There are many things in the world that one would love to do at the same time but the problem is that it becomes impossible to decide where to begin. This world is a very strange place to live in and that is saying something because everyone is out to always get one up on one another.
Many people might not agree with the fact but it is true that today’s youngsters, who take pride in calling themselves the youth brigade, are quite rash and want things completely under their control.
The old times were a lot easier as there was little competition and the population was also under control compared to what it is today (not saying that people then had it easy and got everything with no hard work), and the individuals then were quite clear in their mind about what they wanted to do in life.
They had the advantage of respecting their elders and always listening to what they had to say. While everyone dislikes their parents ordering them around and telling them to behave in a respectable and appropriate manner, the youngsters were aware that it was only for their own good as the parents had their best interests’ at heart.
The then times were such that all you had to do was get a bachelor’s degree from any good college/university and you would have a well paid and respectable job ready at your disposal as interviews were just a formality then and everyone would proudly attach the achievements before their names on the name plaque outside the door of their house.
The professional field has become quite competitive as cut throat competition is paramount everywhere with over burdening population being an added headache, not to mention blatant corruption and nepotism prevalent in different fields like entertainment, sports, politics, etc.
While there are disadvantages like the ones mentioned above, there are also certain advantages where people have the knack of turning their harbored passion into flourishing careers.
The hotel management course has been added to the educational curriculum as cookery has turned from being a menial job into a well paid profession as the men today are far better cooks than what their older counterparts were in their times.
The job of a cook is generally considered very difficult so not many people venture into this field as they consider it below their dignity and integrity but the truth is that it is neither easy nor too difficult.
Those who mock and look down upon cookery as a profession forget the fact that the delicious food that they enjoy eating everyday is through the hard work that these people put into their efforts.
Since we are on the subject of cooks and their delicacies, it is impossible not to talk about the cooking utensils and instruments that can be considered the best friends of all cooks out there.

The most important ones are the knives as they are used to cut raw vegetables and cook them into mouth watering delicacies that are enjoyed by one and all but one must take care that only the best ones are chosen and only an expert cook can understand their significance.
The different models of knives are ones that you can find in different books of kitchen cutlery in different varieties as knives are quite versatile in nature and specific designs are used for different types of food.
The best chefs vouch for the fact that all it requires is a nice razor sharp knife to chop and cut food into small pieces so they want the best one as they consider it to be a sign of pride and dignity.
The best knives for chefs are as follows:
- Folding Knife: In this, you can find reputed brands like CRKT Schwarz Thero, SOG Kiku XR which can be folded and unfolded
