Getting the kitchen into some sort of order before the Christmas and new year festivities take hold is a good idea. Perhaps in the summer holidays when all the windows and doors can be thrust wide open, there is more interest in getting to grips with sorting out the cupboards and drawers. Kneeling down and pulling out those old utensils and mixers from the back of the corner cabinet. Routing about under the sink to see what on earth is stashed in the basked under the stop-cock. There are endless tasks that can be usefully completed then to make the run up to the businest catering session quite calm. In the circumstances.
And what to do with the newly spruced up cupboard space – well there are all those well meant Christmas gifts coming your way – new hand blenders, vegetabls spiralizers etc. etc.
