     Here are two videos that will cover everything you never thought you needed to know about knife and cutting board selection as well as many useful cutting techniques. Each video is about 10 mins. long.

Good Eats - American Slicer pt.1

Good Eats - American Slicer pt. 2

     I can tell you this from experience, after getting a new knife you may not realize how dull your previous knife really was so start slow.  Try to speed up and get too fancy and you may have a hard time the next time you're hitchhiking or trying to hail a cab. OUCH!

My two favorite knives, 6" Chef's knife and 7" Santoku.

The First Post

     The objective of this blog is to be a platform for me to share my passion for food and drink.  Content is sure to include recipes, restaurant reviews, demonstrations, links to outside sources, photographs, updates on my personal garden, and other tips and tricks in and around the kitchen. 
     I hope to update this page at least once a week with whatever inspires me and I hope to inspire you to embrace food as well.  Any and all feedback is welcome!!

Here is a few examples of the photography from my personal garden...
