simple
It is always better to start with the basics. Hence keep your cooking spree simple in the beginning and increase your proficiency level as you get experienced.
Take care of the shopping
Always remember that cooking doesn’t start in the kitchen. It starts with procuring the right ingredients in the right quantity. Hence invest some extra minutes and care in choosing the best ingredients would save you time and energy during cooking.
Having the right equipment
Having the right equipment is the key to success of your cooking spree. Before start cooking you need to know whether you need a wok or a skillet or a slow roaster for your recipe. Keep some basic equipment like chopping board, saucepan etc. at easy reach.
Keep stocks in your kitchen
Don’t think your kitchen as an ordinary one and always make your shopping list keeping your kitchen in mind. It’s always good to keep assessing the stocks in your kitchen so that you don’t be empty-handed at any point of time.
