I am not a professional cook. Unlike Seema and Sophie, I’m not on the MOB Kitchen payroll because of my astonishing culinary skills or my brilliant presence in front of the camera. In fact, I’m not entirely sure why I’m on the MOB Kitchen payroll, to be honest, but if you won’t tell, I won’t either.
One of the symptoms of being an amateur cook surrounded by much more talented people is that I’m always looking for ways to cut corners and save myself time and faff in the kitchen. I may not be a better cook than your average Joe, but I can damn well try and make a meal quicker than they can and use a lot less brainpower while doing so. That’s why I’m perennially excited by the idea of kitchen hacks and ways to improve my cooking with a few simple and quick fixes. I thought I’d share a few of the handy kitchen hacks I’ve learned over the years with you, too. Because we could all use a little help, right?
