The clock is ticking towards 2013 at a rapid rate, and with a new year comes resolutions, and of course, ours happen to be food related.
- Order something different at your local restaurant
- Eat less meat
- Buy organic and free range meat, it may be more expensive, so see the resolution above
- Try smoking dishes at home
- Eat what you’re afraid of (oyster haters we’re looking at you), you never know you might find you quite like it
- Support local and private business, the grocers, the cheese makers, the butchers
- Aim to eat with people you love, whether it be friends or family at least three times a week
- Invest in a good chef’s knife—your cooking skills will improve immediately
- Learn about other cooking oils; olive oil is not the be-all and end-all. Try rapeseed, grapeseed, peanut, sesame and coconut
- Ditch the cornflakes and eat an exciting breakfast at least once a week
- Eat off beautiful crockery, don’t save the good stuff for ‘one day’
- Quality above quantity always
What are yours?
