No matter what your situation is at home, batch cooking is a fantastic way to save time and money on meals. Here at Dotmaison we think making ingredients in the kitchen go further is a great way to spend time.
With some careful preparation and cooking you can make up a whole load of meals in one go. These can then be stored away or froze for a few days and then reheated for a quick mid-week meal. The portions could even by transported to different locations by packing into containers.
Batch cooking can certainly be a great way to make the kitchen work for you. But what designer tools and equipment can help in this aim? Here are some great ideas.
The above Rosti Margrethe Set of 4 Mixing Bowls with Lids, Indian Summer are excellent for food preparation. Whenever making anything in the kitchen ingredients will need to be mixed together and combined. This is where the bowls can prove invaluable. Offering a strong container for mixing, the four differently sized bowls are ideal for any sort of food prep.
The ideal production of the bowls includes a spout at the top that makes pouring mixes from bowls to pan simple and secure. The bowls are also heat resistant up to 70C.
The danger of any spills getting onto your clothes when mixing up your next batch of meals is minimised by wearing the Sara Miller Apron, Tahiti Flamingo.
The striking looking overall protection features gorgeous pink flamingos and resplendent tropical tress across a green background. The 100% heavyweight cotton ensures you will have perfect covering when working in the kitchen.
Easy to adjust with the D ring, the apron is comfortable for all sot of culinary activity.
The above Rig Tig Drop Colander is a great example of how well designer style can reinvigorate a classic kitchen tool.
Colanders are essential items for washing fruit and salad before preparation in a salad or before cooking or stewing. The piece combines a modern look with superb functionality.
Simply pour water into the top of the piece and allow water to wash through the food in the main body. The water can then easily be drained through the holes. When not in use the colander can be easily folded up to save space on shelves and in cupboards.
Produced in a natural colour, the colander is another great way to prepare for a batch cooking session at home
