    What's your favorite recipe to test drive a new knife?

    Just curious what people's ideas are for putting a knife through its paces. Anyone have any standard recipes they use when they first get a new knife?

    Anything with mirepoix, chiffonade on herbs, garlic shaved like Paulie's, root vegetables and raw proteins. Then I like to see how they carve.

    Fruit salad...lots of different textures and contrasts between the skin + the interior....plus my wife loves fruit salad, so bonus! All the acids/sugars help with understanding your new carbon too.

    Yup - haven't made Coleslaw, or fried red cabbage in a while - thanks for reminding me to make some.
