    Yeah, I do obey the traffic lights when I see cops and I immediately become the most polite person on the planet when I get pulled over. Learned my lesson w/ the recent spate of ticket blitzes in NYC.

    Jeremy, what kinda of cheffing you specialize in? All the chefs I know all are wonderfully competent all around but they all have a zest or passion for something in particular.
    honestly, i don't know yet and probably won't until i get my hands dirty. i do enjoy pastries and baking, but that's another area of study. if anything i would say, italian, such as tuscan/peasant fare. simple food with few ingredients but the freshest and best you can get. but who knows, we'll see.

    yum... I love cooking. I'm so not the pastries and baking guy. The oven is almost a foreign land to me.

    Don't really have enough experience yet to comment but my feeling with knives is the same as tools: the heavier and more steel the better. although i hear there are some ceramic japanese knives out that are really nice. for cooking in the home you don't need anything spectacular though.

    Oh, but a nice knife can make a huge difference! I just need to learn how to sharpen the damn things properly.

    I use a set of left-handed japanese cooking knives made by this guy. They blow my parents henkels out of the water and can't be beat for the price in my experience. Just remeber japanese steel is only sharpened on one edge so if your left handed make sure you get left handed knives.

    I like them tall enough so you can can a good groove goin' on with doing ones sous-chef responsibilities at the veggie station without skinning the knuckles. I prefer German or nice Japanese, but it's all in the balance and how the handle feels. That is just me though, the way a knife feels is a very individual thing.

    exactly. Any straight-blade knife can be sharp as long as you keep it sharpened. That's for home use anyway... a cheaper quality blade will dull faster, but I think that would only be a problem in a professional kitchen. But it's totally a totally different ballgame when you use a knife that has a bit of heft AND is well balanced.

    Of course, I nearly sliced the top of my index finger off a couple years ago while coring a cabbage, so perhaps I shouldn't be talking about knives.
