Ok y’all, no recipe today, but I wanted to share something that will be helpful, no matter what you’re cooking – knife skills!
Now let me preface this by saying, the way I cut is not THE way to cut. I don’t believe there is such thing as “the” way. But I use my knives a bit more intensely than the average cook I’d say and have learned a few tricks, both from culinary school and just daily practice. It may seem trivial, but for anyone really wanting to amp up and enjoy their cooking routine, proper knife skills are a big step.
I’ve been buying and using Wüsthof knives for over a decade now, and they’re tops for me. This is not a sponsored post by them, but they did send me some (not all, but some) of the knives you see in this post and the video above. Here are links to the Cook’s Knife and Santoku I use, but anything from them is solid. I give them my enthusiastic and unpaid endorsement.
