A good chef’s knife is a cook’s best friend. But, it’s got to be sharp. In this video, Food Schmooze® contributor Chris Prosperi of Metro Bis restaurant in Simsbury, CT explains why it’s so important to keep your knives sharp. Did you know, for instance, that you can hurt yourself more with a dull knife than you can with a sharp one? Plus, a sharp knife is easier to use and cuts through your food with ease.
There isn’t just one way to sharpen a knife. Watch the video to see Chris demonstrate how to sharpen a knife with a wet stone, a steel, and the bottom of a ceramic mug.
