10 New Year Foodie Resolutions
1. Take a Cooking Class
If you are passionate about food, there is great value in learning how to prepare it! Further your kitchen skillset with a general cooking class or learn a new cuisine this year.
Not only is a cooking class a great resolution, purchasing a cooking class could be the perfect gift for the foodie in your life.
2. Fight Food Waste
Stop food waste at home with these few tips:
- Stop overbuying – Keep track of what you are buying and using
- Check the use-by dates of fresh food – Only buy what you can use before that date
- Love your freezer – Plan a day to batch-cook and freeze for quick weeknight dinners!
Incorporating leftover recipes is a great way to reduce food waste. Check out these Leftover skillet nachos.
3. Start a New Meal Tradition
Kitchen traditions are nothing new – use the new year as an opportunity to start a new-to-you meal tradition!
This could range from Taco Tuesdays, Meatless Mondays, or trying a new restaurant every month.
4. Expand your kitchen skillset
Looking to grow your culinary skillset? Get started with these!
- Try your hand at homemade pasta – good things DO take time
- Start making sourdough – what better way to impress at your next dinner party?
- Churn your own butter – take your butter board to the next level!
5. Experiment with new ingredients
New year, new flavor profiles! Bring fresh flavors to your family gatherings by branching out. If you are intrigued by Middle Eastern cuisine, give Mujadara a try. This hearty vegan dish is a staple for Fufu’s Kitchen!
