The Essential Kitchen Knives Every Home Chef Needs
If you are just starting your knife collection, there are a few essentials that will cover most basic kitchen tasks:
- Paring knife: for topping and tailing vegetables, and prepping small ingredients
- Chef's knife: a larger knife, for chopping bulky root veg, dicing and cross-chopping herbs or finely-diced meat.
- Serrated knife: for tomatoes or bell peppers that have a shiny, slightly tough skin.
- Boning knife: for preparing meat and fish, with a long flexible blade that bends to follow the line of bones, for a cleaner slice.
