Just off the top of your head. If you want to call yourself a cook, what should they know how to do?

-a good simple marinade (olive oil, salt and pepper) it can really go a long way
-have two chopping boards (one for meats and the other for vegetables/fruit/herbs) to avoid cross contamination/food poisoning 😑
-have a thin cloth underneath the chopping board so it doesn't try to slip when you cut things on them
-sear ANY meat in a pan with olive oil (to lock in the juices), cook accordingly and ALWAYS rest the meat (so it can maintain juicy and not dry and tough)
-every kitchen/cook needs proper and basic kitchen utensils (measuring cups, measuring jug, spatula, wooden spoon, whisk, can opener, kitchen knife, chopping board, grater, scissors, tongs, sift/strainer and a ladle)2
