White Paper On The Cutting Board
- America's Test Kitchen has a white paper on essential kitchen equipment -- one of the nicer little pdf giveaways I've seen.
- I've been kicking around some kitchen sites, looking to buy a few odds and ends. A good instant-read thermometer. A chinois. Some squeeze bottles. As a general observation, a lot of Web retailers who stock numerous items don't tell you nearly enough about each one. If you're selling stuff, you gotta sell.
- For example, Linda has a 12" Sabatier chef knife that's too big for our knife block. There are lots of places that'll sell you a knife block, but none explain why this is the one that you really, really want. And none seem to give you a clue as to whether it'll take a big knife or not.
- Bonus link: insanely cool, custom-tailored chef jackets. Just in case.
