I had the chance to see Alton Brown live several years ago at the Tennessee Theater. He is as interesting and entertaining in person as he is on his various TV shows. We have highlighted his video videos on turkey carving and sabrage in the past, and I have a couple of more today for your Sunday perusal.
I share Alton’s disdain for single-use kitchen gadgets. It is infinitely better to learn basic knife cuts. My grandmother and mother love things like this and I have donated countless examples to charity over the years. George Foreman Quesadilla Maker anyone?
Since it is a stretch to qualify the above as “knives” I am including a great Alton Brown primer on Shun knives. Not a funny, but worth a watch.
