Welcome back to our series on how to cook for a crowd! In our previous post, we discussed the importance of meal planning and preparation. Today, we're going to dive into some cooking and serving tips that will help make your meal a success. And, of course, we'll be featuring some of our favorite eco-friendly kitchen products from Two Pillars.
Let's start with cooking. Whether you're making a big pot of chili or grilling up some burgers, there are a few things you can do to make the process easier and more efficient. First, invest in a good set of cookware. Look for pots and pans that are durable, easy to clean, and can handle a variety of cooking methods. And don't forget about baking sheets, casserole dishes, and other kitchen essentials that will come in handy when cooking for a crowd.
When it comes to serving, presentation is key. Use platters, bowls, and serving utensils that complement your meal and add some visual interest. And don't forget about temperature! Keep hot dishes hot and cold dishes cold by using warming trays, chafing dishes, or coolers.
Now, let's talk about some of our favorite eco-friendly kitchen products from Two Pillars. The Duo Cover® is a must-have for anyone who uses a microwave. This next-generation microwave gadget uses MoistureLock™ technology to increase moisture in your food, delivering leftovers that taste better than the first time. Plus, it's dishwasher safe and has microwave-safe magnets that make it easy to store.
If you're looking for a reusable storage solution, the ZipBag® is perfect for keeping your favorite snacks crisp, storing fresh produce or leftovers, bringing food on the go, or even cooking sous vide. And since it's made of silicone, it's durable and dishwasher safe.
When it's time to clean up, reach for the Swedish Dishcloth.
