What are your favorite ingredients and tools? I have a 8 inch Wusthoff [knife] which is my baby. I also use everything from microplanes, to zesters, to peelers, to graters. I love my new pasta maker, fresh pasta is a new obsession. I keep things pretty simple: a good olive oil, Maldon sea salt, and let the food speak for itself. I like to keep things fresh and easy. I usually have a ton of vegetables in the fridge, every type of green I can get my hands on. I always have some good cheeses and maybe a fabulous ice cream.
