I have recently been inspired to start cooking more than a hamburger or steak. I'm trying to collect cookbooks and am buying the pans and other gear. My past experience at cooking was making my own meat sauce, meat balls, stuffed shells and food that really didn't require knife skills.
I have no knife skills at all but I try to emulate what I see on the Food Network
I have a Gerber chef knife, which has been in my husband's possession for decades. My husband sharpens it for me but it is still hard to get it through a head of cabbage
I have an average wooden cutting board
I have no preferences or prejudices about knives at all. I just want something good for me that will last and that I will enjoy using
I live in a remote area and will have to order a knife online
I am not strong. I'm 5'3" and 112 pounds and approaching the big 6-0.
Thank you so much...
