My favourite tools

Photo

If you've ever watched Nigella Lawson's cookery programmes, you might have noticed she tends to use the same knife over and over. I expect most cooks have a weapon of choice, and mine is my Zwilling Santoku knife. It's just the right weight and size for me, and every time I use it I get great joy from such a well-designed tool.

I also have a Zwilling Chef's knife which suffered an unfortunate accident somewhere back in the mists of time, and no longer has a pointed nose. They don't come cheap, these Zwillings, so I can't afford to replace it but I still use it. But it doesn't come close to the Santoku.

At the other end of the scale, I love the Kuhn Rikon range - cheap, but really colourful and not bad quality either.
