Saddle up to your home bars and pour yourself a stiff one—cuz today’s the day for the blog redesign, an awesome giveaway contest (courtesy of Jamie at CSN Stores)….and I’m having surgery yet again (probably RIGHT NOW, as you read this).
So….look around….what do you think? Nice, right? My friend Dane at Dane Henas Design designed the cool logo and my other awesome and gorgeous friend Danielle put this whole thing together. I couldn’t have done it without them, so many many thanks guys.
Last year G got me a new knife that I’d read about in Bon Appetit—the Mundial chef’s knife—from Brazil! It was really inexpensive and was supposedly a good, sharp knife, especially for the price. Well, I absolutely love it. It’s not as hefty as my Global, and the handle is pretty big for my little hands. but now that I’ve gotten used to it I really like it. The big blade gives me a lot of control and actually is easier to use because I don’t have to use a lot of arm strength with it. I also have a Mundial boning knife that is great. It is super sharp. It is so sharp that when I was looking at it at the restaurant supply store I cut myself and was bleeding all over the place. What was even funnier is that the salesman was standing right next to me and I was trying to hide the fact that I was bleeding all over the knife. Good thing that was the one I was planning to buy or I would’ve been obligated to buy that knife anyway.
Anyway, in honor of the new site…and the fact that I’m going under the knife today, I thought I would give one lucky winner a brand-new Mundial 8″ Chef’s Knife, courtesy of CSN Stores. How to win? Subscribe to the blog and leave me a comment. The deadline will be Thursday, March 4th, at 5pm PST. I’ll put the numbers into one of those random number generator thingys and post the winner on Friday. Sound good?
