There have not been many kai posts on the domestic scene lately. Primarily because I have returned to work and therefore lack the hours in the day to prepare pies and pre-mades during the day, and secondly because I tend to make, and remake, things I have already posted. But today I am home with the sickliwinks and thought I would put our new knives through their paces. Given as a belated wedding gift, these sharpies have been coveted by Justin for quite some time. A set of 6 super sharp Global’s.
I should add here that I am not really one for knife-wifery. I don’t even really know which knife to use for what task. But the big boy slid with ease through the whole chicken I butchered to make the Ray McVinnie chicken pot pies (modified to use 2 breasts and 2 thighs) and the little stumpy one had a particularly satisfying feel while chopping though brown button mushrooms and frozen free-range bacon to make a slapstick bacon and egg pie.
