Buy All The Things – Beautiful Kitchen Tools

I love hosting dinner parties. When we were in our early 20s I started a weekly turn based cooking night between 4 friends appropriately called “Wed Night Dinner”. Later on when life events came up we eventually disbanded this tradition. A few years later I reinstated dinner nights with a bunch of coworkers and this was then “Thurs Night Dinner”. Oddly enough this cyclical dinner process disbanded after a couple we had invited broke up. Ooops.

Now that we’re in our 30s, I still enjoy hosting dinner parties. I absolutely love cooking and it’s far easier to cook for six people versus one. One thing that always comes up while we’re hanging out in my kitchen is where I get some of my kitchen tools, so here’s my Kitchen Gear Gift Guide*.

OOoh I love this knife! You can tell a good cook when they have good knives.

Ok so I haven’t become super fancy yet and into Japanese forged metal blades yet… but my knives of choice are the Wusthof Classic. Below are the other things that adorn my kitchen.

  1. John Boos Chop-N-Slice Maple Wood Reversible Cutting Board
  2. W├╝sthof – Classic 7″ Nakiri, Hollow Edge
  3. Wusthof Classic 5-Inch Hollow Ground Santoku Knife
  4. Hiware 35 Oz Glass Drip-free Carafe
  5. Wusthof Classic 7-piece Slim Knife Block Set
  6. Eva Solo Oil and Vinegar Carafe
  7. Willow and Everett Salt and Pepper Grinders
  8. Eva Solo Angled Aluminum Knife Stand
  9. All-Clad BD005710-R D5 Brushed Stainless Steel 5-Ply Bonded Dishwasher Safe Cookware Set

Enjoy cooking with these, I know I do.

*Sidenote: Don’t buy Asian people knives as gifts, it’s bad juju.
