March 10, 2009: New Lesson on Knives: Sharpening a Chef’s Knife

A sharp chef?s knife is a must in the kitchen. Not only is a sharp knife much safer, it makes cooking much more enjoyable and more efficient. By learning how to sharpen your own knife, with your own hands, you will develop a more trusted relationship with your knife and begin to feel even more comfortable with it.

In this lesson, we are going to focus on sharpening the most commonly-used knife ? the chef?s knife. However, the techniques you learn here can be applied to most other knives in your collection.

Happy Cooking!
