Once cooking becomes part of a routine it becomes boring, and no matter how much we may run away from it we all have to eat. Let’s be honest, takeaways are not the healthiest food out there, and healthier takeaways always pitch in the pocket. Here are some tips from our private chef to make cooking more fun!
Before getting to the kitchen know what you want to cook first, so look for easy recipes that you can cook at home. Make sure you chop the onions and have all the ingredients within the right bowl, and have the correct measurements. Remember that the aim is to enjoy, not stress yourself out. Our chefs recommend you try the following recipes: Speedy Singapore-style noodles or Spiced broccoli fusilli.
Listening to Music
Music is food for the soul, So feed our soul some good music while you cook. Have fun and try out that dance move you always wanted to try from TikTok. Don’t worry, if you are not into music you can catch up on your latest podcasts or audiobooks while you chef it up in the kitchen.
Get yourself a helper.
Why not change it up a bit and get yourself a cooking buddy. Hey who said you have to cook alone, a cooking buddy will definitely come in handy when it’s time to put the ingredients in the pot or read the instructions. And it also doesn’t hurt to have someone to dance with. The best part is they help you stir when you get tired or have to fetch something.
Ingredients, ingredients without them you can’t cook. Make sure you have all the ingredients because nothing gets you out of the mood for cooking than not having all the ingredients. Make sure they are ready and around the table when it’s time to cook. That way you don’t have to go to the cupboard looking for an ingredient. It doesn’t hurt to have everything nearby that way all you need to do is toss it in the pot according to your recipe. Play around with your ingredients, use your imagination and have fun.
Here’s another incentive you can play dress-up while cooking. Why not wear a funny cooking outfit with an even unique apron. Who doesn’t think dressing up lightens their mood and boosts their confidence. Choose something spontaneous, unexpected. Don’t forget to put that apron on for stains on your clothes. Imagination is key, play around with your wardrobe. Do keep in mind it should be comfortable enough to dance or move freely in.
Play with your food
When something becomes a routine it loses its spark just like how cooking the same thing can be boring. If you can’t get away with cooking something new why not give your food a makeover and add something extra. Our chef recommends you try something new. Don’t be afraid to experiment in the kitchen. That is a sure-fire way to see what works and what doesn’t work.
In conclusion, cooking can be fun when done right. After all, we need to eat. Why not make it a home-cooked meal, made with love and lots of laughter? But it doesn’t hurt to get a private chef every once in a while.
