According to my son Jaymes, with a good chef's knife, a paring knife and a slicer, we can do anything and everything we ever need to do in a kitchen. You can do 90 percent of everything you ever need to do in the kitchen with just a chef's knife.
Jaymes has been in a culinary school for the past 8 months. He has never had so much fun while learning. He's enjoying himself and meeting top chefs in the industry.
For the past two days, he has been volunteering in our international culinary team, assisting the participants in the preparations of dishes for the upcoming competition. He is trying to learn as much as he could and in the meantime, gain experience so he could be a participant one day.
It is tough for a teenager. He's on his feet for many hours. Besides his normal school hours, he's putting in more than 8 hours volunteering. That's his passion, I can't stop him.
It's amazing how much skill he has been picking up in these few months. I doubt anyone would dare to antagonize a Ninjado-trained chef these days. Jaymes could debone, chop, slice, dice a chicken within 3 minutes. *gulp*
