After yesterday’s TasteMakers interview with Dave Caldiero, I asked him to share a few of his essentials kitchen tools as part of the TasteMakers takeaway. So here they are: ten classic kitchen tools that, when treated well, will pretty much last a lifetime.
If Dave hadn’t already convinced you of his love for making pasta, the fact that half of his list involves pasta-making tools should be proof enough. I’ve linked to everything so that you can stock up on these tools although the bonus item is decidedly unique as it is a coffee mug with a picture of his adorably gregarious daughter, Opal. You can catch a glimpse of the mug in the last photo in Dave’s TasteMakers interview although it’s safe to say you won’t be able to purchase it anytime soon.
2. German Steel 12-inch chef knife (It came with Dave’s first knife kit from culinary school and he uses it to make hand-cut pasta.)
8. Rolling pin
10. Bowl scraper (which pretty much lives in his back pocket)
*Bonus: Coffee mug with a picture of Dave’s adorable daughter, Opal, whom he calls his, “true inspiration!”
