Re: Knife recommendation for a friend

Kono HD Western handle was exactly where my head went to, given its in stock and intended to be the 'one' knife. I'm assuming she'll continue to use her old knife as a beater. I did point that one out to her and she is contemplating that one. I told her nor to hurry since they have baby bills and a...

Re: What did you cook today?

Another thing I like about the Misen rondeau (that I neglected to mention earlier) is that because of its low sides, it's an easy reach-in on the cooktop. It's also easier to clean than a stock pot. Being a mere 5'10", these are advantages to me. I can relate. I'd like to say I'm a mere 5'10&q...

Re: What did you cook today?

That looks good. I lol'd at your comment about spring onions because, like you, I vowed to never run out of them again. Now, I get them every time I shop and it drives the Mrs. a little bit crazy. I told her I was going to put some under her pillow for safekeeping. She was not amused. :lol: I would...

One thing I've really come to understand over the past several months is the immense value and versatility of water in cooking. It was my top ingredient of 2020 . . . seriously. Thanks for sharing that write up. I'm inclined to agree there's something really valuable in that finding. I'm starting t...

Wow! When I'm in the next house and Mrs. Chappy's ban on new kitchen equipment is lifted, that Challenger has my name on it.

Seriously though, I love seeing your bakes and it encourages me to practice. They're awesome.

Re: Wok suggestions?

As an aside I think this thread has altered the way I look at any gas-related things forever. I have to replace my tankless water heater and every time I see this 199,000 it makes me dream of wok'ing with that much BTU :lol:

Re: What did you cook today?

Really interesting responses Ronnie and Gladius. Makes sense on the sequencing of ingredients. Love the collection of clay pots too. Today was getting RID of some fingerling potatoes that were beginning to sprout, some wilting parsley, and kale. So it was poached egg on kale with garlic and shallot,...

Re: Sink Bridge Curiosity

I have the Shapton stone holder and a Naniwa sink bridge. I prefer the sink bridge because it is easier to apply water/rinse, and for me the ambient light is best over the sink compared to anywhere I could use the stone holder. I love the Naniwa, which I bought from CKTG. I use the stone holder on t...

All this talk about Soy Sauce. Have you tried Yagisawa Shoten Company's "Miracle" Soy Sauce? I have a bottle, but can't figure out how to order more. The ex-boss that was living in Japan 5 years ago has moved back to the states. I tried to get Mark to carry it, but he's sticking to knives...

Re: 'Touching up' an edge: when, how, and what to use

That's a really great suggestion. Adding that to my notes to try for the next time. Thank you.

I also managed to sharpen my haircut scissors fit this first time due to this forum :)

Re: 'Touching up' an edge: when, how, and what to use

Just a follow up to this thread to say thanks again for all the advice. It really helped me today when I was diagnoing my Masagake Koishi 150 petty today. Ended up dropping right down to 500 and putting a tiny burr on before removing and refining. Two things I learned today, in case helpful to other...

Re: What did you cook today?

I use Ohsawa which you can get through Amazon...and Kroger. It is still somewhat pricey, but since we don't use a lot, its very good. You have to look at AVAILABLE FROM THESE SELLERS on Amazon link and it's like 11.99 shipped. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01FL78IB4/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=...
