Keep Your Cooking Utensils Handy

Utensils are the tools of your kitchen and are usually needed at a moments notice to stir, whisk, grate, pound, and open.  You don’t want to waste time searching through a messy drawer trying to find a tool you know you have.

Helpful Hint: Keep your cooking utensils handy and close to where you cook.

I find that most storage utensil containers found at kitchen shops are too small to hold your prized tools.  Instead, get creative, look for something around your house like a flower pot, water jug, antique pot, or even a pretty ice bucket or trophy.  My storage container is a large, fire engine red flower pot from Ikea filled with my most used tools: tongs, wooden spoons, spatulas, rasp, hand graters, garlic press, can opener, honing steel, whisk, etc.

  2. Hi Kary…love your TV show…but on your last Episode you had the recipe for Brown Sugar Meringues with Citrus Curd and did NOT give the measurements for:
    SUGAR….WATER….BROWN SUGAR…can you e-mail those measurements?

    Also, I just received “Best Recipes Ever” Volume 2….and I was disappointed that it was NOT your TV recipes AND it was NOT YOU !! It was a cookbook by Christine Tizzard?????? Who the heck is she????

    I wanted a book that follows YOU on the TV series…..

    Merci, TJ
