The Student Cooking Guide with all the Revolutionary Products you Need
1. Preparation for Student Cooking is key!
Get ahead with a Sunday evening session of batch-cooking. The Chasseur Cast Iron Casserole Dish is a trademark of quality kitchen cookware and is perfect for rustling up a batch of chilli. This is a student kitchen essential that you need!
Get your ingredients into the Casserole Dish earlier in the evening to allow them to sizzle and simmer. Slow and steady wins the race and that’s why Chasseur cast iron products provide delicious dishes. Their signature capability for slow cooking is incredibly desirable as the longer you allow a chilli to rest, the better. Once ready, you can freeze portions for meals later in the week or alternatively dish up immediately for all your friends and flatmates.
2. Wok Your Kitchen
A student cooking classic remains to be the scrumptious, and ever so easy, stir-fry. Pack your five-a-day into our Non-Stick Carbon Steel Wok and get stirring and sizzling! But remember, whatever vegetables you choose to throw into your wok will wilt down with the heat, so there’s even more chance for you to double up on your necessary nutrients. What’s more, stir-fries can be one-pot dishes, which means less washing up – ideal in student digs.
