This weekend’s tip is all about greaseproof paper, one of my unsung kitchen heros.

Here are a few things you can do with it that you might not have tried:

  1. Use as a cartouche on a soup or stew to prevent liquid loss or skins forming
  2. Fold around meat (such as a chicken breast) to protect when pan-roasting
  3. Use to line a bowl before tossing and salting chips or french fries immediately after cooking
  4. Use on top of your chopping board when working with fish, it’s surprisingly grippy
  5. Wrap your cheese in greaseproof paper before storing in the fridge
