Tips & Tricks to Cook Delicious Food

You do not need fancy culinary skills or kitchen tools to whip up a delicious meal at home. These tips and hacks are basic cooking ideas that are versatile and can be applied across many different scenarios.

  1. Having the right equipment
    • To cook your food evenly and efficiently, make sure you use the right-sized pans and pots. Overcrowding your pan will only hamper your efforts to distribute food evenly throughout the pan.
    • Buy non-stick pans so that oil splattering can be kept to a minimum.
  2. Storage
    • Prolong the life of your herbs and spices by storing them in a cool and dark place. Keeping them near the stove - where the heat and humidity is high - can alter their flavours.
    • Keep some food essentials on hand - make sure you have your pasta, sauces and curry mixes for an impromptu cooking session!
  3. Learning online
    • The easiest way to improve your cooking skills is to watch and learn online. There are many resources online - from beginner to expert levels, the Internet is a great resource for your next cooking adventure.
    • Take a cue from our collection of home recipe videos or recipe brochures and get cracking.
