Keep rolling with the punches there dude, and take a look at, I don't know, the what did you cook last night thread and realize gravity knows what he's talking about.

For someone complaining about knife obsessives you sure do sperg out with the best of them.

He's rather good cook, but not because of his fancy knives. Certainly you could have prepped any of those dishes equally with western- as Japanese-pattern knives.

Cutlery as well as all other tools in the kitchen are a means to an end, not an end in themselves.

I was asking for advice regarding additional knives, not what to replace my current knives with, since I am very well satisfied with those. Augmentation, not replacement.

So does anyone have any dining suggestions for the lake Mary/ Sanford area north of Orlando? Looks like I am going to be here for at least another two weeks and I have eaten at almost every restaurant in my immediate vicinity. It's all expense account type places, and if someone suggests shula's again I'm going to snap.

I know it's a long shot but gotta ask.

Warzone to Warzone. Man, you have it rough.

Oh, and nothing. Florida North of Palm Beach and outside of Tampa and Jax is just unrelenting nightmare-zone.

hey, Kozmo -- speaking as someone who actually has and uses anime-hair colored JAPANESE knives that cost barely :tenbux: a piece, and would never ever spend more than $100 on a knife: the people telling you you're wrong about knives and kind of an rear end in a top hat? Spot-on.

How many Japanese knives have you tried other than your friend's, out of interest?

I use Western knives, but if I was buying new knives now I'd try a few Japanese ones, just to see if I liked them more.

I do think your GRORIOUS NIPPON crack was bordering on racist, by the way. Gravity is hardly blameless in this little spat, but still.

It has been a couple of years and I haven't tried any since (I presume MACs don't count since the onces I've tried were western-style). And it seems the local Chinese shop has inexpensive Japanese knives for sale. I should buy a set once easter is over and use them to spell out some sort of offensive message and post it here. Then try them out, most likely confirm my earlier impression and then probably never use them again, to be honest.

Or give them away to a friend who'll appreciate them more than I will.

Duly noted. It was meant as a dig at the incessant fawning over Japanese culture and craftsmanship that seems to be so prevalent in nerd society, but I see what you mean. No racism was intended.

I feel like I'm surrounded by invisible trolls. They're everywhere.

I was arguing with one of the cooks at work yesterday and he said that practically all pasta contained eggs. I'm pretty sure this is utter horseshit. I know that plenty of varieties of wheat noodles do contain egg, but just as as many are water+flour. Confirm/deny?

Assuming you're only talking about Italian pastas, they don't. Most semolina pastas are just semolina and water. If you're talking about all noodles, well, rice, bean thread, cornstarch, wheat+lye, etc. are all eggless.

Italian style pasta, yes. The more toll the better. There's a Keller spec going around with two folks to three cups flour, plus six yolks. Shits is delicious. Other noodles, maybe so and maybe not, but pasta, yes please.

Everybody else kindly take it to helldump.

Hello JacquelineDempsey, welcome to the thread!

The other guys are too busy right now, with giving themselves brazilians with their knives and comparing the stubble of a japanese knife to the one of a swiss army knife to greet you, and I am sorry, on the other hand, that is why we love them so!

I use Globals, because they're ok, I use a machine to sharpen them because I am a Twat, and I let everybody who wants use my knives, and I don't feel bad if one chips (never happened) or gets dropped. The reason why I do so is because I want my kids to be able to use them, and also because I am too much of an uneducated swine to discern between really good knives and poor knives... Also - I do expect people who own USD400 knives to own Hobart, and not kitchen aid, otherwise it may only be for show?

I now have glorious socialist vacation, and have decided to make it a 2 week one this time (because of socialism, Jesus may have died too).

Cooking will ensue!

Also: Dane, We're a few guys who're starting a food club thing, a few restaurant owners, a few EM and DM winning cooks and so on - something that could interest you?

Edit: The one exception to my Globals is my Dick meat axe (is it called a cleaver?), which I bought because to tell someone "This is my dick knife" is great fun while slamming it agains the block!

Edit II: Oh, and my laguiole steak knives.

cut me in on that food club (hahahahahahahahahaha lovely pun, but seriously) I'm a average ameteur cook at best, but I'm learning. I've got a few friends in the business, one works at Reinwalds, and the other works at Orangeriet, so I'm getting my gastronomy education through them

The cai dao (tsai dao) is not a cleaver. It's made for finely shredding vegetables and meat, hence the name (cai means vegetable). It's got an edge that would easily be broken and chipped on bone and should never be used for chopping through bony meat, also it's much thinner and lighter than Western cleavers who have thick blades for adding weight, and who are also usually ground with a concave edge to make it easier to maintain as you're working - meat wears down edges fast as hell, butchering demands you sharpen the blade all the time so usually you'll have a sharpening tool in your belt.

For actual cleavers the Chinese use either the traditional Western cleaver tool or a huge gently caress-off traditional cleaver with a tall, curved pointed blade, both of which are referred to as simply "qie rou dao".
