5 Tips & Habits from Famous Cooks You Need to Read

Written by Grace & Silas

Cooking has been debated as either being an art or a skill, but either way, even the most untalented in the kitchen can exceed with these 6 tips from renowned chefs. Just because they are famous doesn’t mean they have forgotten the basic parts of cooking that helped them get to where they are today.

Jamie Oliver

Jamie’s habit is to keep an organized kitchen. He stocks up on the essentials, such as dried herbs and spices, to ensure every dish is both healthy and full of flavor. He also likes to source the freshest of foods and pre-plan meals so he can save time.

Clemens Wilmenrod

This German Chef believed that “no rules should block a cook’s inspiration.” And we agree whole-heartedly. Changing and adapting current recipes breeds innovation for new creations. While you may have some failures, they will certainly be worth it when you come up with something brilliant.

Art Smith

Art loves to recreated dishes from other countries he’s been to. You may not be able to travel to those locations, but you certainly can explore their cuisine and see how people from around the world eat breakfast or dinner.

Joel Robuchon

Joel insists that hard work is the key to becoming a great cook. This is in all aspects of life as well. Plan your days and stick to them, much like how you would when you’ve decided how to cook a meal. You have to be willing to give it your all and not quit when things get tough or when you’ve had a setback.

Tom Cenci

Tom likes to keep things simple by doing his prep the day before he makes a meal. This involves weighing, cutting, marinating, and baking. By getting this out of the way, he has more time to focus on the recipe itself without having to give more time to smaller tedious prep tasks that can often be time-consuming and frustrating.

While you may have heard of only some of these people, they all have brilliant habits and tips which you can now take into your own kitchen to improve your cooking skills and give you more time to do other things. So give them a try and let us know what you think!
