My biggest pet peeve is (I assure you that I don’t have any!) The decision of picking a knife from the block is among my biggest pet dislikes. And then, I have to sit patiently as I cook. It’s probably a typical job for cooks at home. The rack is full of the jiggling knives, tiny and small and the roasting knife. The rack appears to be an array of beautiful women, perhaps not including the knife for roasting. I wasn’t thinking about the best knives for various ingredients. Also, sharpening knives will make cooking enjoyable. The process of cutting an onion was laborious and time-consuming. It resulted in tiny pieces that were unevenly size and scattered with indentation marks made by my knife as it attempted to slice the pieces into smaller pieces.
In a kitchenware store where I first came across the lighting. A knife that is appropriate for the way of cooking can make cooking enjoyable. Sharpening is a must, and even if you are feeling a bit sexy an forged knife can transform the onion into fine pieces.
Here’s a list of the knives I’ve used to help me to learn how to cook and could be useful to anyone who has lost their cooking skills or is in desperate need of an upgrade to their knife.
The Chef’s Knife
