For dicing, slicing and chopping, I use these awesome Wüsthof (Classic Ikon) knives. And no, this isn’t a paid placement, I’ve just always been a fan of this line. Knives are one of the most important tools in the kitchen, and in my opinion, can make or break your experience when cooking. There’s nothing more frustrating (or dangerous) than slicing and dicing with a dull knife – AHG, the worst.

Anywho, the 7-piece knife set (which is what I have, and love) the ‘suggested price’ online is $758, but if you shop around, they’re usually priced down to $400. This may still seem a tad steep, but when you see the price tag on other knives ($3k+), the quality you get for $400 is beyond reasonable. You can find this set here at Crate & Barrel, for $399.

Any leftover soup can be placed in the fridge, and will be good for up to 4 days after. And lastly, we had leftover soup, and i heated some up the following day… and sweet mother of pearl! It’s fantastic the following day too 🙂 I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did!
