NOW I SEE what's going on here!

You 2 are somehow managing to make enemies on an innocuous forum like COOKING and we young innocents get hit with the residual flack!

I refuse to take this lying down!

That would work for me too Pony - it's a great idea.

You should never ever give a knife as a gift to friend or family, only to enemy..........
I have tested that theory and am now convinced.

Other than having a cook for a few days I'd really like to have an Espuma (foamy food) maker - but since I'm not sure it's a thing I'd enjoy using I'd like to have one just to give it a try.
And I'd enjoy having an idea book with lots of pictures for making little kids meals -that they'll actually eat.
So much of the stuff that's online is too complex for a small child's appetite and tastes.

I have the Victorinox and they are extremely good for the price. But the Shun really feels like an extension of your hand. It is so well balanced. And the edge is really long lasting. If you can afford it, splurge.

I have both an 8 and a 6. Small hands. I use the 6 inch more often.

I have had the chef's knife for over 25 years, it's traveled the world with me. The black handle has faded somewhat to a grayish over black, but the blade is great, it fits my hand, and though I've tried many others from expensive (though not shun) and cheap this is the one I reach for over and over.

Victorinox Swiss Army 8-Inch Fibrox Straight Edge Chef's Knife

Victorinox 47521 10-Inch Chef's Knife, Black Fibrox Handle

Cook's Illustrated rates these knives very well - and they are pretty reasonably priced, too. I gave the 8 inch to my son when he moved out on his own. He's not much of a cook or anything, but I wanted him to have a decent knife.

I just dream over a beautiful Shun...

April,
You should never give sharp objects as a gift (That's what my grandma usta say), you can sell them for a penny or a nickel~~~I gave (sold) my daughter some Forschner knives, Chefs, bread, Slicing ect. They are made by the "Swiss Army Knife" Company and are highly rated by Cook's Illustrated. You don't have to keep them locked up in a safe as you do with Shun.

Yes, it seems I make it there every 20 years or so, ever since I was a kid. I was always in love with those Danish bakeries and the cases full of decadent, wonderful, unique sweets! hmm...that would make a nice road trip. Maybe visit Hearst Castle on way. A quirky little place called Nepenthe. The Madonna Inn. Driving Hwy 1. ahhhhhhhh..............

btw...I couldn't find anything delicious to mailorder from Solvang :-(

Kay Shepherd says:
Yeah, a nice Shun is what's been calling out to me....do you use 8 or 10 inch?

I love my bamboo cutting board. It's so kind to knives. As for a chef's knife, I highly recommend the Shun Classic, which Williams Sonoma often runs specials on.

Kay Shepherd says:
I use nice Wusthof 8 inch knife...I keep thinking I might want a really nice 10 inch knife. Along with that I'd love a really good cutting board...nice and roomy - my current one is small to mid-sized and made of bamboo. It's lightweight so that's good, but I don't really love it.

It's been a while, but nothing changes there does it?

You know that big place at the end of town? THAT'S where you get pastries!

oooooooh.......Solvang! I haven't been there in decades! Do they still have all those awesome little bakeries and restaurants and shops all quaint and dutch and stuff? Do they have mail order? (gonna google that next...what an exquisite gift idea you've plopped into my head!)

Check out the Emile Henry Pizza Stone:

Emile Henry Flame Top Pizza Stone, Black

It results in really crisp crust and is easy to clean cheese drippings off of it.

My pizza stone broke a couple of months ago. I'd like that and a nice pizza cutter. Mmmmm, petit fours from Solvang!

hI pArrOT!
It is amazing at how much yo can feed yourself with just One good knife hey?! I did a naturapath menu plan for one week and I was amazed at how little effort and implements it took, it was literally my chef knife and chopping board and also the best I have felt in forever! But steak is just tOO gOOd sO I am a rebel in da kitchen now, meaning I know what is gOOd fOr me but I just cannot be so wholesome!
My Christmas Wish would be that Cattle undergo a metamorhysis and be made just out of Fillet! Seriously, who can fOOk up a fillet?

Don't have any kitchen gadgets or gizmos on my list....but there are lots of cookbooks that have caught my eye. I've got just about all the tools I need. I've put plenty of vegetarian and vegan cookbooks on my list, DH will pick out one or two. We're not completely vegetarian and nowhere near vegan, but I've found these books, with the emphasis on fresh fruits, veggies and whole grains, are a healthy way to get started on new ideas. If I want to add meat....I can. We are eating for the future, not just for today, and I need many, many healthy years with my grandkids. Once in a while though, I just gotta have me some bacon......

I wish for a new tattoo, a kitten or a puppy, a plane ticket to see my grandbabies and a box of gourmet Petit Fours.

I swear by the Kuhn Rikon. So easy to use and always accurate.
