For two servings or perfectly light and fluffy scrambled eggs, you’ll need four large eggs, 20g (1oz) butter, salt and pepper. Lightly whisk the eggs and season well. In a small pan, melt half the butter over medium heat (too high and the eggs will dry out). When the butter is foaming, add the eggs and keep stirring with a wooden spoon. When they are three-quarters set, take off the heat, stir in the butter and serve.

You’ll need a ripe avocado to properly prepare it. With a sharp medium to large knife, slice through the avocado from top to bottom, cutting around the stone, then twist to separate the two halves. To remove the stone, you should be able dig it out with a teaspoon if it’s ripe enough. Now you can peel it – top to bottom is easiest.

An omelet is a speedy solution to a midweek meal or quick lunch so it’s worth getting it right. Two to three eggs will make an omelet for one person. A good non-stick pan makes all the difference. Add 1tsp of oil and get it as hot as you can. Beat the eggs with a fork then add to the hot pan. Allow to set a little then pull away the sides with a fork and swirl the egg around. When there’s just a little liquid left, fold over the omelet with a palette knife and tip onto a plate.

You can make a big batch of caramelized onions, turn them into onion jelly and store in the fridge. Finely slice red onions, then put into a frying pan with 2tbsp oil. Cook on a low heat, stirring occasionally, until the onions begin to release any water. Turn the heat up slightly but make sure you don’t burn them. This will take about 40 minutes. Then, add 1tbsp balsamic vinegar and 1tbsp brown sugar. Stir well.

Using a garlic crusher is fine if you just need a clove or two, but if you need a batch, try using a mortar and pestle. You get a more intense flavor, none of the garlic is wasted and you don’t have the fiddly job of washing the crusher. Just pound the garlic with a good pinch of salt, which helps to break down the fibers. Remember garlic burns easily, so if you’re adding it to fried onions, make sure the onions are pretty much ready first.

If you feel a little daunted by bread-making, why not try soda bread? It’s an instant bread as there’s no kneading or yeast required – in fact, the less you handle it, the better. You do need to eat it on the day it’s made, though it does make delicious toast and you can freeze it.
