The perfect kit for a home cook looking to build, practice and perfect the art of building flavors and cooking recipe free.
Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat by Samin Nosrat is a James Beard Award Winning book that aims to teach cooks how to manipulate and bring out the best possible flavors. With this book as your guide, the two Tojiro 'DP' VG-10 Stainless steel knives will be your trusty workhorses. Corrosion resistant and durable, these knives will stay sharp for a while and can tackle just about anything you put under them.
The Konosuke Hinoki Cutting Board is naturally anti-microbial, lightweight for easily moving around the kitchen, with a swivel stand to keep it upright while drying. Using this long-grain softwood board will increase the edge life of your knives. The cherry wood spatual feels great in the hard and won't scratch your cookware or get hot near the stove (not flameproof, it's wood).
Top it all off with a kitchen legend, the Kuhn Carbon Steel Peeler. Coveted by home cooks and hoarded by professionals. (Stainless steel peeler pictured, but not available).
