- Know every detail of the recipe
Before you start cooking, you have to prepare yourself that you are ready to cook. Also, put in your mind that everybody can cook no matter what. After you put yourself together, you can start to master the recipe thoroughly, what kind of ingredients that you need, what kind of tools that you need to prepare, what kind of pan that you need to use, and many more.
- Prepare the tools
There is a piece of wise advice that may be suitable for you. “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail”. So, you have to make sure that every tool required in the recipe is available in your kitchen. For example, you need a non-stick pan to make a pancake, the coating of the pan should be in good condition. Otherwise, your pancake will stick well in the pan and difficult to be flipped.
- Sharpen your knife
Believe us that a sharp knife will affect your whole mood while making a dish. Do not afraid of getting cut by a sharp knife. You can use it slowly and keep it in your mind that no one chasing after you.
- Wash and drain the ingredients
Do not ever skip this point, especially when you are cooking a meat-based dish. The meat should be perfectly clean and free from microorganisms because it may be giving an impact to your health.
You have to make sure that the meat is drained well before it makes a soft landing on your pan. Not only meat but also other ingredients such as vegetables and fruits. You should clean and drain it thoroughly.
- Place the ingredients next to each other
After everything is ready, you have to put the main ingredients and another additional seasoning in a reachable spot. Because you may add some things at one time and should not be an idle time after another.
Seasoning is the key to delicious cuisine. All of your effort on cooking will be defined on how you season it precisely or based on your “audience” taste.
If your audiences love to eat salty food, you have to be brave to put extra salt in your dish. But if you still don’t know about your audience’s taste, you should play safe by making it bland so they can add some salt based on their taste buds.
- Keep your sink empty
Washing the tools after cooking might bring you into another work. So, you have to wash it simultaneously while waiting for your food ready to serve. Do not wait until it piles up like a mountain.
