    Four essential knives:
    1 - Chef's knife
    2 - Paring Knife
    3 - filet/boning knife
    4- Cleaver
    *Bread knife is nice to have but non-essential.

    Cookware: (to easily serve 2-4 people... not so easily serve 4-8)
    1 - Largest heaviest stock pot with lid you can afford and your kitchen/coking needs can handle
    2 - Small sauce pan with lid
    3 - 12" fry pan for everything (avoid non-stick... but high quality heavy stainless steel)
    4 - 6" fry pan for eggs (that is literally all I use mine for... eggs)
    5 - Heavy roasting pan with rack
    6 - Colander / China Cap / Chinois
    7 - At least one cast iron pan
    8 - Cast Iron Dutch pot w/ lid
    *Mortar... Nice to have but non-essential

    Not sure if vegetable oil is good for oiling your cutting board. Apparently the oil can grow bacteria and probably poison everyone. Maybe linseed oil is best.

      Frisbee 'n' Cookies 2 months ago

      @Mordicai Thank you for that input, I guess I'm too used dried herbs and spices as the 'fresh' ones where I am (Australia) are ridiculously expensive and wilting. So a mortar and pestle is useless to me.

    • Mordicai
      Mordicai 2 months ago

      I like to use dried rosemary since I can't find the plant itself at my stores, and keeping it whole is very distracting when eaten, so I like to use a mortar and pestle to crush it up so it's more consistent like thyme and oregano. It's also good for making a dry rub depending on what you use.
