With winter just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to get your kitchen ready for the cosy months. Here are a few tips from World Kitchen to get you started with dinner sets.
Do a ‘winter clean’ of the fridge and pantry
It’s time to do a thorough check of your fridge and freezer, to get rid of any old sauces, salad dressings or old food. Now is the perfect opportunity to give the fridge a wipe down and de-mould. Go through the pantry as well and make a list of the winter essentials you need to see you through the next few months. Make sure to include plenty of legumes and stocks. If stews are a favourite for you, you can save by opting for cheap cuts of meat and keeping them in your freezer, as they’ll become tender through slow cooking.
Check your utensils and appliances
You won’t be needing those BBQ utensils for a while! Rearrange your cupboards and pull to the front any casserole dishes or pots that you will need for your winter cooking. If you have any electric appliances like a slow cooker, it’s a great idea to plug them in and check they’re in working order so they’re ready to go when you need them.
Give the kitchen a decor overhaul
While it might be dark outside, it doesn’t need to be that way in the kitchen! Why not invest in some warm coloured dish towels to brighten things up? A matching rug is perfect for keeping toes warm on chilly mornings.

Find some great new recipes
Winter is all about hearty stews and warming dishes. It’s time to pull out all the recipes you love for chilly evenings, and find some new ones. Add them to a folder (whether it’s a physical or electronic one) so you can peruse them easily and decide your meal plans.
