CookingSchools.com, an online directory of culinary schools in Florida, discusses four tips to cook for one or two people.
According to a February 10th article posted by SurfKY titled “Master The Art Of Cooking For One Or Two With These Tips,” people accustomed to cooking for large families might find difficulty in reducing food portions when cooking for a small number of people.
The article lists four ways to prepare meals for one or two people, easily and cost effectively.
1. Divide and store. Although buying in bulk may help save money, it is impractical for those living alone or with one other person. However, those who want to buy in bulk should purchase a vacuum sealer to keep the extra food fresh.
2. Try to plan means with similar ingredients. When cooking meals with similar ingredients, it’s easier to use leftovers for the next meal.
3. Cut recipes in half. Most recipes are made for larger groups of people. If there’s a recipe that could feed four people, cutting all of the ingredients in half minimizes the recipe for two people.
4. Prepare food for the whole week. Couples can cook on the weekend and package the food into small containers to freeze. This helps couples use only what they need.
Andrew Girard, a representative from CookingSchools.com, a directory of culinary schools in Florida, says that cooking for one or two may seem difficult at first, but with a little time anyone can learn to master it. “There is plenty we can do to prevent throwing out uneaten food. Cutting recipes in half is a great first step to achieve this. No one likes to throw away a spoiled meal.”
Girard continues, “Buying in bulk is always tempting, but if you’re just cooking for one or two people, do you really need that much food in your house? If you do decide to buy in bulk, try to buy items which are individually packaged, to prevent them from spoiling.”
