from the Piece of Cake Mystery Series
By Jacklyn Brady
Okay, I know some of you are shutting down at my use of that word. Organization can make even the strongest of us cringe. But wait. Please! Hear me out . . .
A professional chef can't afford to work in a disorganized kitchen. I think we'll all agree on that. But consider this: If you're a Chef-Under-Protest, you'll spend way more time than you want in the kitchen if the space is disorganized and cluttered. If you really want to get in and get out again fast, you'll do that much more effectively if there's a place for everything and everything is kept in its place. Just think about how much time you could save not searching for the spice you need in that over-crowded spice cupboard.
If you live in an area where weevils and other critters are a problem, you may want to transfer your dry ingredients out of their store packaging and into airtight packaging as soon as possible. You can find many different kinds of containers ranging in price from easily affordable to more expensive.
Whether you love spending time in your kitchen or it's the room you love to hate, keeping all nooks and crannies organized will make the time you spend there much more enjoyable. Trust me on this!
