I started cooking during my first year of college. I had experimented by then with just a few different recipes but always kept it safe and just tried the basics. And then I discovered one of Jamie Oliver’s books. It was Jamie’s Ministry of Food which, in my opinion, is one of his best books. Because it teaches you to take risks and to go on a little further than your comfort zone when it comes to cooking. Which for a beginner cook, as I was at that time, was the perfect push to go a little further.
So here I am a few years later. I can’t vouch for my talents when it comes to cooking because I, of course, make mistakes like anyone else. But I have started taking more risks and pushing myself further with my cooking and I even started baking. So I have to say that his influence and that first book from him was a real push for me. For which I am really grateful.
But his influence on me hasn’t stopped there. Since I discovered him, I have been buying his books, checking out his website and watching his cooking shows whenever I can. And even though I may not follow his recipes to the letter, just watching him cook and the way he uses ingredients can be enough sometimes to inspire me. And speaking of his cooking shows…
That’s also where I notice not only how he works, but also what he works with. And here I am referring strictly to his cooking utensils. From the knives and forks and spoons to all the pots and pans that he has around. Since I started cooking I have always dreamed of the perfect kitchen. Properly furnished and with all the utensils I need right at the reach of a hand. So I started looking at what Jamie was using in his everyday shows.
And I liked what I saw. From the fact that he had everything ready and at hand, I loved the way they looked. Only later did I discover that he had his own line of kitchen utensils. But here I am recommending them to you and hopefully helping someone else discover them as well.
