Food Safety Tips

Every top chef knows that the kitchen can be one of the most dangerous places. From knives to potential fires, and not to mention health hazards, following a few basic kitchen safety tips is essential.

Here are some of the best celebrity chef tips endorsed by the ‘Ready Steady Cook’ team:

  • Ban dogs and cats from the kitchen and kitchen surfaces.
  • Always keep food well covered with plastic film or lids to avoid cross-contamination in the fridge.
  • Use three chopping boards – one for raw, one for cooked and one for smelly foods such as onion or garlic.
  • Use disposable paper towels instead of a cloth as these do not encourage germs.

Holiday Cooking Tips

Planning a special holiday or birthday meal can be daunting, but if you follow these holiday cooking tips you’ll save yourself time and effort.

Here are a few celebrity chef tips to make things simpler:

  • A week before your holiday party, buy and pack away all the heavy stuff like water, bottles and tins to avoid lugging heavy things around at the last minute.
  • Don’t forget to get some good champagne to add some class.
  • Get as much done as you can ahead of time so you can relax and enjoy the company.
