Selecting a Kitchen Knife Set Practice
If you really want to learn how to cook, then you need to practice the concepts taught in this lesson. We've compiled some "edible exercises" along with some supporting recipes that will help reinforce what was taught in this lesson.
If you don’t already have a quality chef’s knife, go to a few knife stores and give a variety of knives a test drive. Any reputable knife store will let you hold the knives and most will let you try cutting with them if you’d like to. Make sure you buy an appropriate steel to maintain the sharp edge on your new knife.
If you already own knives, but they are dull, take them immediately to a reputable knife sharpener to get them professionally sharpened. Purchase a steel if you don’t already have one.
