Economy Gastronomy's Paul Merrett says: Always have a roll of clingfilm handy to wrap up leftovers. Cheese prefers tin foil, and wrapping fresh herbs or lettuce in a clean, damp cloth prolongs their quality.

More tips from celebrity chef Paul Merrett:
- Take 5 mins to knock up a compound butter: whiz a pat in the food processor with lemon zest, garlic, parsley, chilli flakes and seasoning, then wrap it in clingfilm like a sausage and freeze. Now all you have to do is slice a fat disc off to finish anything from steak to prawns to bruschetta.
