A Chef's Toolkit
For any professional or home chef their knife roll and accompanied tools allow them to idealize their creation into reality and on to the plate. But what are these tools? And how important are they really to making great food?
Among chefs there is a collective agreement of the basic necessary items that are vital to cooking, many of which you can probably guess like a large sinister looking chefs knife, maybe a few smaller ones for various purposes, a peeler, spatula, tongs ect.
But while each chef may have these same few items there are also a vast array of different tools that have a unique purpose that can help to optimize the abilities of the chef to make interesting, fun and delicious food. So let's explore some of these tools, their purpose and which ones may be an essential add-on to your culinary arsenal.
While these are just a few of the basics, they can serve to get you through many cooking tasks and help you to elevate your food by using proper preparation and presentation techniques. It’s important to note that for any caliber of chef it is of the utmost importance to keep good care of all of your tools, a dull knife is potentially much more harmful than a sharp one.
Being equipped with the right tools not only allows you to create more amazing foods, it also ensures that you are working safely and having an enjoyable experience cooking.
