Anthony Bourdain knows his way around a kitchen. The chef/author/TV host has made a career out of food and exploration and he’s picked up a lot of knowledge along the way. When he shares any of that knowledge, we listen. The latest nugget will help you julienne vegetables, break down a bird, and handle most of your kitchen prep. During the premiere of his new documentary, Wasted! The Story of Food Waste, Bourdain spoke about a tool every home cook should have. “As a starter chef knife, the Global is pretty good for a first timer,” Bourdain told the crowd. A chef’s knife is the quintessential tool for anyone who cooks, and the Global G-2, which will run you $100, gets high marks for being perfectly balanced, lightweight, and extremely durable. One of the most important elements of a chef’s knife is how it feels in your hand, and we agree with Bourdain that the Global G-2 is tough to top at such a reasonable price.
