Three ways to be more kitchen efficient

1. Before you begin to cook, always read the recipe the whole way through, paying close attention and visualising each step. This minimises the risk of error.

2. Take a few minutes to prepare the kitchen before you begin. In French, this is known as mise-en-place, meaning “everything in its place.” Take ingredients and utensils out, making sure you have enough of everything. Weigh, measure and prep your ingredients. This is always a smart way to approach cooking, but is particularly useful when making quick-cooking dishes such as stir-fries.

3. Clean as you go. There are often brief moments during meal preparation in which you have nothing to do. Make the most of these time-outs by quickly washing dishes, wiping down counters and putting things away. You’ll thank yourself later!
