In How Tos, Inspiration

A winter chill is in the air and with that, the desire for warm, home-cooked food made with time and love. But after a long day, preparing a meal can sometimes feel like part of your daily grind. With a small change in outlook, you can turn a chore into a meditative moment. Make prep and cooking an enjoyable part of the mealtime experience to slow down and dial back with our slow dining guide.

Create a calm cooking space

An organised kitchen makes for a more enjoyable cooking experience. Clear the worktop of all non-essentials so that you have an uncluttered space that makes chopping and slicing a breeze. Investing in storage makes it easier to keep your worktop clear when everyday items have a dedicated space to be put away.

Invest in the right tools 

Cooking can feel like hard work when you don’t have the right tools. Blunt knives? burnt fingers? Take note of your pain points when preparing a meal then invest in cook tools to take the hard work out of prep work.

As the weather cools, comforting casseroles and slow-roasted sides make for delicious slow-cooked winter warmers. Beautiful cookware that can go from oven to table with ease make mealtimes easier.

Share the moment

Slow down and bring conversation into your meal prep. Creating a comfortable seating space for someone to chat while you cook or help with the prep turns a daily task into a meaningful connection. If you don’t have a cooking companion, listen to your favourite music and indulge in the moment with a glass of wine.

Set the table to set the pace

It may feel indulgent to set the table on a weekday, but we say, why not? Every evening should be celebrated. Setting a table with linen, glassware, crockery and cutlery creates the sense that the moment and meal are special. So whatever’s on the menu, take a few minutes to make the eating of it a thoughtful one.
