Wusthof Classic Chef's Knife : The heft of a chef's knife is intended to let gravity do most of the work. And because a firm, comfortable grip is essential, choose several knives from a wide variety of sizes that conform to your hand. About Wusthof Classic: Precision-forged blades of Wusthof's own high-carbon, stain-resistant steel alloy, for a lasting edge that is easy to resharpen. Distinctive bolster prevents your hand from slipping onto the blade. Handle is a virtually indestructible composite, buffed by hand for a smooth finish and triple-riveted to the full tang for optimum strength and balance. Dishwasher safe, but hand-washing is recommended. Made in Solingen, Germany.

Wusthof Classic Ikon 3.5-in. Paring Knife : Each knife in Wusthof's new Classic Ikon line is forged from a single piece of steel. The laser-tested blade is 30% sharper and holds an edge 30% better than the average blade - the sharpest Wusthof knife ever made. Precision forward bolster allows full usage of the blade when cutting and sharpening; second bolster on the heel provides additional heft to the handle and stainless beauty on the end of the knife, embossed with the Wusthof logo. Stainless-steel triple rivets permanently secure the handle to the tang of the knife. The contoured shape is unique for an elegant appearance, as well as superb ergonomic comfort. Easy to use and easy to sharpen, this peeling knife is a must-have for food preparation tasks. 3 1/2".

 Vegetarian Cooking For Everyone
Vegetarian Cooking For Everyone
Vegetarian Cooking For Everyone : The tenth anniversary edition of this landmark cookbook, with more than 325,000 copies in print, includes a new introduction from Deborah Madison, America's leading authority on vegetarian cooking. What Julia Child is to French cooking, Deborah Madison is to vegetarian cooking--a demystifier and definitive guide to the subject. After her many years as a teacher and writer, she realized that there was no comprehensive primer for vegetarian cooking, no single book that taught vegetarians basic cooking techniques, how to combine ingredients, and how to present vegetarian dishes with style. "Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone" teaches readers how to build flavor into vegetable dishes, how to develop vegetable stocks, and how to choose, care for, and cook the many vegetables available to cooks today. "Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone" is in every way Deborah Madison's magnum opus, featuring 1,400 recipes suitable for committed vegetarians, vegans (in most cases), and everyone else who loves good food. For non-vegetarians, the recipes can be served alongside meat, fish, or fowl and incorporated into a truly contemporary style of eating that emphasizes vegetables and fruits for health and well-being. "Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone" is the most comprehensive vegetarian cookbook ever published. The recipes, which range from appetizers to desserts, are colorful and imaginative as well as familiar and comforting. Madison introduces readers to innovative main course salads; warm and cold soups; vegetable braises and cobblers; golden-crusted gratins; Italian favorites like pasta, polenta, pizza, and risotto; savory tarts and galettes; grilled sandwiches and quesadillas; and creative dishesusing grains and heirloom beans. At the heart of the book is the A-to-Z vegetable chapter, which describes the unique personalities of readily available vegetables, the sauces and seasonings that best complement them, and the simplest ways to prepare them. "Becoming a Cook" teaches cooking basics, from holding a knife to planning a menu, and "Foundations of Flavor" discusses how to use sauces, herbs, spices, oils, and vinegars to add flavor and character to meatless dishes. In each chapter, the recipes range from those suitable for everyday dining to dishes for special occasions. And through it all, Madison presents a philosophy of cooking that is both practical and inspiring. Despite its focus on meatless cooking, "Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone" is not just for vegetarians--it's for everyone interested in learning how to cook vegetables creatively, healthfully, and passionately. The recipes are remarkably straightforward, using easy-to-find ingredients in inspiring combinations. Some are simple, others more complex, but all are written with an eye toward the seasonality of produce. Madison's joyful and free-spirited approach to cooking will send you into the kitchen with confidence and enthusiasm.
