KITCHEN CLASSES ARE GREAT.
BUT WHAT ABOUT COOKING?
Well, if you’re going to eat out at a restaurant, there’s a few basic guidelines to follow.
Don’t go overboard.
Don-o-the-mood restaurants tend to have a higher turnover rate.
This means that you have more choices and you’ll likely get more out of a meal.
It’s also a good idea to have the dishes prepped, in the fridge, or on hand, if there’s an open bar.
Donning your kitchenware before you go out means you won’t be surprised when you run out of your favorite, classic, or even the newest one.
If you can’t decide which dish to order, it’s probably okay to eat it the way you usually do.
Donate to the Kitchen Project If you’re in need of more money to cook, consider donating to the project.
You’ll get your money back in the form of a monthly donation of a certain amount of money.
(The amount is determined by how many times you make your monthly donation, which is based on how many meals you donate.)
If it’s your first time at a kitchen, it can be a bit daunting.
But, if it’s a regular meal for you and a friend, it might feel like a breeze.
There’s nothing more comforting than being able to just walk into a restaurant and start cooking for yourself.
Think outside the box.
If your dishwasher is broken or the sink is dirty, think outside the bag.
This can also be a great way to get a little creative and find something you like.
Just make sure you use the right size of plastic container and the correct utensil.
Pay attention to your ingredients.
If there are no ingredients listed on the menu, try to find something that’s already on the shelf.
You can find a great cookbook that lists all the different ingredients, or you can make your own.
This may sound like a weird thing to say, but it’s important to be respectful of other diners and your environment.
If a person starts talking loudly, that person is definitely getting a bad meal and they need to move on.
Donations are always appreciated.
If the host has been gracious, or the staff has been attentive, you can thank them and go home happy.
Remember that you’re just a guest in a restaurant.
Your food will be cooked by someone else.
You’re going there to get something you love and enjoy.
If this is the first time you’ve had a food experience at a traditional restaurant, take a moment to appreciate it.
If not, think about what you can do to make your dining experience more enjoyable.
