Cooking tips for beginners

Unless you plan to eat all your meals out or find a take-away close to where you live, you’re going to have to learn something about cooking for yourself. This is a basic life skill that will help you save money, eat healthier and, even more importantly, impress potential partners when you show off your skills in the kitchen on a cozy night in. Check out these beginner cooking tips for some inspiration.


Buy a Quality Kitchen Knife 

You can’t prepare good food unless you have the right equipment. You’ll use a knife to prepare almost every dish, and messing around with one that’s dull or doesn’t cut properly could be enough to turn you off the idea of learning how to cook at all. This is an instance where you shouldn’t be afraid to spend a bit of coin on something that is going to last you for a while.


Prepare all Ingredients in Advance 

To ensure that the recipe will be prepared properly, the ingredients need to be added in a precise order, in the form described in the recipe. Take the time to ensure you have everything you need for your recipe on hand. Do all the chopping, grating and pureeing before you start preparing your recipe. That way, you don’t have to stop the food preparation to look after these tasks, and risk unnecessary delay or overcooking.


Don’t Put Food into a Cold Pan 

One of the most important cooking tips you can learn as a beginner is to always warm up a pan before adding ingredients. If you place ingredients into a cold or cool pan, they don’t start to cook straight away, which puts your whole cooking time calculations off.
