Get the Tools to Cook like A Pro in Edwardsville, IL

September 30, 2016

After watching the Food Network, you may walk away inspired to create restaurant quality dishes in your own home. Without a formal culinary education, it can be intimidating to know where to start, but having the right tools will help you stay on track. Invest in a good set of knives, including a long serrated knife, a short serrated knife, a bird’s-beak knife, and a chef knife. These knives will cover the basics of anything you need to cut. In addition, pick up a flat whisk to help you get into the edges of your pan, and purchase a pair of blunt tweezers to make removing fish bones much easier. A general rule of thumb in the kitchen is to keep your work area clean, so don’t forget a bench scraper to keep things running smoothly.
