Discovered the best kitchen gadget ever, chops ,stirs and tells you stories, My daughter aged 5 helped me out with this ,and I got to find out all I ever need t know about pepper pig and apparently nasty ladies who have docked my dogs tail (patently bothers her)
She doesn't live with me so time together is limited but I am determined to teach her life skills one of which is cooking
Steak tagliatelle coated with diane sauce mushrooms and seasoned on the board
My fave kitchen gadget is a hand held blender just because I love making soup. Followed a close second by a set of Japanese knives , sharp enough to slice through a finger nail into the flesh below. And doesn't half hurt!!
Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false and by rulers as useful.
The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive.
I let Phoebe chop the herbs using a cross chop technique fingers no where near the cutting edge,,gave her a sense of inclusion if I can get her to enjoy cooking then that's mission accomplished, Professionally worked with some good people and learnt a lot, but my original inspiration was my mum who gave the basics and on reflection was quite a good cook

That's a mouth watering meal you've made Andrew, got my saliva flowing!
A blunt knife is dangerous & no good in a kitchen.
My favourite knife is a Henkles paring knife, only a 4 inch blade but a joy to use on blood oranges etc., as it doesn't squeeze the fruit so not much juice is lost.
My daughter loves the I O Shen brand, she has a santoku knife, a beautiful knife indeed!
Never a problem thinking of gifts for her.
Learning to dance, where one step forward & two steps back is progress!
