How Important are the right Knives for Chefs?

Almost every one of us knows a little bit of cooking in our lives. But can we compare ourselves with the professional chefs even if we are one at homes?

Cooking is not difficult. All you need is good ingredients, recipe and some tools. But what most of us fail to notice is the importance of these tools. Kitchen knives are counted among one of the most important tools for a cook. And the techniques to use them efficiently makes a cook chef.

So, the knives are a big thing for such chefs. These utility knives give them their whole identity, hence should not be taken lightly. Let's see why knives are so important for them.

Better Control

Chefs are known for their speed. A lot of orders come sprawling in that it becomes difficult to manage if you are slow in chopping. A good set of professional kitchen knives will give a chef better control over his hands, hence making the task easier and faster. And this control also defines the quality of chef. Better control means that chopping would be smooth, unnecessary time would not be wasted, and the dish would come out ready much faster.

Give Texture

Right chopping also helps give better texture to the vegetables being cut. And that can be possible only when you have the right knife for the right kind of vegetable.

For example, let's talk about potato. If you need to make french fries, you will need a different kind of knife. But if you have to make any other vegetable with potato, you would need a different knife.

In short, whichever vegetable you pick, the style of cutting them, in order to give a beautiful presentation to the vegetable, is done only when you have a good quality knife.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
