It’s fruit trivia time! Which fruit originated in China 4,000 years ago and is a relative of the peach? Your first guess might be the nectarine, right? It is, in fact, the petite and beloved apricot- a fruit rich in vitamins A & C. It made its way slowly westward from China, through the Mediterranean, and finally over to North America, where it mainly settled in California. California produces 95% of our country’s apricots. Yum!

How do you want to enjoy an apricot today?

  • Grab your fruit knife and cut yourself a fresh slice
  • Make a yummy tart or homemade preserves
  • Have an afternoon snack of dried apricots
  • Use your fruit knife to chop some into your morning granola
  • Plant a tree

Did you do your meal planning for the week yet? Maybe a Pasta Monday, Taco Tuesday, Pizza Wednesday, Quiche Thursday, and a Bouillabaisse Friday. Wait, Bouill-a-what? Even the most seasoned home chef might not know exactly what a bouillabaisse is, so here you go: it is a fish stew that French fishermen created in the port city of Marseille. The name of the stew comes from “to boil” and “to simmer.”

You can really use any variety of fresh fish and shellfish in the stew, and simmer them with tomatoes, potatoes, celery, and onions. Don’t forget to serve a warm grilled baguette on the side with a traditional French spicy mayonnaise called rouille.

And since the most important ingredient in this fish stew is fish, don’t forget to sharpen your American-Made Cutlery fillet knife before you chop up your ingredients.

Happy cooking and eating!

Baking bread from scratch sounds like a daunting task for most. Even today, on National Homemade Bread Day, the most seasoned bakers will probably admit they’d prefer not to delve into the fickle and complicated world of bread-making.

Too many questions can arise:
Am I using the right flour?
Can I knead with a mixer, or should I do it by hand?
Proof it once or twice?
Did I bake it long enough?
Or perhaps: What on earth is this person even talking about??

Who are we kidding, just save yourself a whole day in the kitchen and take the easy route- go to that aromatic bakery down the street and pick up a warm, fresh loaf that the professionals made. Sourdough, ciabatta, or brioche? Yum. Yum. Yum.
Don’t forget to slice it up for everyone with your American-made Cutlery bread slicer.
