Here at Homecolours we love to see how well designer brands come up with new ideas for getting to work in the kitchen. Many meals depend on what happens before turning on the heat, so here we'll take a look at the various ways designer products can help with food preparation
Chopping, slicing and dicing are essential activities when it comes to getting various ingredients ready for pot, pan and stove. Sometimes it's the time consuming aspect of food preparation that puts some people off cooking and baking 'from scratch'. But really, if you have clear work surfaces and reliable utensils and tools, the whole process can be extremely straightforward and enjoyable. As easy as following a recipe!
Whatever food you wish to prepare, it's a good idea to ensure you have a solid board to work with. The above Morso Kit Cutting Board, Medium is inspired by a traditional butchers block, and has been crafted from strong oak wood to provide a durable base for all kitchen preparation activities. Easy to clean and look after, the board can be stood up when not in use in order to save space around the kitchen. With a timeless and sophisticated design, the rounded edges bring a smooth look to kitchen prep.
A board for any sort of preparation is well partnered with a good quality kitchen knife for all kinds of cutting and slicing of ingredients. The above Zone Denmark Singles Knife Block is a smart way to keep your favourite knives in the best of condition and ready for any work. A great combination of design simplicity and contemporary manufacture practises, the block allows you to position your knives in the best place for your work. With a striking curvature, the block is a striking and valuable item for a busy kitchen.
Another versatile way to prepare ingredients is offered with the Kuhn Rikon Flexi Slice and Serve Knife. A combination stainless steel and plastic, the knife can be used to slice breads, pies and pizza. The knife could also be great for softer vegetables which need slicing before being cooked. Attractive and positively useful, the slice and serve knife is another valuable way to prep in style.
