Check out some the most common cooking mistakes we make.
- Over filling the pans.
You need to space out your food to ensure adequate cooking. As a general rule of thumb, your meats or chicken should be far enough apart that no two pieces are touching.
- Improper Prep
The best way to ensure a meal turns out delicious and as expected is to guarantee the proper preparation. Take those meats out to thaw, spin your salad and slow cook for better flavour etc.
Correctly preparing your meal determines how good the result will taste.
You don’t wait for the right time to add in your ingredients. You throw everything in together instead of step by step.
- Going rogue
It’s best to read and understand the recipe beforehand. Collect and prepare the ingredients before you start cooking.
- Overcooking and under cooking
Preparing the perfect meal all boils down to cooking your food at the correct temperature for the right amount of time. Follow the guidelines of your recipe and invest in a digital thermometer for precision.
Besides these, general hygiene is very important.
Wash your hands regularly, no pets on counters, tie your hair, use clean spoons for ingredients. You don’t want fur or hair in your food nor do you want to give anyone food poisoning, so be particular about hygiene.
