Simple Techniques to Help Reclaim Your Kitchen

food-kitchen-cutting-board-cooking

Your kitchen — it’s where your family gathers after a long day of work and school to be together, share a meal. Your kitchen is the warmest (and not to mention most delicious!) part of your home, where you cook your favorite foods for you and your family — sometimes even together. The kitchen — it’s definitely our favorite room in the house!

But today, with fast food, processed, and pre-made food, we spend less and less time cooking hearty, delicious meals in the kitchen. Your stove and oven collect cobwebs, while your microwave is the number one go-to for being fast and efficient. But all this efficiency is making the kitchen lose its true purpose — to cook healthy, full meals, for families to sit down and eat together.

It’s time to reclaim your kitchen, and Wolf has the perfect techniques, tools, and essential ingredients to help you get your kitchen back with their Reclaim the Kitchen Kit — just in time for the holidays!

Needed Techniques

So, you’re ready to reclaim your kitchen? Wonderful! The first step is learning some simple kitchen techniques to help elevate your meals and turn you into the pro chef you’ve always wanted to be.

With Wolf’s Reclaim the Kitchen Kit, techniques including how to properly use a knife, the best way to roast and grill, and even food safety tips are featured — everything you need to start getting your kitchen back to what it was intended for. With these techniques, you’ll be able to cook all your favorite meals like a kitchen master — and even let your family help out with these techniques (of course, don’t let the little ones handle knives — leave the cutting to the grown-ups!)

Essential Ingredients

Wolf’s Reclaim the Kitchen Kit includes a list of essential ingredients you’ll need in order to make top-notch meals. These ingredients are the ones you should always keep in your refrigerator, ingredients to always keep stocked in your pantry, and spices you should always keep on hand.

Wolf suggests always keeping some milk, carrots, and both salted and unsalted butter in your refrigerator at all times — because you never know when you’ll need them! For your pantry, some suggested ingredients include baking soda, vegetable oil, and brown sugar. And last but not least, Wolf suggests always keeping your pantry stocked with cinnamon, basil, and garlic powder. These are just a few of the ingredients that Wolf suggests for keeping your kitchen stocked and ready to go at a moment’s notice.

Basic Tools

In order to cook the recipes you love the right way, you’ll of course need the right tools — and Wolf has you covered. In Wolf’s Reclaim the Kitchen Kit, a complete list of the basic tools you’ll need in order to reclaim your kitchen is available — tools that help out with measuring, cutting, and even baking.

For some of the essential measuring tools, Wolf suggests keeping different sets of measuring spoons to handle wet and dry ingredients, and choosing metal measuring cups over plastic. For cutting tools, Wolf suggests kitchen shears — a perfectly easy way to finely cut your favorite herbs, and four basic knives: chef’s knife, boning/filet, paring, and serrated bread knife. They even offer videos on chopping, slicing, and dicing to help you sharpen your knife game. And you can’t forget a sheet pan and parchment paper for baking and beyond!
