Cooking can be a ton of fun and make a great hobby, but it can also be dangerous if you’re not careful. With these cooking workshops dos and don’ts highlighted below, we’ll give you tips for having a safe time, no matter what your skill level. We’re here to help you with that!
Here are our top tips for having a great time in the kitchen:
-Try out new recipes
-Invite your friends over for dinner parties
-Make sure you’re using a clean workspace. The cleaner the better!
-Wear an apron that covers your arms and legs. You don’t want any oil splatters on your clothes or skin.
-Arrive on time. We’re all busy, but if you’re late, you won’t get the full experience of the workshop.
-Bring an open mind. Our instructors are here to help you learn new things, but they can’t do that if you don’t want to learn.
-Ask questions! That’s what we’re here for. If something doesn’t make sense or isn’t working for you, let us know—we want everyone to leave with a full belly and a smile on their face.
-Make sure you have enough space in your kitchen to move around.
-Always keep a fire extinguisher on hand.
-Wear clothes that won’t catch on fire easily, like jeans and long sleeves.
-Get too close to open flames, especially if you’re cooking with oils and fats. If you’re not paying attention while cooking, it’s easy for these things to catch fire—and once they do, they’ll keep burning until something puts them out (which means putting yourself in danger). So make sure you stay away from anything that might catch fire once lit!
-Eat before class if you’re not sure how spicy something will be. We want everyone in attendance to have a good time, and we want every student to learn something new without experiencing heartburn or indigestion halfway through class.
Overall, the most important thing to remember about cooking workshops is to have fun! By simply keeping these dos and don’ts in mind, you’ll be able to enjoy your experience without worrying about potential dangers. Now that you understand the dos and don’ts, you will be safer and have more fun. If you need any help with this or other workshops just comment below or on our facebook page.
