    What espresso cups do you use?

    I am wondering what you all use for espresso cups? Demitasse are too small and cappuccino cups maybe a bit too large for the drink I make most often. I purchased a couple of cortado glasses and like them so far but think I could do better...

    Cutting food in the sheet pan. Ugh.

    This is what was in my counter when I got home today. Marco parer vs aluminum... “I am not saying we can’t use custom knives on sheet pans.

    Cleaver ID Help Please

    I got this as a gift from a relative. It was given to her by a chef. She said she isn’t a butcher (she is a pastry chef) and passed it on to me. She is Japanese and said it was a Chinese knife.

    Checking in.

    I realize I haven't been around in a while. Well, I just had a baby. He was born on the 15th and his name is Otto. If I recall it was shortly after my first kid was born that I started lurking around here so this may mean I'll be around more. Anyway, here is a quick pic of a future Knife Knut.
