How To Identify A Good Knife And Three Cutting Techniques

danispies's picture

SO... it's been a while since I have posted a new video, which is why I am so excited to be posting a new video today!!
Now I am super excited about this video for two reasons:
1. It's my first "how-to" video.
2. It's the first video that my husband and I produced all by ourselves (in the past we were working with one other person).
I plan to be back in full effect with the videos in the upcoming months, except this time I'll be aiming for one or two per month instead of one per week.

I have so many different ideas that I would love to shoot (including a simple alternative to a traditional thanksgiving turkey for November)!!

Okay, okay...enough about that...back to THIS video.

I decided to make my first "How-to" about "Basic Knife Skills" because I really do believe that this is the number one way to save time in the kitchen. Once you know what to do with your knife, half the work is done for you!

So check it out, and as always...I'd love to hear what you think!

And remember...be honset...kind...but honest!

GREAT teaching video! I have small hands and I find an 8" chefs knife too large. Steve uses thst one. My son gave me a Global knife for Christmas that has become my faourite for cutting veggies, trimming meats, etc. I still love my Kyocera knives, and of course my trusty Henkles Pro knives that I have had for over 30 years. Quality lasts-but you must keep knive sharp! I prefer using a stone and oil for sharpening.
