Have Room to Work But Keep It CloseTip #5
"I think it's important to have enough room at the work stations but keep the stations close so that the chef does not have to go far to get anything," says Chef Little. Getting exercise is great but not necessarily while you're trying to prepare a meal, wash the dishes and set the table.
If there are certain ingredients you use regularly, keep them close at hand. "I try to keep my flour, sugar and corn starch out in glass jars to make them accessible," says Chef Little. Choose pretty containers and you'll be adding a decorative element as well as a functional one.
