If you’ve spent any time working in a large kitchen, you know how important it is to finish one task completely before starting on another one, but it’s a tip that many home cooks ignore. Bon Appetit Magazine has a few tips to help home cooks stay organised and cook a great meal without wrecking their kitchen in the process.
One of the best tips in the piece is the reminder that home cooks should try to remember to cook assembly-line style. For example, when prepping food to cook, don’t peel and chop a single potato and then move on to the next, peel all the potatoes, chop them all, then move on. This method actually speeds you up, and gives you a chance to clean as you complete each individual task.
They also suggest using multiple bowls — a method we’ve suggested before — one for prep, one for refuse, and one for the final product, to help you stay organised and keep your kitchen clean. For a few extra tips, head over to Bon Appetit for the full list.
