I promised earlier to write about the knife and utensil kit each student is given when they arrive at Cordon Bleu.
Here are the knives in the kit:
In order from left to right they are:
filleting knife (flexible blade)
offset palette knife
Also in the kit are the following utensils:
In the top row are:
probe thermometer / timer
In the front row, sitting on the silicone mat are:
12 piping nozzles
2 piping bags
The kit comes in a special zipped up case with lots of compartments to hold everything.
The knives and many of the utensils are made by Wusthof and are top quality and pretty expensive. Even the little paring knife costs over £30. Consequently I have marked everything with my initials.
