Now that I am giving Paula Deen a run for her money in the kitchen (or something like that), I am getting more comfortable trying new recipes with the help of my Chicago Cutlery DesignPro Knives. Recently, I made a Ham and Cheese Quiche that was not only delicious, but Weight Watchers friendly, too! And today, I decided to make some Chicken Salad with celery and walnuts. While I was using my Chicago Cutlery Chef’s knife to chop the celery, I thought I would give you a quick tutorial on the proper use of the knife.
It’s really that simple. I love that the knife has a textured handle which makes it feel comfortable in my hand without the fear of slipping. Chopping the celery was so easy and did not require much pressure or effort at all. With my other knife, I notice a lot of strings left on the celery that weren’t neatly cut. The Chicago Cutlery knife allowed a clean slice of each and every piece.
My overall experience with Chicago Cutlery has been very positive. I have become much more confident in the kitchen which has allowed me to explore different tastes and textures when meal planning. My husband and daughters are very thankful as I think they were becoming very tired of the same old recipes each week. Now that I have mastered the Chef’s Knife, I can’t wait to move on to new techniques!
