After 3 years of working as a waitress in a fast-food chain, I have finally saved enough money to pursue something that has been close to my heart. My passion has always been in preparing different meals and desserts for different occasions. I can still remember how this dream started. A group of my father’s friends came over for dinner and told me that they’d definitely hire me to cook dishes for their parties. I often volunteered to cook for small gatherings for free until I started getting calls to professionally cater to special events during my spare time.
Now that I am starting a catering business, I make sure that I don’t waste time and maximize all the resources I can get. Being in this industry demands efficiency, which can be achieved with proper meal preparation. As a starter, it is vital to have an idea on which best kitchen knives set for the money. I prefer to get a cutlery set with a lot of knife pieces because I would normally be doing specialized preparation for my menu. I always go for a forged and high carbon no-stain knife for durability and rust prevention. It may cost a little more than the others, but the quality would definitely serve its purpose.
Another point to check is the knife’s tang. I would choose one with a full tang because it would mean a solid connection with the blade and the handle. This gives me a sense of security because there would be no forcing required, therefore, accidents can be prevented. Of course, the knives should be sharp and balanced for easy maneuvering especially during peak season. And lastly, I make sure to have a feel of the grip on each one so I know that I can work effectively. Once I find the good one to buy, my next purchase would be my very own catering dish sets.
