#1 You Won’t Use What You Don’t Love
Make the Kitchen a Place You Want to Be So That You Can Become Culinary Daring and adventurous when prepping meals.
- Do you find cooking to be a chore?
- Does being in the kitchen inspire you and is it somewhere you want to spend time?
Depending on how you answered these questions you either need to start with the kitchen basics if you find cooking to be a chore, such as adding in some colorful plates or fun tea towels, or you’ll possibly want to gain organization in your kitchen as that can be a reason you don’t want to cook!
Here is a short list you can use to bring your kitchen to your standards and beyond.
- add a utensil organizer
- purchase new cutting surfaces
- purchase a new small appliance (waffle maker, toaster, etc.)
- add downlighting
- maybe an Alexa speaker for music or audiobooks while you cook
- how about changing out the hardware on your cabinets
You could try changing the faucets, and while you are doing that make sure that all the drawers and cabinets work.
Make sure everything is working correctly. There is nothing more frustrating than a faulty drawer, a leaky faucet, or a dodgy oven.
Add Vegetables to Recipes And Become Culinary Daring
Do you go to the supermarket and simply buy the same vegetables you always have?
Carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, etc., well, the same old same old will get boring.
If you want to feel more inspired, you must get out of your comfort zone and experiment.
Next time you are in the fruit and vegetable aisle, pick up a few random vegetables that you have yet to learn what they are, how they taste, or what to use them in.
For instance, try rapini or edamame.
Get online and investigate, learn something new and begin cooking up more variety.
As part of your new cooking passion learning about fruits and vegetables can be part of the fun and the more you learn about the vegetables you are starting to use the less fearless in the kitchen you will be1
Where they come from, who discovered them etc., the more you try, and the more you like, the better you will feel about cooking.
New Recipes Make You Most Adventurous in The Kitchen
The best way to become fearless in the kitchen and to become more culinary daring is to get online, or buy a recipe book and vow to make at least one new dish a week.
Recipes can be so much fun to follow and create. The more recipes you follow, the better you will become at cooking.
You will understand what goes with what, how things need to be cooked, and what works and what doesn’t.
Better yet, create theme nights to get all adventurous in the kitchen, and you’ll be dining on the cuisine you made from all over the world
- and experimenting with a Mexican enchilada casserole recipe
- make your own authentic Italian pizzas
- remember being fearless in the kitchen doesn’t mean your recipes have to be healthy
- Do note that a homecooked pizza will always be healthier than shop-bought or takeaway anyway.
Spice Up Your Recipes + Get Adventurous In The Kitchen
The great thing about home cooking is that you can get wild with the spices.
You can make your own special blends and change the spices up as often as you like from red hot pepper flakes to black pepper or even hot sauce.
Spices to try in your recipes:
- smoked paprika
- black pepper
- garlic powder
- onion powder
Use Your Spices On All Of The Following:
Through your adventurous recipe creations you will be learning how spices combine, and what tastes good together and what does not. Plus you will find out that many spices replace the need for salt, all of which translates to a big old bonus towards healthier cooking!
Overall, you are becoming fearless in the kitchen and more inventive when you try new ingredients. You could see cooking as a learning curve, and that could be how you change the act of doing it in your head from a chore to a passion.
Gardening Might Add To Your Culinary Daring Side
Yes, getting a little fresh air and exercising can help you build up an appetite, and having a walk can clear your head and help you develop new ideas for cooking.
If you begin loving the outdoors a bit, why not grow your own?
This is another great way to learn about all your ingredients.
You will discover how things grow, the climate they prefer, and the moisture the soil needs to be. You will find some that grow better in the earlier part of the year and others later in the year.
Pumpkins are great autumnal vegetables, for example, and make great jack-o-lanterns too. If you have a small garden, you can start a vertical garden or possibly get an allotment.
