CookingSchools.com, an online directory of culinary schools in California, offers tips on how beginner cooks can save time in the kitchen.
According to a February 7th article published by The Guardian titled “Kitchen time saving tips for budding cooks,” one of the biggest challenges beginner cooks face is learning to cope with all the unknowns. Lack of experience prevents many novice cooks from learning all of the shortcuts and tips many legendary chefs developed throughout their many years of cooking. These elite chef-worthy time saving tips are rarely shared with the public. However, there are some simple tips that can help beginner cooks save time in the kitchen during the preparation time.
Andrew Girard, a representative from CookingSchools.com, a directory of culinary schools in California, says time saving can be a great asset to blossoming cooks. “Many people shy away from cooking due to the amount of preparation and time needed to cook a big meal,” he says. “But there are a few things that beginners can do to make it easier on themselves.”
For instance, Girard advises budding cooks to invest in sharp, new knives and peeling tools. “People waste a lot of time cutting food with dull knives and old peelers,” he says. “Buying just one sharp, sturdy knife can really make a difference. Make sure you can use it to cut anything from vegetables to meat. A good peeler can also save you a lot of time when cooking vegetables like potatoes.”
Girard also suggests planning ahead and organizing the ingredients beforehand so it’s easier to use them when they are needed. “First, read the recipe through,” he says. “This will give cooks an idea of what the entire recipe encompasses and when certain ingredients will be needed. From there, you can measure out your ingredients so you have them on hand. This can significantly cut down time and help amateur cooks improve their skills.”
To learn more about how to cook and tips to help save time, Girard recommends taking a cooking class or enrolling in a course through CookingSchools.com.
