Create a sustainable kitchen with these simple steps

Every kitchen accumulates a good share of household waste daily. Be it food waste, vegetable scraps, or takeaway boxes, the amount of trash generated is the most in the kitchen.

Additionally, high energy-consuming kitchen appliances as well as the excessive use of water will have ill effects on the environment, both in the short and long term.

If you’re planning to make your kitchen more sustainable, SocialStory lists a few tips to kickstart your green initiative.

Eco-friendly choices

If you’re renovating your kitchen from scratch or switching your appliances, there are a lot of eco-friendly options to choose from that are energy-efficient, and can go a long way in saving electricity.

For example, since a refrigerator has to be kept switched on at all times, shifting to an eco-friendly refrigerator with a five-star power consumption rating can

What are the best hacks for optimising speed and flavour, and minimising waste?
Jess, Glasgow

If you’ve ever fallen down a rabbit hole watching YouTube or Instagram, you’ll know there’s a big, bad world of kitchen hacks (otherwise known as tips) lurking in the depths of the internet. While some will waste your time and ingredients (hello, melted gummy bear jelly), others can make you a more efficient cook.

Ingredient prep is a good place to start, something in which Ixta Belfrage, recipe developer for Yotam Ottolenghi and co-author of the new Ottolenghi Flavour (out in September), is well-versed. To remove garlic skins, Belfrage usually crushes the cloves with the flat of a knife, but, when faced with a lot to do, she turns to the microwave: “Put in a whole bulb for about five seconds and the skin will come off really easily,” she says. She then blitzes it

Sherman Williams, chairman of the organization’s board of directors, told the Citizen Times that GO is “still in discussion” about what new programs will be created, whether they will be similar to the ones they’re replacing and when they will debut.

“We’re thinking and hoping that it will be just as successful as what we’ve had in the past,” he said of his expectations for the new programs’ effect on GO’s community.

Why I Love These Shelf Risers from Open Spaces

Each product we feature has been independently selected and reviewed by our editorial team. If you make a purchase using the links included, we may earn commission.

With space at a premium in tiny New York City apartments, mastering your storage can seem like a Sisyphean task. Just as you’ve found a place for that giant pack of toilet paper that was “too good of a deal to pass up on,” you realize that it’s cool enough to use your oven again, so you’ll also need to find a place for the pans you’ve been storing in there (or even clothes, for some).

Like many others, I’ve spent the last six months living, cooking, and working from home more than ever, which also means I’ve spent half my time constantly rearranging my apartment and organizing all aspects of my space. While I still haven’t figured out a way to magically

Kitchen not back with Panthers amid report he kicked player

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) — Assistant coach Mike Kitchen will not return to the Florida Panthers next season among a series of staffing changes announced Tuesday.

Canada’s TSN reported Kitchen kicked a Panthers player on the bench during a game in January and the team held an internal investigation. A team spokeswoman did not immediately respond to an email seeking confirmation.

Kitchen oped out of coaching in the NHL’s postseason for personal reasons, saying in July: “It was a difficult decision to say the least but the right decision for me and my family.” The 64-year-old rejoined coach Joel Quenneville behind the bench this season for the first time since 2016-17, and the two won the Stanley Cup together twice with Chicago.

TSN reported Quenneville and former general manager Dale Tallon were notified of the incident after the game. The team did not renew Tallon’s contract and last month hired Bill

This Japanese Vegetable Grater Is My Quickest Route to Dinner

Healthyish Loves It is our weekly column where we tell you about the stuff we can’t live without. See our past recommendations here!

When I first moved out of my parents’ home and into my own apartment, it was easy to remember to buy a rice cooker and a chef’s knife. But when I tried to make the Japanese dishes I grew up eating, I began to realize all the small but essential tools that were missing in my new kitchen: bamboo cooking chopsticks, a rice paddle, and, of course, a grater.

Almost every Japanese household has a vegetable grater. This is because Japanese cooking often uses oroshi-mono, which directly translates to “something grated.” Raw grated ginger is often served on the side of grilled vegetables or tempura, and raw grated daikon commonly tops wafū burgers or fried fish. Both are also served as a side to soba noodles

Mark Cunningham Creates a Chef’s Dream Kitchen in New York City

New York City isn’t exactly known for its generous kitchen space, but a professional chef’s needs go beyond the gloomy galley setups many urbanites are accustomed to at home. When one such culinary master and his husband called up designer Mark Cunningham for help with their duplex home in the West Village, he dreamed up a spin on the open-concept kitchen and living room.

69 bank street, ny, ny residence designer mark cunningham inc owner lapham location west village, ny
Back-of-House Prep Area Behind a jib door built into the cabinetry, Cunningham designed a hyperfunctional butler’s pantry, which contains a coffee station, a second dishwasher, and a pull-down
stool to access ceiling-height storage. The space allows the homeowners to keep the main island clear while hosting.

You won’t find a sprawling white marble island or bare shelving here: With the space’s industrial bones, “the biggest thing was trying to bring warmth,” explains the designer, who worked with Michael Gilmore of Weddle Gilmore on the
