Steven and I decided to do some shopping for our kitchen and purchased quite a few things, including: a Kapoosh knife block, Cuisinart ice cream maker, Forschner chef knife, Cuisinart nonstick skillet, and the piece de resistance – a Chefmate dutch oven.
The knife block is seriously cool. It’s adjustable with no premade slots so it’ll fit just about any knife. Since we buy our knives individually it’s been a real challenge trying to find one that will accommodate all of them particularly the Chinese cleaver but it fits in this block no problem.
I spent weeks looking for the Chefmate Dutch oven, calling numerous Target stores in my area and finally found one. It is the Cook’s Illustrated Best Buy that performed comparable to the Le Creuset for only a fraction of the price. Now I can stop cooking everything in our saucepan.
Armed with my new gorgeous Dutch oven, I set out to bake the no-knead bread sensation that swept the nation.
Hundreds if not thousands have blogged about Jim Lahey's No-Knead Bread so I won't bore everyone with the details but it did turn out very yummy.
