THE CORRECT KNIFE – CRUCIAL IN THE KITCHEN!

Because food is one of our passions, we do not only like to treat our guests to our delicious Rotisserie lunches, but we like to inspire them to cook at home! Our Cooking Classes and Shop filled with all things culinary will inspire anyone to get into the kitchen and try a new recipe or two. You will find that having the right tools just make cooking so much easier and much more fun!

Ask any chef or passionate home cook about their most essential kitchen aid or tool and they might go on and on about their knives!  Just read this blog on the importance of kitchen knives by Truefoodie.

We stock a lovely selection of knives and should be able to provide you with the correct one regardless of the task at hand.

Chef’s Knife

The most important and versatile of them all. Bigger with a blade of 16 – 20 cm, this knife is used for classic French preparations such as julienne, brunoise, baton and chiffonade. When buying a Chef’s knife, consider what works for you – a heavier knife such as the Michel Bras Chef’s Knife (R5699.00) or perhaps a lighter weight such as the Global Chef’s Knife (R849.00)

Serrated Knife

Better known as a Bread Knife, this knife is ideal for items that are soft in the middle such as bread, tomato and melons. The toothed blade enables cutting without squashing.
