Make a meal worth remembering with our Chef Essentials Kit. Start off with a simple dishtowel from Fog Linen. The cloth is slightly thicker than average, and adds some extra heft and durability to your cleaning tool kit. Each one is spun from premium Lithuanian flax and gets softer and more absorbent with every wash. Follow it up with a set of knives, each one made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel. This set of four comes with colored wood handles, varnished to protect against moisture and dirt.
Once you have your instruments all laid out and ready to go, consider cooking one of the recipes in this cookbook by Ferran Adria, one of the world's most influential chefs, and the pioneer of the acclaimed Spanish restaurant elBulli. The Family Meal follows the same recipes Adria and his staff eat for their dinners, with 31 menus and 93 recipes designed for home cooking. Step-by-step instructions guide you through basic recipes for dishes like chocolate cake, guacamole, and roast chicken, plus some interesting others from Adria's own genius, all with help from over 1,500 illustrations.
