Any level of cook can appreciate a tip that will get them through a busy market faster with as few bruises on their ankles as possible. Italian celebrity chef Giada De Laurentis has just the trick. Instead of fussing about writing your list separated into veg, meats and dried goods etc write it in the order that you walk through the supermarket.
So at your local market you walk straight into the produce aisle- more specifically (for me) the lettuce and salad ingredients. Further down the aisle I hit the potatoes, garlic ginger and chiles and onions and then and its yogurt at the aisles bend before turning into the fruit aisle.
So my list would go:
1 packet mixed lettuce
1 garlic bulb
Fage 2% yogurt
4 honey crisp apples etc
It happens to be something that I already do- and it helps me get in and out in record time. Who says you can only be so organised?
