Implement mise en place. French for “put in place,” do all of your prep work for a dish, such as chopping, peeling and measuring, before you start cooking. This way, you can focus on cook times and techniques while making the recipe.
Practice plating. We eat with our eyes, so try plating your dishes. You can have elevated food at home and plating certainly helps you do that. It’s also a great way to support portion control.
Have fun in the kitchen. Don’t be afraid to experiment and put your own spin on these recipes. And be sure to make cooking the best part of your day. Pour a glass of wine, play some music and make it something you look forward to.
