    Cooking is something many enjoy doing, some find it a task. Being organized in the kitchen can help greatly in the preparation involved in cooking.

    Whether you have a huge gourmet kitchen or a kitchenette, knowing how to keep it organized is a good place to start.

    Here are some tips;

    1) Keep your utensils in a place located closely to the area in which you will prepare your food. Your cooking utensils would do well in a container or on hooks right at arms length to the stove, so having them handing will keep things running smoothly.

    2) Spices, if you are one that adds your spices as you cook, keep them in either a spice caracole or a drawer within immediate reach. Keep them in alphabetical order or in order of type. Make sure the labels are easily seen.

    3) That infamous clutter of plastic containers can be frustrating in the kitchen. When searching for a matching lid and bottom you can waist time searching and find you getting frustrated. Go through your containers regularly and make sure you have the matches of tops and bottoms, and make sure they are in an orderly fashion so you can grab them easily.

    4) Your pots, pans, and bake ware should be kept together by type in an easy to grab place. Having a pan at the back part of the cupboard can really frustrate a person who is trying to get their cooking tasks done. Keeping your items in an orderly fashion will make it easy to grab what you want.

    5) Your dishes, cutlery, and glasses don’t need to be in your cooking area. They can be in an cupboard area that is further from the stove and closer to where you serve from. This keeps the area around you cooking and preparation space open for items such as pots, pans, and spices.

    Remember one of the frustrations of cooking is not being organized. Having a well organized kitchen will minimize frustration and free you up for other things,

    Going from a short hall into the kitchen of the Compound, which sits over a cellar from the era when this antiquated building belonged to an apple orchard and not so recently has been converted into a fine dining restaurant, with a chuckle, I’m greeted by the king of the arena Chef Ralph.

    Through a squeaky voice he says. “Hey, Sam Do the Watusi.”

    The chef resembles a bearded chipmunk wearing a hat that looks like a kernel of corn popped into a puffy cloud.

    While the chef is whisking translucent egg whites into peaks of snow, the major-demo walks in wearing a tan three piece suit. He asks the chef. “What”s on today’s menu?”

    “A little bit of chicken, a little bit of beef, and a little bit of pork,” the chef answers. He is short and round and wears black and white pants. Then he repeats, “A little bit of chicken, A little bit of beef, and a little pork,” as he folds the fluffed egg white into some melted shimmering chocolate. The smug dining room coordinator walks out mumbling under his breath.

    “Maybe, I should have mentioned fish,” said the chef with a chuckle.

    As I am chopping parsley into green confetti, the international cuisine master preps tarragon, shallots, dry white wine, and vinegar for a Bearnaise sauce. He heats up the potion in an aluminum pot, which will be added to a creamy egg yolk and butter base.

    When the concoction is done brewing, the chef shuffles over to the food processor to where I am popping open oysters with a shucking knife.

    Standing next to me he takes a sniff of the mixture and crinkles his pudgy nose. A concerned look crosses his rosy-cheeked face.

    “Hey, Sam, smell this. Does it smell right?”

    I take a whiff of the steaming contents of the pot. Whoa! The pungent vinegar and tarragon hit my nostrils with a burning sensation, causing my eyes to water like a broken cistern. They could use this for smelling salts. It is amazing that something that smells terrible is made into a sauce which raptures ones palate to life, to compliment a savory roasted tenderloin beef.

    Recovering from the rancid nasal assault and clearing away the tears from my eyes, I see a chipmunk wearing a double breasted cook’s jacket and a chef’s hat chuckling.

    “Hey, Sam, it smell right?” His eyes crease into crows feet as he breaks into laughter.

    Finishing the Creamy Bearnaise sauce he whistles a Kinks’ tune bobbing his head to the beat as he schemes up an antic for his next victim. This is my culinary arts mentor Chef Ralph a thirty-something adolescent prankster,

    Fenugreek tea is popular where it is naturally harvested, which is in nations adjoining the Mediterranean and onwards to India. Not only is it used to augment foods but also as a very popular refreshing drink.

    The beverage itself contains only the fenugreek seeds. They are easily found in supermarkets, specialty supermarkets or your local health food store. It suffices to comment that the better the quality, the better the resulting beverage.

    Brewing the tea is easy – a walk in the park, even, so don’t be worried that you have to make this drink with seeds as opposed to herbs. As a general rule, use one teaspoon of fennel seeds to one cup of water. Put them in a pot and boil them for at least five minutes. If you like a stronger taste, then boil them for up to ten minutes. This is something you can play around with until you come up with your perfect cup. Now just remove the pan from the heat and cover. Leave for another ten to fifteen minutse – the same principles apply – the longer you leave it, the stronger it will become so monitor this carefully. When you believe it is ready, strain the mixture into a mug or cup. You can now throw away the seeds as they have done their job. This drink tastes good hot or cold (try it with ice and lemon when it is hot outside).

    Fenugreek is a really healthy choice. It is great for digestion and anything related to the digestive process. It actually has quite a lot of fiber which is why it is often used as a laxative. The fiber swells in the colon, and helps take away toxic waste from your body. Many people drink this tea to detoxify themselves or as part of a detox program. In fact you will find that many of the teas sold as “detox teas” have fenugreek as one of the main items. It is a great tea is you have a cough or any bronchitis related problems as fenugreek helps to get rid of excess mucus in the body. It can even be used to help new mothers increase their flow of milk.

    This tea can also be used as a paste to help with skin irritation, swelling and insectstings. For the paste, just mix around three tablespooons of powdered fenugreek seeds to around one quart of boiled water. Let this mixture stand and when it is cold it will be of a thick consistency. You can either buy ground fenugreek seeds for this or you can do this yourself in a grinder or kitchen machine.

    With all these benefits as well as a great taste, it is obvious that fenugreek tea should take a favorite place in your kitchen.
