Over the next few weeks, I will be learning a new skill… knife skills. No, not throwing knives (though that would be fun!). But, how to properly use kitchen knives.
I am excited to announce that I have been selected to participate in the Chicago Cutlery Ambassador program!
I need this!
I am so deficient in knife skills. My knowledge of different knives only extends to butter knives, bread knives and steak knives. Other than that, I have no idea what different knives are used for.
A paring knife… maybe for chopping fruit?
A chef’s knife… for cutting meats or larger fruits such as melons?
I don’t cook much, but I would love to and know that with a better knowledge of different knives and how to use them, I would be able to.
The three knives I received to practice with are all Chicago Cutlery DesignPro Knives. I have a paring knife, a scalloped bread knife, and a chef’s knife.
I’m looking forward to learning more about each of them in the coming month. I want to learn the proper way to use each type of knife, and how to cut certain foods more efficiently.
So far I have only used the paring knife. I used it just yesterday to slice some zucchini. Not exactly sure if this was the correct knife to use for that job, but that is what I hope to learn. The knife did wonderfully. It was easy to hold and sliced through the zucchini like it was butter!
Keep watching, I’ll be hosting a giveaway from Chicago Cutlery in a future post!
