Knife Skills Book

An Illustrated Kitchen Guide to Using the Right Knife the Right Way.

Good knife skills are key to feeling confident and comfortable in the kitchen. Chef Bill Collins shows you how to choose knives that will feel good in the hand, and then he shows you exactly how to slice, chop, peel, bone, and dice with ease. The clear step-by-step instructions and illustrations also show you how to cut and carve seafood, poultry, meats, fruits, and vegetables. Includes information on using other sharp kitchen tools, including microplanes and graters, scissors, vegetable peelers, and mandolins.

Bill Collins is the author of two forthcoming Storey Basics titles, Knife Skills and Making & Using Vinegar. He graduated from the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts. He cooked at the old Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Boston and directed new product development at Harbor Sweets (Salem, Massachusetts) prior to establishing Chef Bill, Inc., in 2001. He has been a professional chef, a personal chef, a food-industry consultant, and a cooking instructor, giving classes from community colleges to Whole Foods and Stonewall Kitchen. He lives in Pelham, Massachusetts.

  • “Pleasant Hill Grain has outstanding products and even more importantly, the customer service to back them up. In the rare event of an issue, it’s the customer service that makes the difference. That's why I will keep ordering from PHG.”
