First of all, the prelude to a happy dish is your shopping list.
Nothing more frustrating than missing an ingredient or not taking me to check your pantry or fridge.
Also, ask yourself some basic questions:
Are all the ingredients in season? Easy to find? Being biased, I would say, yes, if you shop at Draeger’s!
Once your shopping is done, store all ingredients appropriately until you are ready to cook.
Once you are ready to cook, pull everything out.
Most of the labor of cooking goes into prep; every professional Chef goes through this daily routine.
If you do the same at home, you will turn into a happy Cook! And your dishes into fabulous ones.
From the moment the food arrives in your Kitchen to the moment, it is served, the better the travel, the better food will taste.
