The Makings of a Healthful Kitchen (Part 4)
April 12, 2010
As I mentioned last week, I’ve become a fan of the television show Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution. The episode last Friday night was pretty inspiring. In it, Jamie made a bet with the ever-so-skeptical local talk radio host that he could get 1,000 people cooking healthfully in a matter of five days. Jamie worked hard to get people cooking and in the end actually won over the radio host, turning him into his 1,000th cook! What was amazing was that people from all over Huntington, West Virginia (where this all takes place) participated — young, old, business folks, college students, teachers, steel workers…you name it, they were there.
One reason I mention this show is that Jamie Oliver taught everyone how to make a simple stir-fry dish using either a wok or an electric skillet. The dish was quick and easy to make and everyone proudly had their picture taken once they finished cooking. So, before we move on to other kitchen tools to make your own cooking easier and healthier, I thought it would be worthwhile to mention the kinds of cookware that all cooks should have in their kitchen. Here are some pointers:
Price-wise, it can make sense to buy an entire cookware set. But only do this if you truly think you’ll use all the pieces. Otherwise, you’ll have pots and pans just taking up room in your kitchen.
If you don’t plan on purchasing an entire set, these are the “must-haves”:
These items are the “nice-to-haves” (if you have the space, money, and need):
So, there you have it — your cookware essentials! Please share if you think I’ve missed something or if you have an “essential” that you can’t do without.
