The Bread and the Knife: A Life in 26 Bites
"You'll wish the alphabet had more letters just so Dawn Drzal would keep on writing.”—Laura Shapiro, author of What She Ate, Julia Child, Something from the Oven, and Perfection Salad As it was for M. F. K. Fisher in The Gastronomical Me, food is more than a metaphor in The Bread and the Knife. It is the organizing principle of an existence. Starting with "A Is for Al Dente," the loosely linked chapters evoke an alphabet of food memories that recount a woman’s emotional growth from the challenges of youth to professional accomplishment, marriage, and divorce. Betrayal is embodied in an overripe melon, her awakening in a Béarnaise sauce. Passion fruit juice portends the end of a first marriage, while tarte Tatin offers redemption. Each letter serves up a surprising variation on the struggle for self-knowledge, the joy and pain of familial and romantic love, and food’s astonishing ability to connect us with both the living and the dead.Ranging from her grandmother's suburban kitchen to an elegant New York restaurant, a longhouse in Borneo, and a palace in Rajasthan, The Bread and the Knife charts the vicissitudes of a woman forced to swallow some hard truths about herself while discovering that the universe can dispense surprising second chances.The book includes six re...

Victorinox Swiss Army 8" Serrated Bread Knife 5.2533.21 1-piece Black Fibrox Handle
Although called a Fibrox Pro "Bread Knife", this versatile knife offers much more than its name indicates. Leveling cakes, cutting sandwiches, and slicing tomatoes or other easily bruised fruits and vegetables are all simple tasks for this knife. Designed to effortlessly cut through foods that are hard on the outside and soft on the inside, the serrated blade offers the perfect balance of strength and dexterity, making this multifaceted knife a must-have for every home chef. The sharp points of the serrated edge pierce into hard crusty loaves or soft skinned fruits and veggies to maintain a strong hold and offer better control throughout slicing. The scallops between each point reduce friction, so each slice feels effortless. The scallops also prevent the knife from squashing bread slices or the tender interiors of fruits and vegetables. The heft helps to make quick work of melon rinds and pineapples, while the razor sharp blade is perfect for slicing delicate eggplants and peaches. Whether you prefer to cut wafer-thin slices or large hearty ones, the thin blade offers the precision needed for even slices every time. Optimally weighted with high-quality, lightweight European steel reduces hand and wrist fatigue, making it comfortable even after extended use in the home kitche...
