The Kitchen Brigade
For our holiday guide, we've streamlined our offering to make it easier to match your person to the perfect gift this year (that person may or may not be yourself).
This guide is based on the classic Kitchen Brigade system. Created in France at the Hotel Ritz by legendary Chef August Escoffier, it mimics the organization of a military unit.
The Chef's title matches to their skill level to help you find exactly what you need for your kitchen arsenal.
Chef de Commis Gifts
Chef de Commis is where you start. Bright eyed and bushy tailed, this position is for young cooks and fresh culinary school graduates. You're in charge of peeling potatoes and dicing onions. Here we have the right tools to start your culinary journey. Say good bye to your cheap mass-retailer knife with a plastic handle: welcome to your first serious knife.
If you love to cook at home and looking for the basic necessities to upgrade your knife work and bring some finesse into your kitchen: these are the knives and items for you!
Start with our classic Gyuto, our best selling knife and a staple in any kitchen. These options are all approachable for any skill level.
Chef de Partie Gifts
Chef de Partie is your next level, sometimes specialized, Chef de Partie is the master of the kitchen line. In the trenches, you're searing, grilling, making sauces (unless you work in a Michelin-starred kitchen with a dedicated saucier). You're dedicated to making sure your food will pass muster with the Sous Chef. You don't need fluff, you need the core tools to upgrade your gear.
Up your game to the next level with these tools. These options will complement your budding knife roll and become your new favorites.
