For years, every time Padma said, “Please pack your knives and go,” I’d be squinting at the TV, trying in vain to ascertain exactly what type of steel was being sheathed and taken away after the loss. Watching Top Chef, and the myriad knives everyone seemed to have, made me think I might just be doing it wrong. Ever since my husband came home one day with a WÜSTHOF LE CORDON BLEU 8-inch Cook’s Knife for my birthday, I had been making a go of it in the kitchen with one awesome knife for everything – and it seemed to be doing the trick. Was I wrong? Short answer: NO. I’m a cook – not a Samurai. But, you do need a good knife in the kitchen – an extension of your hand. The right blade can do everything if you guide it well.

I’m extremely excited to be partnering up with my friends at WÜSTHOF who are offering my readers (that’s you!) the opportunity to win an amazing, state-of-the-art knife that will become your go-to kitchen tool – and, who knows, maybe even help propel your mise en place prep skills to dazzling cooking-show-caliber heights!

Two (2) winners will receive one (1) WÜSTHOF CLASSIC 7-inch Hollow Edge Chai Dao knife – Suggested Retail Value $120


WÜSTHOF’s CLASSIC 7-inch Hollow Edge Chai Dao features a wide blade with a razor sharp PEtec fine edge that curves dramatically upwards as it nears the knife’s squared-off tip. The curved profile of the blade is perfect for chopping, mincing, dicing and slicing by employing an effortless rocking motion on your cutting board. Primarily designed for prepping vegetables and fruits, it will take on everything from shaving paper-thin shallots to cubing tough cuts of beef. WÜSTHOF CLASSIC knives are crafted in Solingen, Germany and are precision forged from a single piece of an exclusive high-carbon, stain-resistant alloy – engineered to enhance edge-retention and to facilitate re-sharpening. WÜSTHOF’s Precision Edge Technology ensures that the razor sharp blades have absolutely equal angles on both sides, an increased sharpness of 20 percent and will maintain their edge for twice as long as traditionally crafted blades. All WÜSTHOF knives are fully guaranteed to be free of defects in craftsmanship.
