I already asked a question tonight, but since reading more into your blog I have tons more! Just one for now though.(Absolutely loving it all by the way) I got married 4 years ago, eloped so no gifts lol, and we've been building our house and kitchen from
A good chef’s knife, paring knife and a serrated knife.
A couple of different sized sauce pans, skillets (8”, 10” fry pans), high temp oven-safe Dutch oven (I have Calphlon one— Le Cruset is not in my budget), a grill of some sort (we have Weber gas started charcoal grill), iron skillet is great but not necessary. Cookie sheet and cooling rack.
Mixing bowls— glass, stainless or bamboo composite.
Measuring cups and spoons.
Silicone spatulas— one hard for flipping, one softer for scraping. Wooden spoons (one that’s got a straight edge is good for stir-frying); slotted spoon; tongs; peeler; masher (with small holes works best); ladle; microplane grater (zester), larger grater; pastry brush (good real bristle paintbrush).
