  • Have Greater Control over Household Food Cost: Learn to Turn Whatever’s in the Kitchen in to Dinner TonightI’ve been a cook and then a chef for about 17 years. I’ve had thevery good fortune of being taught from a young age how to prepareexquisite, tasty meals. Largely everyone in my family is a goodcook; some very, very good, and some better than others.Following those early teachers – my family – were a series offoreign and domestic, highly trained and extremely talented,world-class chefs. No one you have seen on the Food Network’scooking classes , and no one widely known to the masses likeGordon Ramsay or Jamie Oliver, but most certainly extraordinarycooks by any measure. I think I’m qualified to teach you manyskills and techniques which can be put into action immediately.You will have to take my word for it, for now.There’s one thing that’s really holding households back in terms ofcooking and it’s ‘the recipe.’ It’s really a crutch, an anchor. Peopleare stuck without a recipe and can really only resort back tomethods and dishes which they have been exposed to by their past– things they have eaten and old recipes which they have mastered.If you want to have greater control over your household food cost,you have to learn to only use recipes for inspiration. That’s it. Onmy website ThriftCultureNow.com, I only ever present recipes inmy free cooking classes as guides—not gospel. My purpose is toexpose you to the information necessary to mastering techniqueswhich you can apply to a HUGE variety of meats, poultry, fish,shellfish, vegetables, sea vegetables, herbs, spices, fruits, nuts,grains, beans, dirt, water, air….just kidding about the last three.Anyway…get away from recipes and learn to really cook, utilizing
  • whatever is in the kitchen, right now. You get home from work,look in the cupboards and in the fridge to see what’s there, and justbang out a beautiful meal for you and your loved ones. No recipe.That’s what you’re going to do.In keeping with our mission of presenting you with the bestsolutions we can find for cutting household costs and living athrifty life (building wealth!), I will outline why this informationwill dramatically lower your food cost as your learn and apply it.In a nutshell, if you’re constantly using recipes then you’reconstantly buying ingredients that you don’t already have in yourkitchen. If you’re making these extra trips to the grocery storeyou’re not only wasting productive time, but you’re also wastinggasoline and risking getting sucked into unnecessary impulse buyswhile in the store, and your food cost skyrockets. You want toavoid over shopping.Being able to cook using a variety of fundamental techniques willallow you to cook whatever is in your kitchen. You will steer clearof fast food and dining out excessively, and you will avoid buyingprocessed food from the freezer aisle in the centre of the grocerystore (no man’s land), because it will be a snap for you to whip uptasty and healthy dishes using whatever you have.Secondly, in terms of thrift and our new and exciting ThriftCulture, being able to cook anything and turn it in to an exquisitemeal can turn you in to a master buyer of all foods. It’s prettystupid to buy ingredients that you don’t know how to prepare—ifyou’re serious about frugal living, there isn’t any room in yourfood cost budget for ingredients that you don’t know how toprepare, in a variety of ways. You run the risk of destroying theingredients and thus flushing your hard earned money down thedrain. So, that’s all about to come to an end.
