Wow, Inspiring Kitchen’s first interview!

Inspiring Kitchen was created as a means to share knowledge about housewares products, kitchen design, recipes, cooking tips, bridal registry advice and favorite finds. My goal is to showcase what we should have in our kitchens based on the type of cooking we like to do. Ways to use cookware beyond the obvious like what is written in the Le Creuset Dutch oven post and making bread. What knives you need in your kitchen by blade shape. And the latest trends found at the industry conferences: National Restaurant Association and International Housewares Shows. If you are looking for gifts related to your kitchen, cooking and entertaining, I hope you will take a look at what Inspiring Kitchen suggests like we did for Mother’s and Father’s Day.

Posted by | Cutlery, Knives | 36 Comments

This is the most asked question when I begin working with clients and the subject of cutlery comes up. They quickly say that they don’t want to buy a set because they won’t use all 20  knives included in the block. I totally agree with them!

There are three basic knives that most homeowners need in their kitchens:

Paring knife: 

paring

Serrated knife:

 

bread

Chef’s knife:

 

 premier chef

 

 

The paring knife does your detail work like peeling or slicing strawberries and mushrooms, the serrated knife helps you to easily slice anything with tough skins like peppers, tomatoes and breads, and the final knife is your chef’s knife.… Read more
