This is a foodie blog so you’re damn sure that I’ll be glorifying knives, pans, pots and even cutting boards. But, to a certain extent, you truly need an excellent knife sets to qualify as a foodie.
I’m not saying that you have to go out and pick up the most expensive knife you find but you really need a little bit of skills when it comes to picking the right kitchen knife.
My favorite budget kitchen knife of all time is none other than the Victorinox Chef’s knife. You can read about it in one of my older posts. You don’t have to be the richest person on earth to own good kitchen utensils. The art of
creating food is a fulfilling and enjoyable process but, it only works if you have the right tools.
For instance, take this recipe here. It requires the right ingredients and the right tools to make the perfect dish. If you cheap out on your kitchen utensils, please don’t expect a glorious masterpiece entree. If you like eating sushi, you will need a sharp knife to make precise cuts. Dull knives will ruin a perfect cut of Salmon. Don’t even get me started on the deboning process if you intend to cook more “exciting dishes”.
There are a whole lot of cooking styles out there so prepare yourself to be a pioneer. Experiment and fuse different type of cooking styles together, you may even discover a new masterpiece. Do what I do, “use your family as lab rats”. And, when you finally get the dish right, throw a dinner party and share it with your friends and family. Nothing beats spending time and bonding over some good food.
You would probably have figured out that cooking your own meals does save you a lot of money. With a little bit of practice, you may even learn to cook dishes that you’ll only find in fine dining restaurants. So, don’t cheap out when it comes to buying your cookware sets and knives. Invest in reliable kitchen utensils and they’ll serve you well.
