When you think of the word art, you usually think of a painting, sculpture, or photograph, right? Well July is the month where you need to change your idea of that word: it’s National Culinary Arts Month.
Cooking and baking are their own form of artwork: creativity is endless in this field. Even if you are not a person who is thinking of taking it to the professional level, you can still be creative with your recipes at home.

Some Engraved Kershaw Knives are made in the USA, and some are imported. Even the imported ones are high quality, and are made according to the specifications of the Oregon office of Kershaw. For the last 12 months, these are the most popular ones, by far.
The Volt has a beautiful bead blasted finish. Two other features that make this one a favorite are: SpeedSafe® assisted opening mechanism, and a fine grade of steel for the blade, 8CR13MOV. It comes with a reversible pocket clip.
The Ember is also a favorite, probably because of its compact size. Even though it is a small one, it still has the SpeedSafe® assisted opening and a convenient, built-in flipper to get the opening started.
People use a fruit knife to sample the inner area of watermelons, cantaloupes, and other fruits. They also use them to design tasty displays on serving trays. A great fruit (and vegetable) knife will have these qualities…
Size. The length of the knife, closed, runs from 4 5/8″ to 5 3/4″. People in the fruit business choose the size best suited for their products.
Material of the Blades. Stainless steel is the best, longest lasting blade material. The acid environment is hard on other metals.
Material of the Handle. Usually the handles are stainless steel, but to guard against the acidity of the fruits, some are made of plastic.
Number of Blades. They come with one or two blades.
Kind of Blades. Smooth or wavy are available. The wavy ones will cut easier through the tough skin of a cantaloupe.
Carry Pouch. Some fruit workers like to keep their knife handy, by having a pouch attached to their belt.
The most popular selection is the 5 3/4″ fruit/vegetable knife 95-113e.
We’ve all become accustomed to cooking for ourselves during the COVID-19 quarantine. But wouldn’t it be so nice to relax and have a personal chef come by and do it all for you? Today is Personal Chef’s Day, a day where all of us can dream about having a personal chef!
What would you ask your personal chef to make for you first?
-fillet mignon with an array of roasted veggies
-a flavorful Indian curry
-a seafood platter
-the options are endless!
I bet your chef would also bring along their American-Made Cutlery knives to make sure everything is sliced and chopped to perfection.
Regardless of the COVID-19 restrictions we face, this 4th of July will be one to remember! Gone are the days where we squish our picnic blankets close together to watch firework displays, and we also won’t go to a crowded parade this year either.
