Tells you how to select the best knife for your personal kitchen needs. Comment below! The first chapter will help you understand those knives better. The other way is to go to your favourite restaurant and ask the chef for the name of his knife sharpener. This comprehensive guide fills a gaping void in the literature of cooking. He explains not only the proper techniques for cutting, but also a variety of different cuts for poultry, meat and fish, including how to butterfly poultry and meat, how to fillet whole flat and round fish, how to debone poultry, meat and fish, and how to carve meat and poultry.

The illustrations help to give visual reference points for knives and their uses, which is essential in learning proper methods. So the sight of six shiny new knife-skills books had me getting into serious- denunciation mode about the newest culinary dream world. In contrast, the CIA Knife Kit book goes far beyond Hertzmann in dealing with both far more different types of cuts such as rondelles, ripple cuts, gaufrettes, ribbons, Paysanne, Tourne, Fermiere and decorative cuts. Chef Dez on Cooking, Volume 3 is an informative collection of the popular food column Chef Dez on Cooking, currently published across Canada and Washington State, along with over one hundred of his most popular and favorite recipes.

But with patience and purpose, you can learn a lot here. The essential reference for family favorites and specialty entertaining. Instead, cut a slice that is about as wide as it is long, noticing as you cut if the slice feels smooth or rough. Thus, a lion's share of the book's pages duplicate information. Knife Skills Illustrated Almost every recipe begins with an instruction: cut up a chicken, slice an onion, mince some garlic, dice a few tomatoes, or maybe peel an avocado.
