Anthony Bourdain seems to have the answers to all of life's questions

March 14, 2018

The Unicorn Frappucino-hating chef has previously schooled us in the art of getting kids to try adventurous foods (his daughter was sucking down oysters at the age of three) and he’s also taught us why Kobe beef sliders are the worst trend to ever exist.

But Bourdain’s latest piece of advice is perhaps the most useful tip yet. At the premiere of his new documentary Wasted! The Story of Food Waste, he shared that the key ingredient to any kitchen is a good chef’s knife — even if you’re not an expert.

“As a starter chef knife, The Global is pretty good for a first timer,” says Bourdain.

Praised for its ability to slice through both tough vegetables and proteins, the lightweight, stainless steel G-2 is a Japanese knife made similarly to a Samurai sword. It also has a fine-tuned blade that’s as sharp as Anthony Bourdain’s wit. And if it’s good enough for Bourdain, it’s good enough for us. Peters Of Kensington stocks the Global Chef G-2.

If you are in the market for a knife, we are also fans of Shun – its knife block sets are a good bet for busy households who cook and entertain a lot. Williams-Sonoma stocks its range.
