Or, more accurately, “How I maintain diplomatic relations when cooking on the griddle in my Mother-in-Law’s kitchen”.
I was going through photos from this last year and had a laugh at this one. I can’t remember what it was I was making, I think I was using it to sear a beef tenderloin, but this was the defensive wall that went up around the stove in my MIL’s kitchen. Obviously, cleanup was a breeze!
Though you don’t need to go to extremes like this to prevent grease splatter, while anti-splatter screens mostly work, consider some strategic foil placement next time you’re pan frying or searing to avoid having to clean every crack and crevice around your stove.
