The Importance of Good Knives

Eating a meal without a knife would be like making a sauce without using liquid or serving a winning dish without any enthusiasm. Although a lot of meals can be enjoyed with a fork or even a fork and spoon in the case of messy spaghetti recipes, a knife is a necessity if you are serving a steak or piece of meat, and not only any knife but a good knife.

Investing in a good set of knives means you can enjoy your meal to the fullest and not have to struggle with a poor quality knife. Even the most tender cut of steak deserves to be sliced with a good quality steak knife, and not sawed through with a bad one. Good knives are a must-have for the kitchen.

Choosing the Best Knives

As well as knives for preparing your raw ingredients, slicing, dicing, chopping, and so on, there are also knives for eating with, and we are talking about steak knives. These distinctive knives are comfortable to hold, neither too light nor too heavy, and you can choose from a range of styles depending on your personal preferences. Smooth or serrated, wooden-handled or otherwise, a good set of knives should last for many years. Consider a famous brand like Henckels, Briddell or Wusthof, or perhaps you have another favorite. Consider round-tipped or pointed-tipped ones.

You might already have a favorite kind if you eat at steakhouses a lot and have tried out various types, or if not then find out more about the advantages of both kinds. Using a good steak knife transforms eating your steak from a pleasure to a true joy. A good knife will glide effortlessly through the meat, cutting it cleanly and neatly, and good knives are always a great investment.

Hello, I'm Christine. Thanks for dropping by and welcome to Amazing Sauces. Food is a very important part of our family's lives, and I find a homemade sauce often finishes a dish perfectly. Whether you are making something with chicken, beef, pork, vegetables, an appetizer, or even a dessert recipe, a sauce is often the ideal finishing touch.

You will find many sauce recipes here, all conveniently in one place, from the classics like tomato sauce, béchamel sauce and cheese sauce, to gravies, marinades, and unusual ideas for sauces too like ginger-plum sauce or gorgonzola sauce.

Some sauces can be drizzled over the meal, while others are best served on the side. Some will work as a dip or sauce, while others are great for basting, marinating or adding a splash of color to a recipe. Try our creamy gravies with your breakfast, one of our international steak marinades for a sophisticated spin on dinner, or learn how to make a classic béarnaise or rich red wine sauce to complement your dish.

Thanks for visiting,
