With many of our younger readers heading off into the world to fend for themselves for the first time we thought this would be a good time to take you through the things you need to know if you’re going to stave off scurvy and impress people you’d like to sleep with, all with a minimum of cost and time spent cleaning.
First up you’re going to need tools in the kitchen. If you’re lucky your parents will give you a few hundred dollars for this purpose. You don’t need that much.
All you really need is:
1 decent sized knife
1 big pot (you can possibly get by with just the one wok in place of a frypan and a pot but it starts getting tricky if you want pasta or rice with your meal)
1 pair of tongs
1 stirring stick with a flat bottom
1 chopping board (not pictured)
There you go, anything else is wasteful frippery which will encumber you when moving and be a pain to clean.
Now take the money you saved, head down to the pub, and use it to buy a counter meal for yourself and free drinks for someone you’d like to have sex with.
