This morning, my coworker Brooke sent out a link about her experience at a knife skills class, and I was wicked jealous. Knife skills are one of those basic cooking things that I always feel like I could be doing better but maybe can’t teach myself through trial and error or sheer instinct. I tend to like my veggies very little but get bored chopping about halfway through, and I feel like if I got one really good chef’s knife and learned to wield it with the power of a master samurai, this wouldn’t happen anymore. Any suggestions for a nice knife that will make carrots quiver with fear? Or should I just use my food processor?
