Regarding Cutco knives, I've never used them so I can't comment. I just use use 3 knives on a regular basis: my chef knife you usually see pictured, a paring knife, and a bread knife. The chef knife is a Calphalon I picked up for a song. The paring and bread knives came with a knife block I was given as a wedding gift along with some crappy steak knives. The only knife I really care about is the chef knife. I use it for just about everything and have it sharpened once a year.

The rich, "fancier" foods are usually the funnest to make and I reserve them for weekends, which schedule is the only time I photograph and post. I'll try to work in some more healthy dishes.

ya, i think we are going to get our chefs knives sharpened. We have 2 henkels. I like them but they are not that sharp. A store bought sharpener only does so much.

my bother has like a $300-$400 chefs knife. fuck that thing is amazing, sooooo sharp. he uses a whet stone to sharpen it. Lol that's a little to intense for me.

cutco is actually generally very nice knives.

their serrated blades really do hold an edge for a long while and are a great weight in the hand and the straight edge stuff is a good build and weight as well.

their fish fillet knife is probably the best thought out utility knife in existence

I don't have a cast iron pan though, do you have any other tips?

Where did you get sushi grade tuna?
Where in DC do you live? I love your kitchen!

You dragged your lady with you for that crazy, sudden move?

Glad to see you're back! The tuna looks fantastically good! I love that counter top too

I'm from Shreveport. I rarely went on hunting or fishing "trips" to be honest. I always fished in whatever lake/pond/creek was closest, which mostly meant Cross Lake. As for hunting, I typically just went out in the woods with a gun or bow. I've never actually had a hunting license.

You can do this in any heavy bottomed skillet. Cast iron is best, but stainless steel would work as well.

I buy my fish at Whole Foods, which I shop at a lot since I can walk to it. I've seen good quality stuff at my local Harris Teeter, too.

I'm technically a 2-3 blocks outside of DC. I live in Downtown Silver Spring.

Yeah, but she was all for it. We had been trying to leave the deep south for a while and we had both applied to jobs in Raleigh, NC when this fell into my lap. I'm making way more money here, she found herself a fantastic job teaching French & English at a small DC private school, and we both have some real grad school options finally.

Japanese whetstone and strop is the only way to go. One of my ex's was a chef and taught me how to use them. If you start practicing on a mid-ranged knife you will get the hang of it pretty quickly.

What a wonderful recipe. There was a restaurant I used to go to that had something similar and I was always wondering how they made it.
Thanks!
